Question about Eureka Smartvac 4870 Bagged Upright Vacuum
I have a Eureka "The Boss" SmartVac. I took the bottom cover off to replace the belt. There is no way to get a belt around the drive shaft; there is no gap between the end of the shaft and the side of the vacuum in which to slide the belt. Does the shaft telescope somehow to allow you to get the belt around it? The last time the belt broke, I had a friend take the vacuum apart in many pieces to get the belt around the shaft. I cannot believe you have to go through 45 minutes of disassembly to get a belt on. The instructions say to simply take 3 screws off the bottom plate, take the bottom plate off, and then put the belt on. I'm stumped.
Just in case you're still having this problem.... you don't need to fit the belt around the motor shaft. Only wrap it around the brush roller and the piece near the back that you are able to put the belt around, and snap the brush back into place. It didn't look like it would work (it looked like my cat could have done the same thing and gotten the same result) but it works gloriously now!
Hope this helps.

Have you pulled the roller out? Once you take the bottom plate off, the roller should slide out of its slot. Then you should easily be able to access the motor shaft.
