I have exactly the same situation. I too just bought a '98 Mk VIII with no remote CD changer although it has the installed JBL radio for one, and would apprecite an advice as to installing the changer.

one of two things have happened.

either the original radio was replaced with another one somewhere along the lines, and the car never came with a CD changer

or

the trunk mounted CD changer has been removed. If the car came with a CD changer, you need to check the driver's side rear corner of the trunk. Lift up the carpet and look for the harness.

The ON/OFF buttons on these radios are a commonly failing part(they wont turn off the radio when depressed) so many past owners replaced them since all 1995-1998 stereos are a direct plug and play. However, if your car never came with a CD changer in the trunk, then the CD option on your head unit is useless.
