If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt #
38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.
you most likely have to remove the cover over the roller, which has screws usually. then you will see the belt. the roller slips out replace the belt by putting it over the roller and a metal rod that is up under the cover you removed. this will be a hard job putting the roller bar back in the vacuum because the belt is so tight.
There are 4 screws that you need to remove. The belt lies between the roller and a pin. With a little effort, you just pull out the roller, and the belt will come loose. When putting the new belt, you need to insert the belt into the pin first and then put the other end of the belt onto the roller. Then pull the roller and put it back into its groove. Voila!

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
