The plastic base may have become warped or the metal platter was not reinstalled correctly after belt replacement.

It should just lift off, but might be a little stiff.

SOURCE: Front grinding/rubbing sound when accelerating

if you slide under the truck and try moving the cv with your hands and there is any looseness in joint or noise the joint is indeed worn out, the cv joint if bad should not stop the truck from shifting into 4 wheel drive it could be stuck in 4wd and this would cause cv joints to break, if u have access to lift get all tires in air and try2 vs 4 drive and see if tires turn if not lift front tires off ground tires should turn freelyin 2wd, as u turn tires listen to wheel bearing and shaft noises for grinding clunking indicating bad parts, simple tricks that may help u find problems for cheap good luck!!

Your center pin is seized. You need to remove the three screws holding the center pin. Then remove the screw holding the shaft in place. Lubricate it with a light grease/oil and reassemble. I used spray lithium grease, but don't know if its correct.

I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.

I just had my L-A11 in to 'the needle doctor' (Jerry Raskin's shop in dinkytown, Minneapolis) We had the same problem with the platter.

After pulling (hard) to no effect on the platter - using the holes near the spindle and pushing simultaneously on the spindle. The tech next got out a small hammer, and while pulling on those same holes in the platter, he gave it a sharp 'whack' on the spindle with the hammer, and it came right off (the platter). I would have been too feint of heart to do it, but it worked great.

Lift off the rubber cover. On some turntables, you can pull the whole metal platter straight-up now. Put the belt on the outside of the bottom of the platter and drop platter back into the turntable base. Do NOT put the rubber cover back on yet. There should be one or two openings in the platter where you can see the pulley for the motor. Slowly rotate the turntable platter until the opening is over the top of the motor pulley. Now use a nail file to gently pull the rubber belt over the pulley. It should spin freely now. Now put the rubber cover back on and try it out. Belts are available from MCM Electronics and over online vendors. Let me know how it goes. Good luck my friend.

Belt fell off


There are two main types of phonograph turntable drives still being manufactured today, the belt-drive and direct-drive systems; the names are based upon the type of motor system found in each.
In a belt drive turntable the motor is located under and to the side of the platter and is connected to the platter by an elastomeric belt.
The design of the belt drive turntable allows the use of a less expensive motor than the direct-drive turntable. Also, the elastomeric belt absorbs motor vibrations which would otherwise be picked up by the stylus.

My drive belt came off i do not know how to put it back on please help! I have a Denon - Fully Automatic Turntable System - DP-29F It doesn't give me much help in the instructions on how to put it back on.


1. Remove the rubber disc from the metal platter.
2. Remove the metal platter by pulling straight up.
3. Ignore the player for the moment; focus on the platter.
4. On the underside of the platter is a circle about 2 inches smaller than the platter; stretch the belt around that inner circle. Make sure it is not twisted.
5. Put the platter back on the player. Rotate the platter so that one of the rectangular holes reveals the drive wheel.
6. Stretch the belt so that it goes around the drive wheel (I used a pencil but tweezers would likely work well).
7. Replace the rubber disc.

I can't get my Marantz 6025 turntable to turn? It has not been used for many years.


As you Marantz 6025 is a belt drive type turntable, the most possible problem is that the belt has been cut or destroyed. You can check it out before order a new one.
Here is the replacement procedure. Pull up the rubber mat, pull up the platter and find the belt. If the belt is removed from the platter, replace it with the glossy side outward. Pull the platter back at the original position. Turn until one of the 2 big openings come over the motor pulley. With your finger place the belt from the platter at the motor pulley. Pull the rubber mat back. You are ready. Here is a schematic for all the above:

Remove any tape from the belt

That is the drive belt for the turntable .
It's not that hard to set up. Take the mat off the platter and wrap the belt around the underneath -slightly-less-diameter portion.

With a pointed end needle or something like it , put the tip between the belt and the platter portion it's wrapped against.
Pull the belt away from that( keeping the rest of the belt on the platter portion) and set it over the motor pulley. This is usually a small diameter brass spindle unit

The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.

Drive belt routing


BASIC INSTALLATION: Most belts are easily replaceable. It involves removing the turntable platter (usually metal and they usually just pull straight up off of the spindle). The belt is placed around the inner lip of the platter. Platter is replaced onto spindle and then, through one of the holes in the platter, reach your fingers in, grab the belt from the inner lip of the platter, and stretch the belt around the capstan or motor shaft. You are done. Some turntables are a little more involved, but most are simple. Check yours out. I was helped by a nice gentleman on the e-bay auction.
