Dash storage pocket in place of in-dash changer?
Took my 6 disc in dash changer out of the center dash and I was under the impression there was a storage pocket to go in place of it. But I called the dealer and they said there was only a blank cover available. Has anyone ever found a pocket to fit it that spot? I'm hoping so. Otherwise I would have just left it in there instead of a blank hole! Thanks!

Gotcha! I called Cadillac and they couldn't even get the pocket only the blank cover. The one on eBay SAYS it will work. That guy doesn't offer refunds. Guess I'll have to take a gamble or maybe see if he can give me dimensions. Thanks for all your help, I'm new to getting this escalade so I'm sure you'll see me asking more questions very soon!

These pockets are to small. The escalades and denali's all came with the 6 disc changer that is larger than the single disc slave player that Tahoes and other trucks came with. Only thing I came up with from the dealer is a blank cover. I just called and asked two dealerships. I just sold my changer and now I'm not sure what to do. I did find an aftermarket one though that does work. It's just shiny plastic and not padded or have rubber on the bottom. Better than a blank hole though!

Could you please give me the width of it? Give the width with the fins on the side and the width without the fins. If you could send me a pic that would be great!
Does it look like this? With that extra front plate? http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=53653916123

The opening is 6 inches wide without bracket on front and looks like the attached pics.

Yep that does look identical. I'll take it. There's a few on eBay for around the same price but they offer refunds if it doesn't work. I suppose I could always sell it though. Not sure I can pm because I'm pretty new. You can send me a money request through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want you can ship it out tomorrow and then I can pay you so you know how much shipping is? Let me know how you want to do it. Thanks again!
