Trying to rebuild the tape player from an '04 Sable. All 6 ICPs I've owned, both tape and CD have had issues.
This one just needs cleaned and lubed.
But I can't for the death of me figure out how to take it apart.

And I'd like to know what kinda grease I should use.

This https://www.taurusclub.com/forum/117-electronics-security-audio-visual/296193-adding-aux-front-w-o-interface.html covers it pretty well. Pretty simple if you have Torx.

For lubricating tape deck parts, I'd use either a synthetic grease like Super Lube, or silicone-based grease, as there's potential it could contact rubber or plastic in the mechanisms and both of those are safe on those materials. Anything that says it's safe for metal and plastics is probably fine. I'd do a good wipe of any of the existing grease first, just to clear dust/debris and avoid any potential interactions if the greases are different types.
