Can't get to motor to connect belt after removing brush cover

Again, how does one replace belt on this machine when there doesn't appear to be any way to access the inside? A schemata (picture) of the the process would be very helpful. Thank you
Re: Can't get to motor to connect belt after removing...
I followed the instructions that were supplied @ the FixYa site, to remove the hood. Removing the hood was the problem. Just follow the online users manual pages 22 thru 26. you must spread the hood by the rear wheels to remove.
Thank You Very Much. Delano

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.
