Smile Magazine Tray Stuck fix

I searched every forum up and down to find the solution to my the tray in my 6 cd magazine changer being stuck. That was after hours of messing with it my self sticking cards and tools in trying to force the tray back into the magazine. Then I found this thread for range rovers.


No Joke it worked and I was amazed.

Just try tapping on the magazine with the back of a screw driver. while pressing the eject button.

I did that tray went right back in and out popped the magazine. I put it back in and the console recognized the cd changer again. Now it works like a charm.

when I first read the thread I said Yeah right that's not going to solve my problem. Boy I'm glad I tried.

Good luck and your welcome._a__a2_

I bought my '08 E65 about a month ago and have been dealing with a stuck cartridge ever since. I saw your post this morning and tried the 'fix' after work.

PERFECT! About 4 medium-firm taps with a screwdriver and BOOM! Out it came.

Thanks so much for the link!
