There some screws on the bottom to take off, then turn vac upright, under the round Hoover logo sticker is another screw. It is just a sticker, so will peel off. You can work the belt onto the motor pulley, or unscrew the motor, put the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the screws to hold down the motor.
