Smile Alpine CD changer fixing solution

I've seen problems with this but couldn't find the answer to fixing it, so if someone wants to put this in a helpful place please do so.

My Alpine 6 CD changer managed to get a CD stuck in it. Pressing and holding the eject button didn't work and I didn't fancy the long nose pliers solution.
I undid the 2 screws holding the grey housing in place (mines under the passenger seat) and the housing slid forward. I then had to disconnect the electric cable - bit tricky and needed a lot of waggling. The housing then needed unscrewing to get the CD player out. Then came the fun bit - undoing the black housing on the actual player. Once this was removed you could see the offending CD. There is a drive wheel at the front of the player that needed moving slightly and you could hear the CD click to where it should be. I then plugged it back in to the electric cable and it ejected and then worked as normal.
I just then needed to refasten all the fixings and it's fine!
