That is a common problem with the disc changer in Mercedes-Benz vehicles. There really isn't any good way to remove the magazine with out damaging it. But, if you take the vehicle to a Mercedes-Benz dealership they can remove the disc changer for you and send it out for repair. When the unit comes back it will be working properly and will have your cd's in an envelope.

I had the same problem with my wife's 2000 C280 - removed the disk player from the trunk mount, manually returned the CD trays, turned the gear and the CD magazine popped out. Saved at least 'one arm and a leg' by not taking it to the dealer. Did I mention it works just fine and my wife loves me? :-)
