Welcome aboard.
Has the CD changer ever worked?
If no it may be disconected at the back of the radio, or at the cd changer itself.

Welcome from Michigan via Richardson Texas...... The Player in the trunk is most likely for the Nav system and typically, the CD Player is located in the Glove Box (for R171's)......

Enjoy your new car!

I acquired my 2000 model year SLK in April. It had the nice Bose stereo option, but the only thing that worked was the FM-AM radio. There was no CD changer in my car ... I guess the option was never installed.

Rather than try to have the Mercedes unit repaired, my solution was to replace the head with a JVC unit. An adapter kit provides the interface to drive the Bose power amp and speakers. The shop I had do the installation were familiar with the setup and did a good job of the installation, cost me about $500 all up. Sounds great and with a little fiddling of the front panel controls for illumination, etc, it's unobtrusive and easy to use.

Going to a modern head unit added streaming Bluetooth connection and front panel jack-ins for iPhone, MP3 music players, USB2 flash drives, etc. Well worth it.
