Becker Europa Cassette Bluetooth retrofit.

The deck that came in my car didn't have a working tape mechanism.

I loved the radio with the mechanical presets as well as the look of it. So I didn't wanna get the typical rice rocket headunit.

I decided that instead of trying to fix the tape deck, I would retrofit it with a Bluetooth audio module.

I retain the functionality of the original radio and dials, except the outermost buttons are used for switching between the module and the radio.

Now before I started this, I didn't realize that these decks might be somewhat sought after (after seeing eBay prices on these thigs...wow) and then I realized that what I did might be considered disgraceful. If I offended any of you, I apologize! I just wanted to make the deck suit my needs.

Also, if anyone wants the hollowed out tape deck mechanicals, let me know.

Not at all, it took a bit of patience to trim the digital receiver to fit. And some following traces and experimenting to figure out which points on the amp board were the inputs.
