Remove the back panel, then the top and sides metal plate, the the fron (after removing the head cap and three tape guide rollers). Keep the parts together in a save place.
Then remove the head bracket. Behind the heads, the drive belt is located. Remove the old one, clean the small and large wheel with some isopropyl ethanol and then attach the belt preferably without touching it with bare hands (use some dentist's gloves for example). Finally reassemble all parts in reverse order.
You can get spare belts for the X-3 ad X-3R or MKii over at eBay.It's also easy to replace the couner belt once you've removed the front panel.

If you are not familiar with such work, I don't recommend trying to install belt(s). Replacing belts may involve disassembly of mechanism parts and critical adjustments to follow. Take to a pro/tech

How to fit capstan belt on teac x-3

It is put on by taking the front cover off of the machine. There are others that tell you to go through the back and fish the belt around but when we did them at Teac the front cover came of and the oiling of bearings and cleaning of the flywheel was done at the same time as well as other things.

Teac v 370 cassette deck belt

You need only to measure the diameter of the belt in mm. Then enter "cassette tape belt ??mm" into Google. They are universal. If you're measurement comes to say 53mm then a smaller belt of say 50mm will fit it.

Mke certain you make a note of how it fits before removing the belt.

Drive belts on tape decks are mostly universal. You only need to measure the diameter of each belt in mm and then enter the result in Google as "Cassette drive belt ??mm".

You can get a FRESH belt kit from here. Cost you $10 plus some post. There is a new pinch roller listed against this old girl also could be worth replacing at the same time when you service the deck.

TEAC CX-370 Cassete Deck

Could be a worn out belt? The cassette loads it the drive down too much. Hence why it turns with no tape.
