If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

This is pretty easy. Turn vac upside down, remove brush cover, brush with belt on it pops out on each side. You must get the exact replacement belt so take your model number and any other numbers to vacuum repair shop. The belt around brush then around motor spindle, replace brush and cover.

Hi Anonymous, if the threads are stripped in the head they can be repaired without removing the head. I strongly recomend that you take your bike to your local dealer or reputable shop for repairs instead of trying to fix it yourself. Good luck

I had my window motor replaced because it died and got my car back from the shop and now my window makes a popping sound as its being rolled up or down. It never did this noise before I took it into t

Please try your best not to use the window until it is repaired.
The glass or the "regulator" is hitting something inside the door, and that may break something, any time soon.
If the shop that fixed it won't make it right, you need to 1) take it somewhere else, and 2) don't use that shop anymore!
P.S. they should not charge you to "make it right".

I need to refit the v belt on my ford ikon 1,6 rocam please help me out with a diagram

GO TO THIS LINK. At 2min 38 sec. it shows the belt layout

Incase you can't here goes. Clock wise. Power steering, altenator, idler pulley, air con, cranck, tensioner, water pump back to power steering. Little space and quite tricky to get belt over all the pulleys without it popping of somewhere. I also have a problem with the belt supplied by spare shops. 6pk2100, its to small. at least on mine.

I just had serpentine belt and another belt replaced in 2000 protege and now when I come to a stop it feels like it is going to stall out.

if this was done at a shop take it back and they by law need to fix it without charge. if not dont by a repair shop, try making sure the belt tentioner is not too tight, the car could be struggling to pull the belt. when you hit your break not only are you slowing your tires but your making the engine slow itself, putting more torque on the pulleys.

Should i take the back off to fix belt? will the

Belts are usually replaced fromt eh back service panel, but often it helps if you "pop the top". Put a screw driver in the seam at the front corners and pop the top upward. It will hinge at the back.
