    cassette will not eject

    Just got an 89 three weeks ago and have been trouble shooting issues since (top latching of course, a/c recharge and now the cassette deck. Like the post below, it clicks and therefore have to change the belt (winter project). But before that, I would like to remove the cassette but it will not eject. Is there a trick here or just pry it open with a screwdriver and try not to crack the plastic cover?

    thanks in advance.

    you will need to remove the deck from the dash and disassemble it. trying to pry it out will just result in a damaged deck.

    edit: it appears this has a door like a home deck. I would remove the center stack (there are 2 screws in the vent on top, but I'm sure there are other screws elsewhere).
    there will be a mechanical latch to release the door somewhere (might have to trip it with a small screwdriver from the backside
