Taking apart Powerbook 15"

My son put a quarter in the DVD drive of our 15" Powerbook. Needless to say, it's in there and needs surgery to get it back out. Is this something a reasonably computer-savvy person should be able to tackle themselves, or should I consider taking it in to get the quarter extracted?

You're in luck I am online on the forums right now.

Tried to hold mbp backwards, and hit it to get the quarter out?

if not

go to ifixit.com and look for guides on how to take apart your particular powerbook 15 incher.

or tell me your model and i'll look it up for oyu

Sorry, was running out the door right after I posted that. I'm gonna try to knock it out but I'll check that site for dismantling instructions. Thanks.
