You will have to access the motor by removing the entire bottom brush housing and tilting the vac motor shaft out of the housing. Once released you will have a main body and brush housing.
There are visible motor housing screws in the lower portion of the main housing and if I recall there may be twoscrews inside the bag chamber as well

My guess is it has plastic teeth that latches on somewhere, use flathead screwdriver gently to see if it'll budge. Normally the bottom is where it detaches, start there.

Hello, Put the vac on its side and remove the screws holding the cover plate on. This exposes the beater bar and belt on the side. Pull the beater bar out and take the belt off. Reverse this to put the belt back in place.

There are usually two portions of the top lid to be removed to gain access to the motor compartment. Lift the top lid, squeeze the hinge to get the side into the frame of the hinge so it can release and allow them to come out. The same procedure should get the second lid removed. Now you should be at the second cover assembly, which is removed by releasing two, one on each side, snap clip tabs. They are located on the side of the 3rd cover, near the front corner. The corner needs to be lifted till the little tab snaps loose, then when both sides are loose this cover can be removed. Keep an eye out for screws that may need to be removed from time to time on some of the covers. They should be fairly self-evident when they're there. This should put you into the motor cavity so that you can lift the motor out , disconnect the wires and go check the motor.

How do I pop the top off to replace level adjustment lever.

Turn the machine over (with the handle released). Remove the 4 screws (2 on each end of the cover over the brush). Remove the cover. There are 2 screws, deep in the machine (behind drive train wheels) remove the screws. With the machine in the same position, note 2 plastic clips located on either side of the top cover. Release the clips using a slotted screw drive.

How do I change the belt in my Panasonic vac? MCV 9620


Actually I just answered a similar question on how to open the power nozzle on a Sears Kenmore. The Sears Kenmore is actually made by Panasonic, and the repair is identical to replace the belt. Here's my other repair solution that includes a link to the Panasonic instruction manual that will walk you right through this repair;

I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.

In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.

After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.

I hope that this helps you repair your belt. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner. If you have any other questions about how to repair this, please feel free to request a clarification, or add a comment to the repair, and I'll be more then happy to help you.

Thanks very much,

Chris Jones

Panasonic Vacuum MC-E450UK

Panasonic MC-E 450UK upright vacuum cleaner.
Just had this problem myself...........easy to get at it when you know how.
Panasonic UK wouldn't help me so I spent some time working it it is.
Remove the hose from its mounting storage at the rear (called hose clip) where the main body of the vacuum cleaner meets the base of the handle assembly. Remove the screw at the rear of the handle assembly which is behind where the hose 'was' situated and is located inside the deep recess.
Using the soft part of your clenched hand as a hammer, knock the base of the handle assembly at the front and it will slide backwards off the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Don't be scared, give it a thump and keep moving it backwards with a few more knocks.
Next remove the two screws at the front which hold the mains cable and on/off switch cover in place.
Finally looking from the rear once more, lift the plastic 'lug' at the top of the cover and which is part of the cover. This will now allow you to release the cover and pull it forward.
There you go! Told you it was easy!
Watch out for the funny little spring at the front behind the cover in the tiny plastic tube where it connects to the small rubber tubing as it could possibly try to escape.
You now have complete access in order to cut the intermittent part of the cable out and remove it from the 'choc' block.
Happy fixing!!

The top light cover comes off, on each side and on the back edge, push in to release it and take it off, then remove the 2 screws and the light bulb. Then with a flat blade, from the bottom edge, there is a slot on each side, stick the flat blade screwdriver into the slot and pry up to release the locking tabs, cover will now come off and you can get to the belt to replace it.
