    I need the belt on the bottom and a good door latch. I fixed mine, the film take-up motor was malfunctioning and it was the damn door latch, and the physical latch is busted and I need a new one.

    And in my usual fashion I lost the belt trying to fix it, and YES i had all of the gears out and I GOT THEM ALL BACK TOGETHER first try (anyone who has disassembled one of these knows what I'm talking about)

    I got stuff to trade or cash. This was the camera that shot my brother's wedding so I would like to get it back on the road.

    Would a broken Canon A2e do you any good? Bob.

    I thought Lotus made the Elan :D What model is it outside the US ? I bought a new Canon EOS for £10 ($16) last year.

    It's the EOS30 or 33 in Europe. Have you contacted Canon to purchase spare parts? I did this for the door latches of my EOS50 here in Germany.
    There might be a repair manual (or parts list) online.

    I'll give it a try. I found the door latch on that auction site but no drive belt.
