How can I remove coins from my car's CD player?

My five-year-old unfortunately decided it would be a good idea to shove pennies into my car CD player. We’ve had a discussion about what does and does not go in the CD slot, but the pennies are still stuck in there! How do I get them out?

Kids can sure get creative with change! Luckily, if your kiddo is throwing pennies into the CD player, it’s easy to get them out:
  • Remove the car stereo by removing the trim and wiring harnesses
  • Aim the slot toward the ground and shake out loose coins
  • Use needle nose pliers or tweezers to carefully remove more coins
Keeping your CD player in working order can help you maintain the retail value of your car, as well as make sure you can keep playing your tunes the old-fashioned way. If you want to ensure that you have all the coverage you need for your vehicle, check out the app—we’ll get you customized quotes from top-of-the-line providers, so that all you need to do is choose the plan that works best for you at the best price point!
Best of luck with the repairs—and with keeping coins away from your stereo in the future!
