I am not sure what type of bike you have (did not bother looking it up), but I myself too have a schwinn exercise bike (recumbent) and the straps recently broke, and when I sent customer service an email from their site they said they sell replacement straps.
I included the kind of bike I had when I inquired so the price given to me might be exclusive to my bike only, so you'll have to contact customer support yourself to see if they sell replacement straps for your bike and if so how much.

You need a new crank arm. If you ride with the nut loosened what happens is the square part of the bottom bracket shaft wears the hole out in the aluminum crank and it no longer fits snugly no matter how much you tighten it down.

Hello,you only have to take the peddles off. The right one comes of anti- clockwise, and the left one comes of clockwise. There is a large plastic ring on the cover at the place where the peddle shaft goes in. get a screwdriver into this and prise it of, this will allow enough for the cover to come of. Mines is the same not enough power to pull cable.

I looked into this thinking is must be a simple belt, or tention wheel, but these devices are much more complex than the average exercise machine. See the Recumbent selection here.
It appears that the tentioning device is a magnetic brake.
This would require that it be plugged into a power source and programmed to provide a desired tention.
I've never used one of these so I can't say what kind of programming options there are or where they are found.
Hope this helps.

There are three main types of resistances, the fan resistance used
to provide resistance with air they push as you pedal. The second type is the
belt resistance which uses a belt that runs through a brake providing
resistance for the exercise bikes. The third type is the magnetic exercise bike
which provides resistance which can easily be adjusted while riding the bike.
