I wonder if you were ever able to resolve your problem... I have a2000 ML 320 witht he same Bose issue... I get an error msg: TAPE TOO TIGHT... It won't even play and I get that same clicking sound when I try to eject... When I first purchased vehicle (used in 2002) I had the problem and the dealership assured me that they replaced the stereo with a new one...I never really tired it again until more than a year later and the same thing happened... Of course I was out of warranty at that time and I can't help, but to wonder if they really ever changed the stereo, or if they just removed the cassette.... If any has the solution, please contact me via email: email@example.com

Generally when a cassette gets stuck the take-up spindle is not doing its job and the tape wraps around the capstan with a gradual increase of the audio pitch. No easy way to get it out with the tape intact without removing the player and opening it up and carefully winding the capstan backwards until it comes free. The real problem is the take-up spindle belt is probably stretched and slips meaning this will likely happen again unless the belt is replaced. Google cassette belts for parts suppliers.
This is a faulty firmware problem in the player. It may have a faulty internal capacitor that is screwing up the player. You can use a capacitor tester to find faulty capacitor or replace with a cd player
your cassette seems to be jammed, try removing the player open it which should reveal the trapped cassette then try to carefully remove the tape as it may have got stuck around the capstans(rubber bits) sometimes when tapes haveen't been played for a long time they tend to become loose, try to ensure that the tape is tight by using a pencil inserted into the spool and turn it until the tape tightens please take care not to over tighten. good luk
It wasn't a car cd player, but a component for a stereo. I took off the case and shook the player until the disc dropped out. We plan to replace the player, so no further help is needed. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.
I have had this same problem too. I fixed it by taking the tape transport out of it and removing both capstans with their flywheels and oiling the capstans. However this only fixed the problem for a few months. Maybe you need to more a most soild oil since i used just regular motor oil.
there is a problem in the tape drive - possibly a bad belt- thats why the cassette adapter keeps ejecting itself- most add on xm tuners have the ability to broadcast its signal wirelessly-you press the menu button then turn the tuner to select the menu option that you want then press on the tuner control again to choose broadcast (fm signal and which channel you want to broadcast to the factory radio-try www.xmradio.com for more detailed info
