Default Aiwa AD-6800 Belts & Service Help

Hi All,

I have a lovely Aiwa AD-6800 tape deck that's sat for some time. It powers on and works but is in obvious need of a belt change and a service.

These days I have no idea how to go about finding someone with the skills to do this. My local AV repair shops are all long gone

Does anyone know of anyone ideally in the Bristol area (or anywhere within the UK) that takes on this sort of work?

I can't overstate how beautiful this machine is. I would happily travel (& pay) to ensure it get's a second lease of life. A couple of pictures are attached.


Thanks!
Max.

I had the AD-6500 with the motorized diagonal cassette cradle. It's pretty straightforward with replacing the main belt.
