Re: changing the belt
If this is a Savvy, then take out the screws for the bottom plate, then remove the screws that hold the top on, turn the vac over, and remove the Hovver emblem, there is a screw there, then the top cover comes off and you can replace the cogged belt.

Turn the vacuum upside down, there should be two thumb release pivot screws. Remove bottom cover, now you have access to the belt. Remove belt that's in figure eight position, then reinstall same as above with figure eight position.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=0&thid=733898 Generic problem for all Vacuums I am trying to change Posted by fuzzyplus1 on Jul 02, 2008 I am trying to change the belt on a Hoover legacy dirt finder. I cannot figure out how to get to the inside pulley where the belt hooks. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Hoover legacy belt change can either be changed from the bottom of the vacuum by either taking out the screws, clips or levers, and then you can remove the bottom plate or the top cover, what ever the case might be. Then you can cut off the old belt and then guide the new belt onto the motor pulley by using a long nose pliers or a screwdriver; if it is hard to reach and then take the brushroll and slide it inside of the belt and then pull back until the brushroll will fit into the brushroll holder, then you can replace the top cover or the bottom plate and reverse the procedure that you did to change the belt. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®?
Unplug the machine.
From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.
Take off the bottom plate, look in the bottom to see if there are any screw, could be 2 of them, then from the bottom there is a slot on each side of the top cover, using a flat screwdriver, insert blade into the slot and pry up to release the locking tabs. Belt # is 38528040. Put the bell over the brush roll, put belt thru opening and put atound the motor shaft, put back together.
Remove the belt cover, Turn the Bissell over, remove the brush asm. You can then change both belts. While you have the belts off, check the cogged gear on the pump, if it is stripped smooth, then you will have to replace the pump also. The gear comes with the pump and not separately.
