It should be a standard Eureka U belt. That number you have is not a good number. Most repair shops should have this one. The R belt is a real thin and different material.

very simple under all three screws in the front (two on sides and one in back) once open--you can take off that panel...take brush out...take old belt out...put new belt on..around brush..place both inside...and make sure belt is around that little pole thing towards the back close panel, replace screws

Lie the vacuum down so it's completely flat, the back of it facing up. On the bottom of it, on the grey plastic, there are instructions. They say, to access the belt, remove the screws numbered 1, 2, 3 & 4. Then look at the four corners of the bottom of the vacuum and you'll see these numbers. You may need a flashlight to actually see the screws because a couple of them are pretty deep inside the plastic. Loosen them with a long shafted, Phillips screwdriver. Stand the vacuum back up and the screws should just fall out. Then you can easily pop off the cover to change the belt.
