I broke the tip off of my 1/8 audio jack and now it's stuck in my radio. Any tips on gettin it out?
That sucks,

Looking at my stock radio, if its broke off flush, you may be able to pull the radio, remove the back of the radio cover and use a small pointed pic from the back side of the jack plug and push/work it out.

Sadly I've done this more than once, I keep a few pair of tweezerman tweezers on my trucks for SOB splinters. These work great. Once when one snapped about flush, crazy glue gel did the trick, pulled it enough to grab it.

That sucks balls. Hasn't happened to me yet so I've got no idea how to help ya.
There has to be a way to take apart the head unit and fish it out.

Back side of the jack is not open

A microscopic dab of quick dry epoxy on the tip of something long enough to fit in the jack and touch the broken piece. Like the flat end of a drill bit. The only worry would be any seeping and you would end up bonding whatever you used to pull the piece out with inside the jack.

I broke my jack

In my business we have those jacks break all the time. What we find is if you have a strong magnet it will sometimes pull it out far enough to get it with a needle nose pliars.
