Replacing cassette holder with cd holder?

Hi, I have a Mercedes 190E and i've just bought a new cd player to replace the original cassette player. I was wondering if it's possible to replace the existing cassette holder with a similar cd holder.
Thanks

If you're talking about the sleeve which you insert before the actual unit, it is possible. You may have to take your dash out (I did). Because the existing hole is smooth there is nothing for the little tabs on the sleeve to grab onto like there is on most cars, so: Pull out the dash, Insert the sleeve, Get a couple of small screws (pan head, #6, about 1/4 inch long), drill a hole towards the back of the sleeve from the inside of the sleeve out (far enough to the back of the sleeve, or front of the car, so that you can still screw it in with a screwdriver) on the top and the bottom of the sleeve, Then screw in the screws! The factory opening has little ridges running lengthwise of the car, just make sure your screws are between those so that they will suck down and not interfere when you actually insert the head unit... Is that clear as mud?

This is what I did. The part number for the tape holder replacement: 201 683 00 91 If I remember correctly, It cost me around $25.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. Could you tell me where you can order the replacement part and do they deliver to the UK? I've checked the mercedes website but could not find any info referring to the 190 series.

Thanks
