Take the adptor apart, lube the gears and put them back. Test by using your finger to turn the two "holes" on the tape in both direction and see if it works. If they do, then you are probably good to go. When you insert the tape, you can gently apply some pressure downward to the tape if you have space to do so. It works tat way for my 1988 toyota camry with stock stereo. Good luck!

I have the same problem with my tape adapter, I have found that a radio tuner adapter is the way to go. but if you insist on using the tape make sure if you stick your finger in one sprocket hole that the other sprocket turns too, and if it is a little difficult to turn, chuck it and get you a new one.

HOW DO I FIX THIS MY CASSETTE PLAYER OUT OF NO WHERE STARTED MAKING A CLICKING NOISE AND WILL EJECT THE ADAPTER OUT .


First, nobody has used the Cassette Adapters since Milli Vanilli got caught Lip-Synching and Mike Tyson got knocked out by Buster Douglas. U can buy a new radio on ebay for under $30 that has what is now called an "Auxiliary" cord or "Aux" cord.

Second, if u are set on keeping that stone-age paper weight u call a radio (I had one of these too, up 'till 2 yrs ago), try to play an actual cassette tape. See if it gives u the same results that the adapter gave u. If it does then the problem is in the radio and it might cost more to fix than it's worth. If it doesn't give u the same results, then try to find what is referred to as a "cassette deck cleaner kit." After u follow the directions on the kit try the adapter again. If the issue continues, then try a new adapter. By this point u are probably going to be 1/2 way to the $30 it cost for a new radio. Short of that, there isn't much else u can do unless u want to open up the radio but again, not worth the trouble.
Good luck.

I want to connect an mp3 player but i only have a cd player, is there a line-in jack somewhere in the car or behind the stereo


No jack on factory stereo. You'll have to use either a cassette adapter or an FM adapter; both plug into your regular mp3 line out. Cassette adapters are not as reliable but cheap and don't use power, while FM adapter requires power (from 12V or battery) and is more expensive.

1995 Saab 900S Left speaker doesn't work when using tape player


sounds like the cassette adapter has a bad channel, or didn't fully seat into place. Try removing and re inserting, to play the other side of the adapter if the wires will allow it. Then auto reverse the cassette deck to allow a different portion of the cassette head to be used for the signal. Those cassette adapters are poor quality, and put alot of time on the mech.

The tape player is probably broke. There may have been pop spilled in there and got it all sticky inside. Use a maglite and look inside the tape player for this or bad dust etc. You will have to replace the player, and you might as well get a cd player since it will not cost you a ton these days. You can use an mp3 player or ipod today, but if you want to use cd's, then install a cd player. You should be able to do this pretty cheap now, maybe $40-60 bucks or so.
