I ever started a thread about ''irreparable carts'' but, alas, got
hardly any response. The Sony's series XL carts belong to
this ''category''. Not only because the plastic body is glued
together and need to be ''cut'' to get access to its inside parts but
the carts inside parts are ''potted'' . Even according to Mori ,the
XL series designer, are those carts irreparable. My XL 88 D
(D= diamond cantilever) is ruined by Axel's attempt to fix it.
This however does not mean that the stylus /cantilever can't
be changed . Those are reachable from outside. The ZYX carts
also have glued together bodies and problems with suspension.
To change the suspension one need to cut the ''covering
plate part'' and drill a hole on the left side to get access to the
fastening screw. I own the Airy 3-X which got new suspension
and stylus but with two ''holes'' in the body. This repair was possible because the inside parts are not ''potted''. However I fear that my Airy 3-X is unsaleable with its ''mutilated body''
