Repair or Replace
IF you try to remove the CD without taking it apart, you risk the chance of scratching the CD
The Mechanism needs to be Replaced, as there are NO "parts" (i.e. gears, laser, servo, motor, etc) GM only sells the complete updated mechanism.
Repair est $285.00 - 365.00 depending on which mechanism, shop & parts.
Many times you can find the same Unit On-Line, E-Bay, etc for less than the Repair, but you would need GM Dealer to Program the Unit
IF you are going to have it Repaired, "do not" try to remove the CD's or take it apart, as most Shops will NOT Repair if it shows signs of taking apart.
The Repair Shop will you the CD's in it, once it is repaired
