Default 2000 Mercury Sable CD changer?

Hey guys, I just got my first car, it's a 2000 Mercury Sable LS, and the previous owner mentioned that the car had no CD player, but had an area for one. After searching the entire car, I have yet to find anything that even resembles a CD changer/player. Any idea where this thing is?
Thanks for any help.

You have to take out the unit with the cassette player, the new cd unit goes there instead of the cassette.

I would think that, but there is already a CD button on the unit, I've heard that the changer is somewhere in the back, or the center console, but the only place that looks like anything could fit would be right next to the cig lighter.

And this is exactly what I have:

A cd-changer is sometimes in the trunk.

I looked everywhere, still nothing. If I wanted to install a CD changer, would I have to rig it up myself in the trunk or something?

Yeah, if you want an actual multi-cd changer. If you just want a plain ole' cd player, that'd be easier.

Either would suffice. I remember my father had a 96' Taurus he installed a CD changer in, I'll probably end up asking him how to do it.

Same with me.
I have the cassette option and that's such dead giveaway as to how old the car is.
Do you have a cassette player? The whole interface (where the radio and cassette is) is a round-oval shape. My father took it to the mechanics and they told him it might be hard to install a CD player because it would look out of place.

The original oval design would be ruined or something.
