Lift the light bulb housing up and you will find a latch that will rotate to release the front agitator housing and remove it from the machine. On the bottom of that housing, there are two latches that secure the bottom plate that covers the roller. Remove the plate and the roller will come out. Be sure to notice that the roller has a magnet at one end that lines up with the indicator that shows you when the roller is turning - it's the little green light that glows while you are vacuuming. The roller needs to go back in the same way it came out. O.K. Take your new belt and position it around the middle of the roller and drop the roller back into place and replace the bottom plate. On the front of the housing, there is a big square "knob" and you can rotate that piece. If you look inside the hole on the other side of the agitator housing, you will see that there is an arm that moves with the square knob. The end of this arm will catch the belt and with a little effort, the knob will rotate and lift the belt into position for replacing the housing back on to the machine. once you have the housing back on the machine and secure, you rotate the square knob back around and the belt will sit down on the drive shaft. If you look at the top of the agitator housing just above where the knob is, you will see a red and a green arrow which indicate which way the knob turns to do the "remove" belt or "replace" belt. I hope this helps. Once you do it properly, it actually is quite easy.

Take the noozle off of the vac. take out the brush roll and old belt, put the belt over the brush roll and re-instal in the noozle. Turn the big square knob on the front os far as you can, it will lock in that position, then put it back on the vac and lock it down, then turn the knob the other way to release the belt unto the belt pulley.

Rotate the square knob on the front of the attachment to the "Belt On"
position (green marker). Insert your fingers in the attachment port
(the round opening on the back where the "hook" is) and position the
belt so it's centered and as high up as it will go (that's usually just
below the center of the opening. THEN rotate the square knob on the
front to the "Belt Off" position. You should feel the belt tighten up
and the know harder to rotate.
