How do i remove 6 disc changer?
Have an 02 Escalade and I'm wondering how to remove the 6 disc changer that's in the lower, center, of the dash? I didnt want to go yanking on stuff. Are there any screws or does it pop on/off like the radio dash bezel? Thanks!

Just have to pop off the bezels.. If I recall correctly you have to remove the cup holder bezel, top radio/gauge bezel, and then the bezel around the cd changer.. once you pop it off you just have to unscrew 2 bolts.. one on each side of the changer and than you take it out and unplug it.. all the bezels just pop off..

I just looked and the peripheral in my car is actually not supposed to support my year of escalade but it does somehow. It's GMAHLANB but it's the same price as the PAC one and does say its supported.

So even if I never use onstar, I still need the one made for w/ onstar just so I don't lose the door chimes correct?
Also, did you have the kenwood Bluetooth ad-on when you had yours? I'm wondering how good they actually work, especially when streaming music from my iPhone via Bluetooth. What model HU did you have?

For Bluetooth I bought the galaxy 1000 which takes your existing onstar system and turns it into a Bluetooth system. This setup however doesn't stream audio from phone to radio but I didn't need that for I just plugged in through dock connector. I never have used or seen how their addon functions. I know the kca-bt200 has audio from iPhone to HU. So either a HU supported by that one or the newest you should be fine.
I have the head unit kvt-717DVD and I love it. But my needs are a little less than some others for example no sat radio or hd radio even though I'd like to have those and it is a option with this HU if I ever have money I can use towards these in other words not very high priority ATM.

Well I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't get this changer out! I got the bezel off that surrounds it. I can't get the Cupholder bezel off because the changer is in the way? What am I doing wrong? I took out all the screws in sight! The changer itself just slides out when you push the side plastic pieces down. But only comes out so far then it stops because of the Cupholder bezel. Any suggestions?

Ok got it out!! So change of plans...I'm not putting the kenwood DVD in the changer spot. So where did you get the storage pocket that goes in there? I called the Chevy dealer and they couldn't find anything for 02 escalade?

I didn't get a pocket but if you want it you need to talk to someone with a Tahoe suburban or Yukon with a pocket and ask for it. I called my Cadillac dealer and they knew what I was talking about but for them to get that it's 200 dollars or more so I just leave it as a hole.
Also here's one on eBay again:
