    You shouldn't have to open the unit at all. You probably just remove the rubber mat and pull up on the turntable itself. On my unit the belt rides on the outside edge of the turntable and to a small post on the drive motor.

    Does the platter move up and down and can you pull the platter up over a 1/8 of an inch? If you can then what may be keeping the platter from coming up is vacuum you are creating as you try to remove the platter. I have seen this on most of the better turntables that have a solid shaft supporting the platter. On turntables that do not have a solid shaft you will typically find a clip ring on the support tube that protrudes through the support tube in to a grove in the platter shaft that keeps you from removing the platter.

    Lastly give Technics a call and ask if they can email you a service manual I know for the Pro Audio gear they will send out service manuals at no charge.

    alot of tables also have a keeper key or ring on the top side of the table remove it and the whole table comes up

    Ya only got me by a couple o' years. I used to have a
    Technics turntable, but sold the whole system before
    my present move. Actually had some kid ask me "What's that"
    when pointing to it. That one sunk in hard!

    Have a good one
