Has anyone else experienced a problem when ejecting CDs? Mine often makes it about half of the way out, then goes back in. You can hear the motor wirring. Any fix or TSB reference?

I have so many problems with my stereo (cliking in background, loud click often when turning it on, CDs advance when unit is off) that I feel I really have a lemon deck. I have asked BMW to replace it but they say it works fine.

Try doing an archive search on bimmer.org's E46 forum for this exact problem. There was a TSB out and it involves replacing NOT the CD player but the trim panel above the CD player. It appears the trim panel is pinching the CD player a little bit and it triggers the sensor that senses a jam and will not eject your CD. Some have suggested a "credit card" fix but since I don't own the indash, I have no idea how it works. My changer works just fine except sometimes CD with Stomper labels craps out.

yep-- this problem only applies to cars with wood trim. there's something about the wood trim panel which presses down on the cd player and prevents cd's from ejecting. The fix involves them filing down something.

Mine does the same thing. I rather have the wood trim piece fixed (trimmed) than have the radio replaced with a remaned. unit.
