Preface: Dyson folks were great, answer so simple I was embarassed after I called. 5 minute fix.
1. Loosen 3 screws from bottom plate using flathead screwdriver or coin edge and remove it.
2. Wiggle roller until it pulls straight out.
3. Squeeze new belt and loop it over metal drive gear (you'll easily see the gear).
4. Keeping belt on gear, insert edge of roller through belt and rotate the roller while pushing it through belt until it is inside the belt, then continue rotating roller and sliding it over until belt is in position over gears on roller.
5. Insert roller into slots on that it came out of, reattach bottom cover and its done.

there is a reset button under the cover that houses the on/off switches. remove the handle/wand and look on the back (where the top of the hose sits) for 2 screws (its a torx/star head screw size t10 i believe). remove them and locate 4 small locking tabs that hold the switch cover to the frame of the vacuum. Depress them and pop the cover off (2 towards the top and 2 towards the bottom). Youll see 3 switches (2 square red buttons and one small cylindrical shaped one). Push the small red one (the one to the left if my memory serves me right). you should hear a click. if you do than the switch is reset. if not check all connections to all 3 switches. if you see nothing loose or not connected, you may need a new brushbar motor. try it

Make sure the flexible hose that connects the beater brush housing up to the connection up by the dust bin is still connected. It could also have a hole in it so check for that as well.
