Lexus LS400: ,My CD changer is playing up in my 1993 Lexus

Customer Question

My CD changer is playing up in my 1993 Lexus LS400 It works reasonably well on No. 6, less so on 5 and struggles to engage with CD's on 1, 2, 3, 4. On 5 & 6 it is very sensitive to small bumps in the road. Can it be overhauled, is it something I can do ?

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
From what you have described here this is an internal mechanical fault with the guides/tracks that hold and move the cd's into place when playing.This can be caused by a worn guide/track.In some cases it can be repaired but has to be repaired by an authorized repair facility as they will need to take it apart for inspection to see what all needs repaired or replaced then order the parts in for repair.In other cases it may need replaced if the parts it needs are no longer available.I don't see any manual ways to repair this myself and is best done by an authorized repair center or removed and replaced.
Thanks Pete
