Default Auxilliary input help

Hi, I'm new to the forums, and am in desperate need of help.
Fenrir is a 2007 PT Cruiser Base model, no bells and whistles. Bought her at 28,500 miles 2 years ago, currently 49900.
Anyway, My auxiliary input is screwed. The metal bit inside moves around, and i have to mess with whatever i plug in to make the sound come out of all channels. I believe there was a cap on the front that held everything in place, but it's no longer there. (Thanks babe!) Is there any way that i can fix this problem without buying a whole new dash setup? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I suggest you visit PT Forums and post that you're looking for a stock radio - I've seen several for sale from people who have upgraded.

Just picked up a new one from Radio Shack couple days ago but haven't installed it yet it was $1.95 I was hoping someone had done it and could tell me how to do it. If I figure it out I'll post it ASAP.

I have a 2006 base model ragtop and the aux. input broke when I accidentally bumped the plug that was sticking out of it. I took the stereo out (which was suprisingly easy) and removed the face plate and curcuit board (just unscrewed them) to reveal the back of the input plug. I proceeded to unsolder and remove the input plug and solder a wired 3.5mm male plug. you have to feed the wire in to the faceplate hole first before soldering to the circuit board. I can give you the correct TRS locations if you need them. I put a knot in the wire before soldering and adjusted it so that when the faceplate was reinstalled the knot would protect the delicate newly soldered wire from being pulled out through the front. The wire hangs there out the front which kinda sucks but I pluggwd my MP3 player in and mounted it to the dash with some velcro and it's working fine. It's good for now until I can afford to replace the stereo. The input plug is made very badly and breaks so easily. I would have just replaced the plug but I couldn't find one like it. Hope this helps.

Did you actually find a replacement auxiliary plug for your car? I just posted earlier about my auxiliary plug being loose and damaged. If this is true it gives me some hope that this might can be fixed..

Take it apart and look at it. Even if you need to replace it, your going to need to pull it apart first
