Just a quick ??? if the oem cd changer in my B5.5 will work in a B5.
The reason I ask is I am finally done (92%) with my stereo install but I failed to remove the cd's I had in my changer before the Monsoon went see-ya. I'm guessing the Monsoon sent a signal to power up the cd changer since it is dead in the water without it. It worked peachy previous to the HU removal. I have a neighbor with a B5 I could borrow just for the power.
Is the location of the HU wire to changer in the same location B5/ B5.5? My 03 wagon was in the driver side cubby in the cargo area. I would like to know just in case if I have to stand next to the freeway exit with my cardboard sign "Will work for VW OEM CD changer signal wire use" and I get a taker.
Thanks for the info.
Oh yeah, all I can say about my new stereo sound is one word F'n tits.

IIRC somewhere along the lines VW switched changers, some use a circular plug and othes use a square plug...

Atleast this is how I remember when I was selling mine two years ago...could be wrong though.
