Most of those CDs they sell are just a gimmick, nothing can replace a good hand cleaning with a cue-tip done by taking the whole thing apart. Take it to the local technician to get it cleaned properly first and foremost, or do it yourself if you feel safe enough taking all this apart and cleaning a tiny fragile little lens with a cue-tip and windex yourself. If a good hand cleaning like that does not work, then it means the reader head itself is defective and need to be replaced. If this is the case, don't bother. A cheap head will go for around 200$ usually and sometimes more, and at the price you get a new complete system it will be better buying a whole new sound system.

Try eBay, i've been looking for these on the internet, they sell kits (long and short variety), containing several pairs of different measures (about $7 per kit), and are supposed to fit various brands and models (including aiwa).
...a hint: a belt measure tells you the diameter of the circle formed by that belt
...another hint: old belts are loose, which means they are a bit longer than the new ones, so when you select the new belt from the kit, it should be a bit shorter than the one you removed from the deck (old belt - bigger circle, new belt - smaller circle).
I'm aware that not all aiwa models are the same, the one i was repairing a while ago had a double tape deck, each deck containing two belts, one long and one short, they were a bit tricky to change, but i didn't need to disassemble any of the mechanisms, i just had to remove both decks from the housing for easier access to the belts which required prior removal of the top cover and rear panel. After that it was some 4 to 6 screws and 4 connectors (just about half less in your case, i believe).
I can't tell what your unit looks like on the inside, but in my opinion aiwas are relatively easy to take apart, but then again, i could be wrong...
Hope this helps you get closer to a solution.
