CD Stuck in Stereo Sign In

I have a 2013 Subaru Impreza hatchback. A few months ago I was listening to a cd when it suddenly stopped and then would not eject. I turned to Youtube in hopes of finding a way to get it out, but no luck. I've also asked 2 mechanics and they said no way would they be able to do it.
I'm hoping one of you will have a brilliant way for me to get this cd out, preferably without damaging it as it is a library CD.

Here's what I've tried:
Disconnected battery for 30+ min
nudged the cd with another cd
used a knife wrapped in tape to try to "grab" it
used a gift card wrapped in tape to try to "grab" it.

Any other ideas?

None of that stuff is going to work and forcing anything may cause fatal damage.

The radio has to be removed and disassembled. Something is jamming it and all you can do yourself is break whatever part is jammed. It has to be carefully taken apart to release whatever is jammed.
