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.

Re: cassette will not eject
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
