Default CD in ICE wont eject in Mercedes E270

Note from Mod : Do NOT use excessive dots in your post..........like............this................ .....

Hi Guys

This is for a friend who is awaiting TBHP membership yet.

His Mercedes E270 2005 model has a problem with the cd changer. Nothing electrical or electronic; there is a cd inside which works fine.

Problem is that he can neither eject this cd or put other CDs in. The button to slide open the changer doesn't respond. If you manually pull out the changer which happens easily without resistance it doesn't stay in place. I'm guessing that the spring has malfunctioned and is not able to hold the mechanism.

Mercedes were not able to help and neither was a local trusted garage. So the queries are:

1. Can anyone recommend a place to get it repaired?
2. Is there any place where I can get a replacement audio system, preferably a newer one with features such as aux / USB / iPod connect? And would anyone know the approx cost?

Appreciate the help

Cheers

Cant visualize your problem. Would it be possible to post a few pics of the system and the changer?

1. Is the changer in the dash or in the trunk (mecedes has both options)?
2. Does the display give an error when you try to eject the CD?
3. Is it just the CD or the entire CD changer cartridge that is not ejected?
4. When you press the silver button under the hazzard light switch does the panel pop up?
5. Assuming you ahve a in-dash changer when you press eject for a CD do you hear any clicking noises?

A friend has a similar problem in a older C200 wiht a trunk mounted changer in the US. The cost of a whole new changer was about $1000 from the MB dealer. MB parts are really expensive considering you could get an Alpine changer for a third of that price.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the real late reply but the last couple of weeks have been uncharacteristically hectic.

I'm attaching a picture of the system. The changer is in the dash and there is no error while trying to eject the CD, either on the display nor are there any clicks. It simply doesn't respond.

The changer doesn't pop out on pressing the silver button (marked 1) either but, it can be pulled out with just a little pressure on the bottom (marked 2).

Would there be any chance of repairing it?

Irrespective of a Mercedes or Nano this happens at times and won't be serious.Not that the unit is to be thrown off.

The problem could be in the ejection mechanism, where some micro switches would have gone kaput and needs replacement and a fairly capable guy could fix it.
I know a guy who fixes this bug, but he is at down Kochi. Mumbai may not be short of a capable guy for this blip. rest assured, help may be on the way from Mumbai TBhpians.

Ranjit, this seems to be a minor issue (like rajeev says). I am surprised that your mercedes dealer has not been able to fix it. I would contact Bass and Trouble aka Ajay Kamath who operates near Haji Ali. The other option would be Bharat Audio in Worli near the fly over. At Bharat Audio ask for Mr. Gandhi or Lila. Refer to TBHP's Mumbai directory for details.
