Re: Alpine 7998 self service question
United Radio Alpine's 5 Star Service Center is right in Syracuse, NY and they will go through and fix, test, and grease that unit for $85 flat rate which is certainly worth it because it is better than any of Alpine's current offerings. You get a 90 day warranty to boot. I had mine done about a year and a half ago even though it was working fine.
The gears and mechanism are delicate so it takes electro-mechanical repair skills and not left to some joe off the street to get it right. If you feel ballsy order the parts you think you need from www.pacparts.com and try the fix yourself.

Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.
