  • New Maestro owner

    Hi All, I have recently purchased a 1988 Maestro 1.3L, this was a major nostalgia trip having owned 3 brand new Maestros between 1983 and 1991. Actually my "new" car isn't far off actually being new in most respects. One of the very few issues is the non functioning radio cassette which I would like to remedy. It powers up, ie illuminates but only rustles and the display is largely blank. Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable replacement, or repairer? Preserving the original appearance is something I would like to achieve. Secondly, I will probably join the owners club in full but can't really ascertain what the benefits are. Perhaps someone could shed some light on this?

    Regards, Steven

    Further to my "new member" forum message yesterday, I have now paid my 20 subs so am a full member of the owners club! My comments re membership benefits may well be redundant now. It was just that there doesn't appear to be any separate log in areas within the website for paid up owners club members. In addition to my request for assistance in respect to my radio cassette, where does a Maestro owner obtain maintenance spares? I'm thinking fan belt, hoses, filters etc. Thanks in anticipation, Steven.

      Hi and welcome. There are a few companies that repair radio/cassettes but that would depend on your location. What radio is it as there are many differences ?

        Hi Jeff, the radio cassette is a Philips R570. I live in Lincolnshire. I have heard of companies who retain the external appearance but renew the internals with up to date technology. That is a possible Avenue to approach. Of course I can make my own enquiries but first thought that many other Maestro and Montego owners must have been there before me! Thanks for the "welcome " by the way.

              I've used him before and he's very good. You can get replacement radio cassettes as I'm sure they're on ebay, but try him if you need. He doesn't open early btw
