Default Help please!

My wife broke the 3.5mm plug off in the AUX input on my ram. I have tried 2 small screwdrivers like tweezers but no luck. Any one have this problem before or have any ideas?

Take a coat hanger or piece of wire, use a small brush or Q tip and put a dab of crazy glue or JB weld on it and see if you can pull it out that way, or, yank the dash and replace the input from the back

need to get some crazy glue. If that does not work I will have to pull the radio. Th AUX is in the radio itself.

What about a small screw/bolt extractor? Or grind a nail down so it is like an ice pick and try that. Gently tap them in to form a wedge, pull out.

Vacuum with a screen over the hose. Or a blast of air sometimes works.
