Can someone suggest a replacement for Clarion F8VF-18C830BA 6 CD Changer.

  • I need a suggested replacement for Clarion F8VF-18C830BA 6 CD Changer. It is a factory installed unit in a 1998 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series. The receiver in this car is also factory and besides the CD Changer mounted in the trunk, it has a tape deck in the receiver mounted in the dash.

     

    When I try to play any CD it seeks through all of the 6 CD Magazine and then gives me a "Bad Disc" error.

    Can someone suggest a replacement for the changer that will interface with the factory stereo or suggest a replacement that can be modified to interface with the factory stereo?

  • Hey Keith,

    I'm not aware of a CD changer other than the OEM Lincoln one that will work with your stereo. You may want to give Lincoln a call or try to find one at a salvage yard.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

  • It may just need an adjustment to the transport or a cleaning. Do you have an electronics service place nearby?
