CD cassette 95 E320

The six-CD cassette in the trunk of my 95 E320 has faulted again. I'm tired of dealing with it every time it faults. Is there any drop-in replacement for the unit? What are my options?

I did it on my 71 Cutlass. I remember having to prime some of the surfaces with a black primer. The glass still holds 25 years after the repair.

There's disagreement in our family on whether to leave the refrigerator plugged or unplugged when our Florida condo is unused for a couple months or more. What are your thoughts?
