    Well if its like locked in place and you forcibly yank it out, the friction may damage the contacts, but it most likely won't happen (the contacts get scratched anyway)

    It depends whats wrong.. Sounds like the spring mechanism isn't loading, but the slot still makes the micro SD fit very snugly. You can try open it up and see where this friction is occurring.

    Most likely the spring is dead, because its not pushing out your micro sd anymore.

    check the inside, see if the spring came loose or soemthing

    I made a nice guide to it on another forum... should I copy and paste and provide no name for said other site, or can I just post a link?

    I don't see a problem linking to a site unless if it breaks the rules.
