My radio has a cd button, but I do not see a cd insert spot and can not find it in the car. Where do I look ?

Hello, thank you for writing in. To begin, we need to know if you still have the stock radio that came with the car, or if it an aftermarket upgrade or replacement. The stock radio will have a CD slot above the buttons. Its a small black line, but it is there. Aftermarket radios can vary greatly, and some even have external CD players that hold multiple discs at once. These are typically located under a seat or in the trunk somewhere. If your deck, or radio faceplate, does not have a CD slot, an external CD player is likely what you are working with. Good luck!
