    Exactly! I did put the screws in correct, using the correct part, and everything works great! Really happy with it so far. Thanks for the help too, appreciate it.

    My trick:I rebuild the whole mechanics as a module for revision.
    So I can make the exchange so easy. Just need a screwdriver. In addition service stuff.
    Applicable: WM-DD,-DD2,-DD3,-DD30,-DD33,-DC2 and DD100

    Yes, I also have this DC2.
    I had to change at that time the center gear and the IC CX20084.Since since he works faultlessly.

    IC CX20084 is IC for motor control.
    This is also found in WM-DD2, DD3, D3 etc. As well as in the D6C.

    Just put in a new gear in my DD33! The new gear is absolutely spot on, and now I know what it feels like to own a "perfect" DD!
    The previous owner of my DD33 (bought for parts on ebay) had the center gear repaired via the addition of teeth and epoxy. It was actually a decent repair and I never had any problems with it.

    It was a little painful to break apart the previous owner's repair, but the potential for lower wow/flutter from the new gear is too enticing to pass up!

    This was a relatively simple repair and the guide is excellent! I will add a note about the head slider however. It needs to be replaced with the notch covering the autostop prevention lever for FF/REW, or autostop will prevent FF/REW from working correctly.

    Wow, I ordered the new gear last sunday and received it this morning! Thats extremely fast. Thank you Marian.

    By the way, I am a new member of this site/forum (as the the active members probably will have noted immediately...)
    I own a WM-D3 and have been seaching for years for a decent solution of this center gear problem. Last week I was watching a Youtube video from Techmoan which linked to this forum. Marian's solution made a very reliable impression, so I diceded to give it a go.

    I'll keep you guys posted about the repair.

    I have been working on my DD30 today. I have a couple of questions please:
    Should all 4 transport buttons have a clear plastic ring at their bases ? Or only FF and RW?
    How easy to see is the ring for wow and flutter that sits in coil/capstan gear? I cannot see it. (I am worried I have lost it)
    Does the orange cable connect to the battery flat connector nearest to the edge/side of the Walkman?
    Thanks!

    The rings in the buttons you can ignore. Ring of Capstan may still be on capstan. Can almost not see it.
    Take a needle to see. For cable, I do not know. Maybe can a photo helps ....
