Philips cassette deck repair in JHB?

Does anyone know where a friend of mine can have his deck repaired in Johannesburg, ideally in Kempton Park area. Apparently, it needs new rubbers bands.

It is a Philips deck CCD-60

Thanks for the replies guys. Just to be clear, he does not want to repair it himself, he wants someone to do it.
How about Nilam?

The reason you are not getting any replies is that most cassette decks are not financially viable to repair. There's lots of moving parts that can be worn out. Motors, friction clutches, idlers, gears etc. You can see if a belt is broken or rotted, but you will only know of the other issues once you replace it.
So. sorry for the bad news, but I'm sure your friend wouldn't want to pay 10 times the value of his deck for a technician to fix it.
Expensive cables come in fancy silk lined wooden boxes to make you feel better about spending a fortune on them.

You can contact Doug's TV repair (Garsfontein, Pretoria).

They repair all sorts of audio equipment: 012 991 0408 or WhatsApp 081 715 8819 (Joseph). If it's simply the belts, they should be able to sort it out.

You can arrange with me if he cannot get to Pretoria during business hours, I live nearby, and can drop off.

Alternatively, if you or your friend is using Facebook, join the Tape Heads South Africa group and ask for recommendations there.
