Question about Garden
You will have to remove the cutting deck from under the ride on to have better access to the belt
If you take a picture of the cutting deck once it is removed it will assist you in putting it back together.
To remove the cutting head belt from the engine bottom pulley you must push the foot pedal down and lock it in place to take the pressure off the belt to remove it from the pulley.
There is most probably a rod that hangs down close to the side of the pulley which is there to stop the belt from coming off when the pressure has been taken off the belt, you have to loosen the rod retaining bolt and move it away from the side of the pulley to get the room to remove the belt, there will be a cable that adjusts the deck cutting height which has to be removed from the cutting deck to be able to remove the deck, there should only be 3 anchor points that hold the deck under the mower, 2 on the sides and a steel rod throught the front with spring clips on them for quick removal.
when the deck is out you will see t hat both the belt pulleys on the deck have plastic guards on them which have to be removed to be able to get the belt off the pulleys.
Replace the belt and install all the parts in the reverse order that you removed them in.
Is a reasonably large job for a person who has never done it before but it is a job that anyone can do if they just take their time and also a few pics before removing just for a reference
Hope this helps
