hi there fairly easy job, four bolts hold the changer to the cage and there is the power cable and the d2b fibre optic link cable. with the changer removed however the d2b fibre optics will no longer work so no more phone,voice or nav. the only way to make these work again is to remove the link for the cd changer but make sure the fibre optic signal still runs through all the devices in the correct order. the link cable for the fibre optics can be taken apart and relinked to add or remove gadgets but you do have to take care and be patient when doing this( i added a cd changer to my car, that only has phone bluetooth, made my own daisy link d2b using 2 single d2b cables) if you are confident of taking apart the d2b cable make sure you make a note of how the d2b signal goes through all devices and just remove the cd link but keep the signal going through the same way, if this is done correctly all gadgets will still work. you could get a cd changer from a breakers( thats what i did) and just replace the cd changer then no need to mess around with dismantling the link cable. or alternatively source a d2b link cable with all the links you need without the cd changer, it all depends of course on if you want to keep a cd changer and if you plan on getting yours fixed or replaced ? hope this helps.
