So I put a cassette tape in the factory headunit of my 98 to listen to the old Ipod and when I go to take it out I realized I wasnt sure which button to push.
I assume the button with the two triangles is the eject button.

Anyway I cant get it out. You can hear the motor go like it is trying to eject but it wont come out.

Any ideas? I already tried "Helping" it out with th knife, no luck.

Looks like it's time for a new deck. Double din [up]

Is that how its really done or is that a trick?

I was thinking double DIN, my brother has a Alpine touch screen sitting in his room.

Im guessing that one of hte screws on the cassete came out. Mine gets stuck all the time so i normally just push the side of it down so it will come out

No we already figured out that he just didn't know how to eject it.

I have a tape stuck in my factory head unit as well. It's been stuck there since the previous owner of the car. I know how to eject it, but it just won't come out. Is the a trick to getting it out without breaking the tape deck?

Its already broke if tapes are getting stuck in it.
