 Harbor Freight is your friend.  Stop by the Muskegon HF and pick up a $5 set 
of picks.  You should be able to get one of the angled picks into the pin hole. 
 I have a set on the boat if you want to come down to Whitehall this weekend.

  One of my crew decided to help out by changing out a bent ring on the pin 
holding the jib car in place on the track.  Unfortunately, he forgot to  move 
the car away from the hole and the spring retracted the pin down into the hole 
once the ring was off.   The  top of the pin is now flush with the top of the 
car.  Fortunately, the car is in a commonly used place, but at some point I 
would like to be able to move it again.  Anybody dealt with this situation 
before?   This is our 30-2 with Merriman jib cars that I believe were standard 
on these boats.  Thanks for any suggestions!

The car is most likely not special and easily replaced.  If push comes to shove 
an angle grinder will make short work of the car and allow for removal.
Short of destroying the car I would attempt to slip a thin dental pick down the 
slot between the pin and the car.  Try to catch the hole in the pin for the 
ring.  Maybe, maybe not.  If it is a tight interface then probably not.  You 
could also try drilling and tapping the pin so that you can put a small machine

may try to spin as the drill bit or tap begins to bite.  To help prevent this

Re: Stus-List Merriman Car stuck

I had to extract a pin from a car couple years ago.  Fortunately for me, it
was one of the ones with a knurled knob so the pin was large enough to
drill and tap for a small machine screw.

Your split ring pin is much smaller.  Barring successful extraction with a
dental or tool pick as suggested by Josh, consider soldering a wire to the
top of the pin.  Bend it in a small U shape so you can pull both ends.

The car is most likely not special and easily replaced.  If push comes to
shove an angle grinder will make short work of the car and allow for
removal.

Short of destroying the car I would attempt to slip a thin dental pick down
the slot between the pin and the car.  Try to catch the hole in the pin for
the ring.  Maybe, maybe not.  If it is a tight interface then probably
not.  You could also try drilling and tapping the pin so that you can put a
small machine screw in it and then use pliers to pull the pin out.  I
imagine that the pin may try to spin as the drill bit or tap begins to
bite.  To help prevent this attach a line to the car so as to side load it
and put pressure on the pin against the track hole.
