CD stuck in CD player

If you hit the eject button and you only hear a clicking sound there might be a small problem with the ejecting mechanism.

Remove the display of the ACC, slide forward the EHU and disconnect the CD player. Remove the CD player (you can have a look in this instruction)


Remove the two screws from the top cover.
Remove the screw from the backside.
Remove the screws on both sides from the faceplate..

Release the clips and remove the faceplate..
Remove the top cover of the CD player..
Remove the 4 screws holding the CD mechanism ( 2 frontside, 2 top side)
Remove the mechanism from the housing. Take care not to damage the ribbon cable.
Next to the gears there is a small screw. This screw is holding the gearbox. The picture does not show this very well but you will find a broken piece of plastic of the top cover of the gearbox. 
Remove the screw and the broken part..
Prepare a thin metall piece (f.e. from a tinned can) and drill a small hole in it. Bend it 90 degrees as in the example at the left side.
Fix the metall strip with the original screw. Add some 2 component glue and bend the strip over the top of the gearbox. Take care, it might be nescessary to line up the gears before fixing the metall strip.
Reassemble the CD player in reverse order and put it back in the car.
