Stuck cd

I put a CD in the CD player on my 1995 98 Olds and not only will it not play, but it is stuck inside there. Any help would be appreciated! Tried pushing eject but no good.

Hopefully someone will have an easy solution for you, ROBBYT3, but the only way I have ever gotten a stuck CD out was to remove the player and dismantle it. Drastic, but comparatively easy compared to some the stuff I have done.

Mine has a CD player behind the faceplate (which hinges down to put in a CD). Mine has that tiny hole you see on CD players on PCs, where if you unfold a paper clip, stick it in that hole and give it a solid push, the CD comes out a bit. I have never had to use the one in my car, but have had to do it numerous times on PCs! It's worth a shot to see if your car has one of those. If not, polarzak is probably right, you will need to remove the unit, take it apart, gingerly remove the CD.

Hmmm, I'm wondering if any of these ideas might work on an 8-track.

I have used two butter knives using them as makeshift tweezers, gently stuck them in the CD holder, forced them together to grab the CD and gently pulled the CD out.
