Its very possible a knob may have been bumped as a tech was getting in/out of vehicle, but fact of the matter is, this is a he said/she said kind of case. and these stock radios are junk to begin with.i highly doubt anyone would go to the effort of removing/replacing a stock radio. they just simply aren't worth anyone's time or effort. techs often -mistakenly or not- get blamed for incidental damage and when accused, it gets their dander up. you're not going to get anywhere with this one. my advice? buck up and buy a good radio if you plan on keeping the vehicle. www.crutchfields.com is a good place to shop. they often provide free shipping and always include installation hardware and needed electrical adapters and instructions. great place and great service from my experience.

Tape cassette player doesn't play cassettes


Sounds like the little rubber band that drives the pinch roller has broken and/or jumped off its pulleys. Simple fix, but you will have to take it out and take the upper cover off to get to it.

Your "tape" is a cassette adapter. It is designed to be inserted in one of two ways depending upon whether your radio loads cassettes the long way or the short way...BUT you have to insert the wire into the appropriate slot of the adapter so it will not bind as it is inserted into the radio. You can actually damage the wire if you do not do this. Your problem may be caused by interference between the wire and the player mmechanism, causing it to eject

You will probably have a problem finding any parts for this tape player, you can remove it and have it fixed if you can find someone that still fixes these. My advice is to either get a new stereo with cassette player or find a used one on ebay.

probably the belt for the pullys inside are worn, if you can get replacement ones they are easy to fit, just open the case and slip the old one off and new one on.(may have to remove an internal cover also)

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


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.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

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.
