    Hey Guys, I have a 2004 GLX Wagon and I'm wondering how to tell if the CD player is capable of taking a factory 6 disc changer if I were to buy one on ebay. The CD player is OEM and looks exactly like this one: 2003-2004 Volkswagen Passat Factory AM/FM Radio Monsoon CD Player - R-1608-2 Thank You

    I have OEM 6 disc CD Changer with a 6 disc cartridge for 98-05 Passats. (I just sold the CD Changer without a cartridge.) $70 plus shipping. I tested them in my B5.5 2001.5 Passat and they connect perfectly and work well.

    Calling all experienced AWM Engine Speed Sensor Changers IS this where the engine (crankshaft) speed sensor is on the AWM engine? I'm going to be tackling this tomorrow morning so I'd like to have as much information as possible. Thanks, Mike

    My six cd changer has finally bitten the dust after eight years. I'd be happy to simply replace it, rather than getting new gear, but Drew wants $350. Crutchfield wants $279. For that kind of money, I might as well get a new HU. Anyone know of a better price on a NEW changer. I have no interest...

    Where does the Phatbox mount in a Sedan and how is it interfaced to the HU? Does it connect to the existing cable for the CD Changer? I can find all sorts of info on the Phatbox but I'm wondering where it's supposed to mount - I don't have much room left in my trunk. How much coolant is lost...

    Are the OEM 6-disc CD Changers for the B5 all the same? For example, would a CD Changer currently installed in a 1999 Passat non-Monsoon work in a 2003 Passat GLX with Monsoon? I tried searching, but couldn't find anything conclusive. Thanks!

    My dealer said the trunk is pre-wired for a 6-cd changer and that I should buy an after market one to save my self some money and also get a nicer one (such as mp3 playback, etc). I was wondering if any brand of cd changer would work through the stock head unit or if only certain brands do...
