Loosen the tension on the belt's idler and take the belt free from under it. This will allow removal. Replacement of the belt is in reverse order of removal. Pay particular attention to how the belt is routed, since many belt placements may be made across the same pulleys, without achieving a proper fit and action using the proper belt. The belt is designed to fit one way only; and, although it may seem proper to install it some other way, any way not intended will produce lousy results.
