Question about Hoover Elite U5061-900 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I'm tryint to change the belt on my Hoover bagged sweeper. Model number U4245 Serial number 019300028284 belt number 38528-027. I took the cover plate off and removed the brush but the pin that holds the belt isn't exposed. I can't figure out how to get to the piece that holds the belt and drives the beater bar.
You have to take the top (hood) off. Mine is red. I'm not sure if they are all the same, but I suspect they are. There are 4 tabs that hold it on. First, gently wedge a screwdriver between the red hood and the black bottom plate around the side of the rear wheels. There is a tab on both sides.
When those are loose, you should be able to find the next two pretty easy. They are about 1 1/2 inches back from the rollers. ALL tabs are between the black bottom plate and the red hood. The hood will lift right off. You'll want to place the new belt around the brush rollers first then, then over the pully pin.
Hope this helps!

Real simple you have to articulate the belt a little sideways and the belt should slide right between the pulley and the plastic.
Hope this helps.
