Marantz CD 63 tray noise


Standard Member
Hello All,
As above, terrible noise from the tray when opening or closing. I've searched and found the problem (I think).
Anyone have info about getting the drive out.
I'm not bad DIY wise although I can usually get components out easier than back in :eek:

Make sure the power is'nt on take the lid off and push the cd tray out as far as it will go. Then looking from the front on the left hand side (i think) there is a catch which you will need to move with a flat head screwdriver whilst pulling the tray.

Thanks for the quick replies reddish75 and Mr Pig.
Took the tray out, took the drive belt off, faceplate off, small drop of WD40 under the drive wheels (clue provided by Mr Pig) and she sounds as sweet as when I bought her.
Bought a smile to my face I can tell you.
Thanks again,Top Blokes :thumbsup:
