Pioneer pl 990 turntable

I can't figure out how to reattach the belt on my turntable-the belt came off and the operating instructions don't show how to put the belt on.

Appreciate any help.

    The belt goes on the bottom of the turntable platter. Take off the platter, attach the belt to the bottom lip of the platter, then put back on turntable. Rotate platter until you see the shaft of the motor through one of the holes in the platter. Pinch the belt around the motor. Your done.

Lift off the platter mat, then lift off the platter from the spindle - gently.
Underneath the platter is a sub-platter around which you place the belt - it should be held there by the stretch of the belt while you turn the platter back up the right way and place it back on the spindle.
Turning the platter by hand, you should see a small pulley come into view through one of the holes in the platter. You then stretch the belt slightly so that it slides over the pulley. Take care not to twist the belt while doing this.

PUT IT ROUND THE PLATTER BASE FIRST,THEN LOOP A BIT OF STRING ROUND THE BELT LONG ENOUGH, SO WHEN YOU PUT THE PLATTER BACK ON,YOU CAN LIFT IT UP A LITTLE BIT WHERE THE MOTOR WHEEL IS THAT TURNS THE BELT, PULL THE STRING TOWARDS IT SO THE BELT GOES OVER IT.DROP THE PLATTER THEN PULL THE STRING OUT.
