* Take a pair of needle nose pliers and a small flat head screwdriver. Put the screwdriver under the bottom and pull upon the tape with the pliers and pull it out. * TRY HOLDING DOWN BOTH REW & FF @ SAME TIME, OR HOLD EJECT WHILE USING PLYERS & SCREWDRIVER, (tape is prob destroyed & player will only eat more tapes U may want to think about replacement). * Had the same problem with both my 1997 and 1998 LeSabre. You must remove the radio from the dash first. Then remove the outside of case to get down to the tape. Then you can lift out with a small screwdriver, but watch out for the side rails that guide the tape in and out. Once I got my favorite Willie Nelson tape out, I never used the tape player again.

Most of the time you will need to break the tape.

le cassette = the cassette / the tape / the cassette tape

No difference - a cassette contains magnetic tape.

You are probably going to have to remove the radio and take the top off to gain access to the tape. It has probably broken and the tape is fouled.
