    Clarion DX-425: You cannot pull the stuck CD straight out with pliers/tweezers because it sits on a plastic tray that has 2 plastic tips that keep it in place and blocks the entrance. First, press the DCP Release button to detach the face plate (Control Panel), then look inside the opening with torchlight and you can see 2 black vertical plastic tips that's between the CD and the slot opening. Solution: You have to use any tool to manually push down the 2 plastic tips (do one tip at a time) as you slide a thin cardboard/plastic in between the CD and the plastic tip to create a gap. The CD should be sitting on the cardboard now. Only then you can use tweezer to pull out the CD.

Depending on how its mounted/what type of car you have... detach the face plate and pop off the trip ring, then (if you still have them) the keys that came with the radio along either side of the radio and it should slide right out. if you don't have the "keys" 2 butter knives can do the job in a pinch.

How can I get a cd out of my car cd player if it is jammed


In most cases holding the eject button forces the player to eject it. If that wont work then check to see if you can see it in the slot and use a butter knife to assist it out. Other than that, take the whole unit out of the dash and take it apart.

CD stuck in the player in my Peugeot 206cc. When I press the eject it just "clicks" several times and stops


If nothing else you can take the cd player out of the dash and take the cd player apart. It might be a pain to uninstall the player but it sounds like you will have to replace the cd player anyway.

How do you get in to remove the stereo?


No don't take the whole dash apart there is usually a bunch of screws and you may have to take apart half of the dash.
There is usually some sort of plastic panel that must be removed than a bracket underneath it all to release the stereo sometime's for example fords have special lock key that you must use to remove it

CD Player won't eject of load CD


If it's not even yours yet, don't do anything to it. Ask whoever owns it what is wrong and if they will have it repaired before you buy it. If you were driving my car to see if you wanted to buy it and you started taking it apart, I'd have to beat you really well!!!

Two cd's stuck in player


Easy fix, just take apart your unit, it is very simple if you have taken anything apart before. Once you get the screws out of the casing and you take the top off the main thing will be taking the top off the cd drive. Hopefully you will not have bent arms from the jam on your cd drive like I did. Because now I have to either get a new drive or send it to Bose for a complete refurb which is only 100 dollars and for what they offer its a great price! I could fix it myself but I cant find the drive anywhere and Bose don't sale internal parts! Anyway once its taken apart remove cd's carefully and reasemble. Easy as that unless you encounter the same problem I did! Good Luck!

5 Other Users Have The Same Problem Comment by babba booey, posted on Jun 26, 2008before you spend $$ to have someone do anything, take the radio out of the dash yourself. what;s the worst thing that can happen, you break the radio that doesn;t work?

take the top of the radio apart and move the cd around... it's jammed and needed help to set up in the player.

put it back in the dash and push play. it should work. i just fixed mine and i am happier than paris hilton in a sausage factory.
