Yup. Pull the radio out and remove the top cover. You should be able to get the CD out without damage. Then clean the mechanism. These things will fill up with fuzz over years of use, and also dirt and crud on the CDs. The detritus will clog up the lubricated (or not) moving parts. Also, the lube can dry out and/or turn to sludge. Clean it off where needed and re-lube. YouTube will have videos on how to do this and what lube and tools you need. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, there is probably a local shop that you can take it to. Much cheaper than replacing the unit.

Good info, thanks.
