I have no idea. Have you considered using one of the commercially available lens cleaning discs?

I can not play a cleaning CD, because the player don't play it...

I wouldn't try it. If you do it yourself anyway, use the Lockpick installation guide to remove the unit. From there, I recommend great caution.

A professional car audio shop will likely save you a lot of trouble, and probably $$$.

the installation guide is OK to remove the unit...
but I want open the CD/DVD player because I want to clean the lense.

Now, I can not find a professional car audio shop for Cadillac / Delco or Bose here in Germany.
All shops can repair BMW, Porsche or other european cars not GM...

I would think that regardless of the name on the outside of the unit that the CD/DVD laser assemblies are the same on the inside.
