If you have let the wire rope of the mechanism jump off the drive wheel when changing the belts for the CD drawer on one of these models and you have painstakingly pulled it back on again after some time, then you may have thought how important it is to follow a manual. That happened to me the first time - that's why this manual exists. And the new 4 belt set blue-belt is there because I no longer wanted to have to change these belts every few months.

The geometry and material composition have been optimized, the set consists of 4 belts with each different dimensions. Compared to common butyl belts, blue-belt provide slip-free power transmission, dramatically longer shape stability and durability.
Only a few tools are needed for the installation.

Marantz CD94
Turn the white drive wheel on the right to the rear to raise the CD tray.

Marantz CD94
The entire CD tray can now be pushed out to the front by hand.

Marantz CD94
Loosen the holder with the limit switches using the Phillips screwdriver and place it to the rear.

Marantz CD94
Push the snap ring in front of the drive wheel outward with the small slotted screwdriver. You can safely push the snap ring in the direction of a magnet so that it does not jump away and get lost. Otherwise, you should avoid jumping away by hand.

Marantz CD94
The drive wheel can now be removed together with the first belt on the right side. The second smaller belt is now freely accessible.

Marantz CD94
The small new belt can now be inserted. First place the belt on the larger wheel by hand, then use the small slotted screwdriver to pull the belt onto the smaller wheel.

Marantz CD94
First place the larger belt around the smaller wheel. Then insert the loose drive wheel into the belt and push it onto the shaft only a small distance at first.

Marantz CD94
Before the drive wheel is pushed all the way onto the shaft, the front steel axle must be lifted slightly so that the smaller pin on the back of the drive wheel fits in its raceway.

Marantz CD94
The snap ring for securing the drive wheel can then be inserted with the needle-nose pliers.

Marantz CD94
After the holder with the limit switches is reattached, you can now turn to the other side with its two belts.

Marantz CD94
Without mains connection, actuate the power switch on the operating front. Then release the black extension to the operating front from the power switch. Gently pressing it forward with holding the switch itself backwards.

Marantz CD94
The extension can then be pulled diagonally back out of the operating front, revealing the remaining two belts.

Marantz CD94
Remove the front larger belt from the smaller wheel and move it to the side to replace the smaller belt first.

Marantz CD94
As before on the other side, first place the small belt on the larger wheel by hand, then tension it on the smaller wheel with the slotted screwdriver.

Marantz CD94
To insert the spacer for the drive wheels, push the wire rope aside with the flat-blade screwdriver to make room.

Marantz CD94
First insert the spacer into the right front drive wheel, then arch the spacer and insert it into the rear drive wheel. Only then loosen the snap ring on the rear drive wheel with the slotted screwdriver.

Marantz CD94
The rear drive wheel can now be pulled off the shaft with the wire rope in order to remove the old belt through the gap between the shaft and the drive wheel and insert the new one.

If necessary, the drive wheel can also be pulled off without spacers. However, there is a greater risk that the wire rope will jump off, resulting in considerable additional work. Without spacer, keep the wire rope under constant tension by hand when removing the drive wheel!

Marantz CD94
Now secure the drive wheel again with the snap ring.

Marantz CD94
The spacer can now be removed again with the needle-nose pliers.

Marantz CD94
Now the last belt can be put on. Mount the extension for the power switch in reverse order.

Marantz CD94
When the right drive wheel is turned all the way back, as it was initially, the CD tray can now be pushed in with gentle pressure.

Finally, the linear rails on the left and right can be cleaned with alcohol or benzine. Apply a micro-drop of sintered bearing oil from our dosing needle bottle to each rail - since the sintered bearing oil has an enormous creeping capacity, do not apply more than a micro-drop. Do not use mineral oils or adhesive lubricants, they will immediately increase the sliding resistance.
