  • Your only option is to remove the radio and dissect it.

  • There is no reason for dh to be angry. Little children love to explore their world. This is how they learn so it's not the child's fault. Tell dad to put a safety plate on it to keep it from happening again. Do you have long tweezers? I would try that

  • My DH said you can take the player out of the car, take it apart and get the coins out that way.. Sounds like alot of work. Can you stick a nail file in there and try to scoop them out or grab them with tweezers? IDK, just some ideas..

  • Can it be popped out and shaken like a piggy bank?

  • ok thanks everyone :) I did get a few out earlier today but when I was getting them out I think I made some go even further back. I have twizzers but they weren't long enough... maybe a nail filer or butterknife?

  • I don't think there's a face plate or anything like that. the CD player came with the van.

  • Try one of those thin metal nail files if you have one. It's thinner than tweezers and might just do the trick.
