Grundig CD Changer Cable

Modification Details

Making Your Own CD Changer Cable

Getting a compatible CD Changer for the Grundig stereo is fairly easy as it's the same model used in many Fiats and
Lamborghinis. Just do a search for MCD36 for the 6 disc changer. The MCD10 10 disc changer should also work
although you are a bit more limited by the way you select the discs due to the number of buttons on the stereo.

The problem is getting a CD Changer cable. Sure, you can buy them online (search eBay for Grundig CD changer
cable) but generally they are expensive and way too long at over 5 metres. The actual smart cable is only 2m long.

So, why not make one? The parts are readily available and cheap.

Parts Required

You'll need:
1x blue mini ISO plug
8x micro timer terminals
2 metres of 8 wire cable
8 pin DIN plug (270 degree)

On the left is the 270 degree 8 pin DIN connector. Notice that the outside pins are in a circular pattern (C type).
You DON'T want the alternative on the right which is the 262 degree 8 pin DIN connector (U type).
