How to change belt on this model?

Answers :

Changing the belt on this nifty little machine only seems difficult until you find all eight of the screws that hold the entire assembly together, and the nice thing is you get to totally ignore the torx style screws altogether.
\015\012There are two screws in the bottom of the unit just forward and to either side of the beater brush, remove 'em.
\015\012Flip the vacuum over and remove the two screws holding the top in place. One is located under the removable suction hose near the right rear wheel, the other is in plain sight over the left rear wheel.
\015\012After you pop the top off you'll see the dark clear plastic housing that covers the beater brush and belt assembly. It is held in place by four more screws, three on the back side of the beater and one on the front side in the center of the machine.
\015\012Change your belt, clean your brush and tell your kids to get back to work while you take something out for dinner and open a cold one.

You will need a Philips screw driver (a medium-large one) and (of course) a new belt. You release the handle to the 3rd level so the entire vacuum lies flat. Flip her over and unscrew the front plate that covers the beater bar (should be 4 silver coloured screws...they are pretty long [1"-2"], so be prepared to give your wrist a workout) and remove the cover. The plate that covers the beater bar is vaguely shaped like a "b". The "l" part of the "b" covers the belt. To put in the new belt (I assume the old one is gone), first, you'll need to remove the beater bar. This should just pull up (I might take a little effort). Next, towards the top of the "l" area that was covered by the plate over the beater bar, there should be a metal shaft. Slide the belt between the wall and the shaft so the belt is looped around the shaft. Now take the beater bar (still out of the vacuum) and put it through the belt (MAKE SURE NOTHING IS TWISTED!!!). There should be a "groove" or a slightly indented area on the beater bar that should hint you as to where the belt goes. Now replace the beater bar with the belt on it (you will have to pull HARD!!!). Once the beater bar is securely in place, you should be able (carefully) freely spin the beater bar (make sure it doesn't become dislodged) to help push the belt back to true if it wags. Once everything looks good. Replace the "b" like cover (make sure to get the tabs of the cover into the slots at the very front of the vacuum) screw everything back together hand tight (do not over tighten!) and happy Hoovering!
