Actually this is a fairly easy looking one to replace. If you go to John Deere parts and do a search for your tractor, in the parts listing it gives a pretty clear picture of the routing and configuration of the belt as it should go on, you might want to print it out to have nearby while you are working on it. You will need to remove the mowing deck to get at it and possibly some large blocks to elevate the tractor to give yourself room to work.
Look closely at the old belt if it is still on the tractor to get an idea what is involved BEFORE you start, comparing it with the picture. You will need to loosen and move or remove the belt guards and do be careful of the nylon fan on top of your transaxle

How do I replace the drive belt on a john deere 265? There doesn't seem to be a clear answer anywhere. Please help


you can look at the manuel that came with the mower or if you did not get one, go to the JD mower web site and look up you model and download the needed documentation. If that is not possible contact the local JD mower dealer and get a copy of the mower deck docs and look at the instructions for belt replacement.

John deere l118 belt adjustment


There are two things to check first. First is that you have the right belt on there and it is not worn. Second would be that all the springs are on the proper tensioning pulleys under the deck. After that then you need to look for an adjustable pulley that is manually tightened and held in place by a bolt. That will be your idler. You will also want to check the track of the belt to make sure nothing is bent.

John deere x300 will not move


It sounds to me like the traction drive belt slipped off of a pulley or broke. The easiest way to get to the traction belt is to remove the mower deck. There is no easy way to replace the belt, however. It runs from the transaxle at the rear to the engine at the front, around idlers. Let me know if you would like assistance in replacing the belt and I can walk you through it, Daniel.
