if it's an alpine unit, you may have to pry it out. carefully do this using two slotted screw drivers. your gonna feel at one point when it feels like its gonna come out, but then it'll go back in because you lost the grip. when you get to this point, pull harder. it'll eject out.

now look inside the cd changer. you may see that there is a cd still in there. you will need some needle nose pliers to get this out.

i fixed two alpine changers this way. one was a bmw alpine unit, and the other was a honda alpine unit.

disclaimer: proceed at your own risk! just because this has worked for me, it may not work for you.
