Default TEAC VRDS-7 Broken Sled Gear

I have a TEAC VRDS-7 that developed a fault - the draw would not open when a CD was loaded. The culprit was a broken gear that TEAC calls a 'sled gear'. In fact the gear had more or less disintegrated. However they have advised that they believe they can no longer supply the part. I live in New Zealand and have found there are no parts available here, and apparently that there are no parts available from Japan.

I have the distinct impression that the local guys are really telling me they cannot be bothered with a model they never distributed (they only import TEAC plastic here - not the real stuff), and they don't know why anyone would bother with such an old unit (since the stuff they import isn't worth repairing anyway).

As it happens it is 'mint' with less than 200 hours of use on it - it happened to be stored for some years.

So I am hoping that someone can point me at a helpful TEAC parts distributor who might possibly consider an international transaction.

Thanks to anyone that can help

I had the same problem on my VRDS T1, but I managed to get the part through the Dutch service station. There are two gears, a yellowish white one with two different gears and a big black one. Which one is broken? The black one you can not order anymore.
