Dealer charged me $82 Aussie for the filter this week.

Freight was $68 for the lot.

Looking forward to the bin and being able to use the under arm rest for "real" storage.
Bin arrived today with the two oil filters inside. Looks like a project this weekend.

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Has anyone swapped out the CD player for a DVD in combination with Lockpick or Rax Jailbreaker? If so, where did you find it?

i haven't tried it myself yet but i've read elsewhere that the physical drive is always the same CD/DVD/BD drive. Apparently if you just put MP3's on a DVD or BD it will play them in a "CD" equipped vehicle.

I'm not sure if the harness on CD only models has the video lines between the cd and the head unit. If it did then i'd guess customtronix could enable the appropriate software if asked. But just a guess.

I actually think i've seen drives for RAM trucks on the customronix website so contacting them would probably be a good start. Sounds like they can enable the CD big but makes no mention of video. .RAX OEM CD player | Customtronix

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

I just removed my CD player and installed the full size center bin. Here are my observations.
  1. The original poster's directions are fantastic. Disassembling interiors (especially on a brand new vehicle) is very intimidating. These instructions made it a very straight forward swap
  2. I have a 4WD. With a stubby phillips screwdriver it is not a problem to remove the screws that are under the center console.
  3. Post #13 shows where to install the micro-switch for console LED. Again, I would have never figured that out. I spliced into the console 12V adapter leads to power the LED. It worked fine.
One problem: closing the console lid does not trigger the micro-switch. The light stays on all the time. I put my iPhone in the console and shot video while closing the lid to confirm that the light stays on. The non-CD console lid must have a different configuration or there is another piece that mounts onto the micro-switch lever. The way it is now, there is no way for the console lid to trigger the switch. I have the switch unhooked for now until I figure this out.

If anyone has figured this out, let me know.

regards,
Willyswan

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Has anyone tried removing the CD player on an Australian Export model MY14 with the RA3 8.4A head unit? The dealer is telling me the whole head units shits itself if you disconnect the CD player?? Was going to have a try myself or take it to a car stereo installer.

Already got the full size bin ready to go.

Yes, Aus members have done it. Read through this thread for their details.

I've done it - a fault is logged behind the scenes on every startup but zero impact to us as drivers.

I ordered the exact same a month ago. Arrived promptly, except they provided the console to suit the CD player model. I did order with the correct part number.
They have ignored all 5 of my polite emails, so I did a PayPay claim. They ignored PayPal, so PayPal refunded all my payment today, including freight.
"We were able to recover $151.15 USD, and this amount has been credited to
you. Please allow 5 business days for this adjustment to be posted".
They also operate under "MoparPartsOverstock.com is operated by Lakeland Motors LLC., an authorized Chrysler Group dealer."
Why would a supplier ignore a customer?
So I can't recommend this USA dealer.
Cheers.

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Once the CD player is removed, is there a way to get the CD icon on the head unit to go away. I bought my 2014 and the CD player had already been removed by the 1st owner but it still shows up as a icon on my head unit. Not a big deal but I noticed when I was in a friends GC that never had a CD player, he doesn't have the icon.

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

Did the part number for this change to 68212885AA? Looks like this now applies to the JGC. I have a '14 JGC SRT and plan on doing this soon.

Re: My guide to replace CD player center bin with large bin

parts.com has it for $66
looks like 68212885AA is for grand cherokee, the other one listed is showing for durango which may be the same.

Is this bin any deeper compared to the one with the cd player ?
could a kind user measure the depth of the inside :-)
