Question about John Deere Garden
There is an idler pulley that puts tension on the belt. You unhook the spring from the idler arm, put the new belt on (it will be loose, not tight) then hook the spring back onto the idler by pulling hard on the spring with a pair of visegrip or channellock pliers. Here's a parts diagram. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.
