How to Remove a CD Stuck in a Honda CR-V

If you own a Honda CR-V you may have experienced problems with the car's stereo system. One common issue involves the stereo's CD input. At times, CDs can get stuck in the CD drive and will not eject when you press the eject button. Fortunately, there is a method that you can use to manually eject CDs from your Honda CR-V's stereo system. With this technique, you will not have to take your car to a Honda dealership or other repair shop to get the problem fixed.

Insert your key into the Honda CR-V ignition. Turn the key halfway to access the car's accessory mode.

Press on the small eject button to the right of the CD slot on the stereo. Hold it down for two to three minutes.

Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to pull out the CD if it will not eject after pressing the button. Hold down the eject button as you lightly grab the edge of the stuck CD using the pliers. Wiggle the CD slightly up and down as you pull it out of the CD slot as gently as possible.


Avoid inserting CDs with thick labels, as these are more likely to get stuck in your CD player than CDs with standard labels.
