Hi there,

I am trying to remove the Denison 500 installation on my car.

so far I have found the Denison unit itself, and it was situated just above the cd changer. (See pics)

I am having a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to remove the plastic covering of the CD Changer so that I can disconnect the fibre optic cable from the PCM to Denison, and re-connect it to the CD Changer.

What is the best way to do it? Do i have to reset the PCM (148 trick) once i have disconnected the Denison? I was going to leave the cables in place just in case I want it reconnected in future.

Many thanks in advance.

First step was to remove the plastic frame.

It was easy enough once i found the workshop manual.

I now had to remove the top trim to get access of all the cables on the side.

This little trim in the middle got me. I googled it and eventually found that you have to Push to the right and it will come off...

Lucky i didn't pull it out by force!

i swapped the cable which was going to the Denison and plugged it to the CD changer.

Before I put all the trim back, I tried it in the car and it worked brilliantly!

Now I have an nice looking Denison 500 box sitting in my drawer.

Tis abit sad when I am posting replies back to myself. lol :D

Ps: those White specks are little hail stones coming down as I was trying to get this down... not the best weather to do it, I know!

Well chauffed with that, got to know abit more about my car again.

Hope this helps someone.
 
Thread resurrection!

Useful info, but was wondering what else is needed to actually remove the cd changer as mine needs to be repaired (997 turbo) It stopped working a while ago, it doesn't recognise the magazine already in, and it won't eject.
 
Interesting read and unusual as most are fitting the denison not removing it.
but good to see with pictures not sure why no one else commented as you pointed out :grin: have you put the Denison up for sale and get some cash back :thumb:
 
Good write up kench!! Now the dennison is sitting in your drawer are you most likely to be wanting to sell??

Cheers

J
