Default G2 Integra Tape Deck Problem


After 12 years of superlative service the tape deck in my Integra has
pitched a hissy:

Upon inserting a tape, the drive mechanism cycles back and forth
between directions, eventually spitting the tape out after about five
or six tries.

....'Little help?

TIA
Mark

PS I'm selling this car soon and would prefer to repair rather than
replace this deck.

Sounds like, after 12 years, it probably needs a good cleaning.

I've been pretty rigorous about that, all along.

Everything in the tape path, or just the heads? Have you ever taken the unit
out of the dash, removed the covers and blown the dust out of it? Tape oxide
deposits on any surface it touches while it's moving.

Of course, with most of the tape transport being plastic, it's also possible
that it's just worn out after all that time.

Thanks.

Any idea how to get it out of the dash without major surgery?

Wish I did. I haven't seen a car in the past 20 years or so where the factory
stereo came out easily. Finding the shop manual for the car is probably your
best bet.

I had an 88 Accord LXi head unit that did that... (probably the same power
loading mechanism)... the stereo shop replaced the belts in it and it fixed
the problem.

Thanks, I was under the impression this had changed...

The tape belt is broken, that causes it to keep reversing between fwd & rev.
