    Press the eject button a few times. Even though this sounds like an obvious way of removing a cassette, it is sometimes the solution. Sometimes the build-up of tension can pop the tape back out.

  2. 2

    Turn off your car's ignition. Use a flathead screwdriver to lift the tape up and out of the radio. Try pressing the eject button at the same time as you are removing it.

  3. 3

    Grip the cassette tape with needle-nose pliers. Once you have a good grip, try pulling out the cassette tape. Press the eject button a few times while you are trying to take the tape out.
