My 2005 odyssey just burned up. :( Electrical fire under the hood, car will be a total loss.

I've got the car here at my house, and am pulling off all my racks and personal parts before it gets towed away for good. I have a few discs in the 6 disc cd changer (it's an EX-L with no nav/res, just the in dash 6 disc changer). One of the disc's is important, and hard to replace. (my cousin's sons band, which has since broken up and there are no more CD's available).

The electrical system is fried, is there any way to get discs out with no power to the radio?

worst case I guess I could call my cousin and have him burn me one off his copy, but if I can pop it out of the deck that would be the best.

Thanks for any help,
david.

Since the car is getting junked anyways, why don't you just take the CD changer out and take it apart??? I mean it's not like you have to worry about putting it back together. Just take it out and go at it with a hacksaw if you have to, but you can probably just start taking off screws. It's not like you even have to worry about anything... just get at your discs with whatever brute force method you see fit.

That deck comes out very, VERY easily! Here's a link to a youtube vid on just how easy it is:


This shows the non nav/res deck but it is pretty much the same to pull the deck out. Once you get to the unit, make sure to cut as much of the wiring to the deck as possible, then hook up power, memory wire and ground to a car battery then eject! Any decent car audio shop can do this for you if you just drop the deck off (with wiring attached) for a small fee.

Got a friend with a similar year Ody? Pull the head unit and temporarily hook it up in your friend's van to eject the CDs.
