Sony WM-D3 clicks

Postby mikkelbreiler » Sun Feb 27, 2011 12:05 pm

I have two of these and they both feature annoying clicks when used,. this is caused by the idler wheel being of a nasty concoction:
it is a not a rubber based idler but it is a metal one with plastic on the outer edge, when the two materials act together the plastic outer edge will crack and the teeth in the edge will appear to need an extra tooth, this extra missing tooth causes the click.
Any replacement part made the same way of two materials that work differently with heat and cold will fail. I reckon you can only fix this with either a new idler made entirely out of one material, so it will not crack.

Has anyone had similar experience and perhaps found a way to get around this problem?
