Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
I have a 1992 Chevy Lumina 3.1 with a cassette player I use to play my iPod through an adapter. When I push the adapter into the player it seems to be stuck in the reverse position although the reverse button is not pressed. What's up here?
Not sure here but i think you may have a rubber band broke on the mechanism inside the player,my sunday car the jag ! has a cd in the boot and a tape player inside the car and i do not bother with the CD player but i plug my fancy phone in as it will play from the SD card in the phone ,real fancy like as blank CDs are not cheap anymore and the time delay of the CD changing so i play my house music and wigan pier throught he phone.Swinging grandad my grandaughter calls me ? but if you remove the player then yes its possible to fit new bands but they are a special rubber and you cannot use a domestic rubber band but how about buying one of them players that use a radio transmitter ,plug into ciggy lighter and tune a radio preselect in to the player ,simple but word of warning here make sure the radio aerial is down or unscrewed depending on type on your car as nothing worse than my bouncy tunes coming through with a background noise from a local FM station on the same frequency if the aerial is up but it comes up when i turn radio on hence i went back to the blank tape thingy you have here ,no interferance .How do get away with such a old car ,here in spain they are taking them off the road with a minium amount from the goverment against a new car ,and dont ask about the yearly mechanical inspections ?? still i make a living doing the repairs so i cannot complain i suppose .

Testimonial: "Thanks, I'm in no mind to go opening up the cassette player after changing starter today and I've had half a mind to get a new radio anyway. For now I will go with the cigarette lighter to iPod idea. As far as having such an aged car- in America there are much more lenient laws as far as fuel economy and the like compared to Spain and most of Europe (if not all). There is incentives, however, to decommission your "clunker" and buy or lease a new car. Alas, with the majority of the US population being so conservative there would be a lot of angry people about if the government issued a ban on cars of "a certain age". Gracias y tenga un buen dia! (I'm almost certain that means 'have a good day')"

The post above mine, the member is correct regarding a new cd player, a cassette adapter will play only so good no matter what you add to your existing system, try a cd changer,not expensive at all and you can add it simply without compermising too much quality.

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.
