Hello, My omegas cd play has died and need replacing, I have been looking at 2nd hand lower spec unit from another omega or a 5 disc unit from a ss, Can anyone tell me what is involved with getting a replacement unit to work Re programing etc.
Any idea of the cost?
Thanks...

cheapest and easiest way is to get a remanufactured unit through holden from the stereos maker
there are many issues including vin stamping that makes it VER VERY diffcult and costly to change one to another
and thats not even trying to fit a different version like ss to omega

hmm
no code if just popping in and out
but the cd mechanism unless something has been pushed in there is very hard to get at to fidle with
lets just say had a few coins etc....
