My '05 V70R HU-850 cd-changer has stopped playing CDs. It used to have occasional errors while switching discs but now it won't play them at all. When a CD is inserted it sounds like it loads and unloads several times before giving up and ejecting.<p>I would like to get it repaired or replace it with a working unit.<p>Anyone know who works on these units or have a used one they want to sell?<p>Thanks!<br>Tony<p>btw - It has NAV if that makes any difference.

Re: HU-850 repair/replacement WANTED!!! (Tony_M)

That should be covered under warranty...if you dont have that anymore...then you can check out this part out, <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=121610" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=121610</A>, the radio is available still...i think. But the OP (ChilledMan) will not be back in town until Wednesday.<p>Good luck...for these cars, nav doesnt matter actually....well in mine (04), its not, I could be wrong about the 05+.<p>If your in the BX, you can also check out another fella who lives there...check out the NY thread in the regional section <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=99757" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=99757</A>.

If you can't find a replacement HU, an iPod and an iMIV adapter are a good functional equivalent for the cd-changer.

I have the same problem. It also chews up my CD's and scratches them so they can't be played.

Join us in the 21st century, it's a great time to be a gadget hound. I haven't actually played a CD in about 4 years now. I buy one, take it home, rip it to my PC and load the MP3's onto my various players. No skips, no scratches, no heat damage, no changing...

Sadly I don't think my extended warranty covers this problem as my R does the same damn thing.

If anything is ever missing off of my R Tony I will come looking for you!LOL. I have to look, I think my girl may have tossed it when I changed my radio. If not I am sure someone on here can help you. Shoot me an IM, also check us out at the thread posted by Dave above. It would be nice to have another V70R in the crew.

Yeah don't you wish I were Dave! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If I could part out and get what I owe on it then I would. I know I can't though so I guess I'm stuck with it for a while longer.

I should have one as soon as the aftermarket install is done. It is a HU-850 from a 2009 S60, if that matters.<p>About a week old.
