Default Repair AIWA SD-L22 Micro cassette deck (1980) CAMBRIDGE (will travel)

I have an AIWA micro system from around 1980 which I bought recently from the original purchaser - it's the high quality system 22 that Aiwa produced in the late 70's consisting of separate pre-amp, power-amp, tuner, and cassette deck. It's all in pristine condition and everything works except the tape deck. It powers up but won't play, rewind etc. Having taken the case off, the innards look A1, but I'm sure all the belts have perished and will need changing. Even though I have the service manual, the whole mechanism has to be removed to get to the belts which is beyond my competence, so I'd prefer to have it repaired by a pro. I live near Cambridge so is there anyone locally or within an hours drive or so that could help?
Many thanks
