Angry 03 ZX3 Stock Radio

I was wondering how easy it is to pull the stock CD player out of my ZX3. Last night my 2yo decided to fill the CD slot with coins and I need to pull it out for repair. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, that should do it. Are the "special tools" available at a Ford dealer?

i've heard that you can buy them at walmart and stores like that but I'm not sure. When I replaced my radio i made my own out of drop ceiling wire. but you can also use hangers if you find a thick metal one.
