It is a killer to do. I promise it does fit, even though it may seem too small. The easiest way to do it is to take the screws out that hold the bottom panel on, (just the ones that are right up front) and let the bottom panel fall open so you can reach in better. Start the belt on the motor pulley, get it as far as you can on the tranny pulley, and start rotating it until it snaps on.

Hope that helps!

Cant find a diagram for the serp belt. I replaced the alternator on a 01 windstar w/ a 3.8 V6 and need to know how to find and loosen the tensioner

For 2001 Ford Truck Windstar 3.8L SFI 6cyl


Fig. Accessory serpentine belt routing-3.8L engine (click for zoom)

Using a 15mm wrench attached to the drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate the tensioner clockwise to release the tension. Remove the drive belt from the pulley. When installing the new drive belt, ensure that the drive belt is routed correctly and note the position of the indicator mark on the tensioner.

I have a murray riding mower and I cant for the life of me see how you take off the engine drive belt. I have already cut it off and ordered new belts, but how do you put it back on? I cant see how you get...

Drop the deck and you will see the drive belt. One idler pulley you have to take completely off. But belt on in reverse order. Look up the manual it you have problems.

When selecting the carpet cleaning mode, it appears the belt is slipping (due to the noise) over the drive pulley. How do you access the drive mechanism to replace belt or inspect drive pulley and belt...

On those units you must replace the clutch assy. you cant just replace the belt. there is also a special tool used to get the new belts on the brushbar. If you would like me to walk you through this repair let me know.

Hi This is quite complicated but I'll try and simplify this for you:
If this is a Panasonic upright then there are two drive belts as you know. Once you take off the sole plate (where the beater bar is) by undoing screws and the beater bar is looking at you, you would have to take off the smaller belt motor pulley first before putting on a new larger drive belt. If the smaller belt is still intact and you only need to replace the larger belt, you'll still have to take off both belts to put on the new drive belt.
Motor pulley belt has to be taken off first then the old drive belt, then grasp the beater and slide on new larger drive belt before having to attach the motor pulley belt and then the larger belt onto the motor pulley. Once all belts have been attached ensure that the beater bar is pushed in correctly before you screw the sole plate back on.
