Hello and welcome to justanswer.com,

there are two options here: remove the audio unit and carefully partially disassemble the unit and try to push the cd out through the slot. I have been moderately successful get the old cd out, but usually it is damaged so don't have high hopes of getting the cd back damage free. i can upload instructions to remove the radio and describe how to disassemble it.

if you don't feel comfortable doing this then you can pull the audio unit and find a local radio repair shop that would be willing to take it apart and get the stuck cd out.

Please do not rate my service until we are completely done and you can rate my service good or better. Thanks

I need instructions on how to remove the unit & disassemble.can u send me a drawing?.

Expert:  HONDASERVICE7791 replied 3 years ago.

here is the link to removing the audio unit click here

 

let me know if you have any other questions

 

as I stated there are no instructions for disassembly because Honda does not want you to disassemble the unit.When you have the unit out i can walk you through the process but it is best if you have the unit out and in front of you.
