I took my car to halfords to have my stereo fitted (also bought stereo from Halfords). they basically had to taken everything out of the middle bit to get to the stereo (All the air vents and control switches etc). It took about an hour to do, but at least you know there is no quick way to steal the radio once it is in. I think it helped that I managed to get a guy that had once been a macanic so he knew what he was doing.
Hope this helps

sometime you can get luck by taking out the tape player and there will be a small hole somewhere on the player that you can stick a paper clip through to release the tape player. Otherwise gnetly stick a screwdriver under the tape to see if you can get it to release. no guarntees on that last one

Get a cd disc with a built in head cleaner and run it through the cd unit. It may work for you. If not it will have to be removed and serviced at a dealer

I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.
Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.
