Anyone want a CD player for a 2014 Laredo?
 
So I've just swapped my CD player for the storage bin.

Are there any 2014 Laredo users who want a CD player?

First of all, let me state that I am not sure if this will work.
As far as I know, there has not been any Aussie Laredo owners that have upgraded to the CD player. I do not know if the wiring and connector will be present, there is - as they say - only one way to find out...

Initially I want to offer this to Melbourne Laredo owners, this is because: 1) I can assist with installation, there are a couple of tricky steps.
2) I want to swap the top tray and lid insert from your vehicle to mine ... the top tray will not fit with the cd player installed, and the lid insert is slightly different - most noticably the two catches instead of one and the little cut out which I guess allows a CD to be ejected whilst the lid is closed.

So you know what you are getting yourself into, please review this thread.

If anyone is interested, or there are any questions let ask here or send me a private message.

There is a dealer I believe in QLD that has Laredo’s with CD p[layers in them and told one member it was not possible to get it without (Laredo)

I saw your post saying you had it done. Where did you order Part# 68212884AA from, and how much was it delivered?

I was surprised to see you’re the third to do it and not hook up the light while it was all apart.
I can’t see anyone bothering to pull it apart again just to hook the LED up.

Factory Mopar Parts - OEM Auto Parts approx $85 + $45 shipping
(I got one quote from another place that wanted $150 for shipping alone!)

I just ran out of time to do the light, in actual fact it would not be that difficult to remove just the rear part and hook the light up into the rear USB port illumination circuit ... whether I actually get round to doing it is a another matter.

Was anyone interested in this?

Im told the Laredo console lid square hole is actually a slot for storing tissues! Seems a bit of imaginative sales talk.

That is correct, it's for tissues or cocaine.
My old falcon also had a specific spot for tissues.

I am going to order the Bin but need also the small top Bin/Tray, do you have the part number for this part?
May as well order both together.
Thanks.

Thanks, I can see the Bin but not the internal tray, or does it come with it?

Not 100% sure, but it appears to have the tray attached?

Or you could buy from here?

Search

Which I think was shown elsewhere in this thread?

Thanks, I guess the best option is to send them a message and ask the question.

I'm pretty sure that if it is part Part# 68212884AA it will not come with the tray thingy.

Note that, if you do get the tray thingy it looks like you will need a new bin lid insert too, look at the picture with 3 images on my origianl post, see the differences in the hinges between the lid from a cd player version and the laredo lid with the tray down, I don't think you will make the tray thing fit without some modifications or a new bin lid insert.

I really don't miss the CD player that I never used, and whilst the tray thing would be nice, I would suggest that you "don't hold back" and just get the bin and enjoy having a place to store your handbag/handgun/handkerchiefs.


PS, My CD player is still up for grabs if anyone wants to swap it for their bin/tray & lid assembly.
