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

    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 $$$.

    Hello,
    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...

    Thanks

    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.
