I just did this. You may need a second set of hands.... Remove the mower deck & back plate. Depress the clutch (this shortens the distance between the pullies.) Pull the belt slack toward rear of the tractor. Remove belt upwards from the transaxle pulley by deflecting belt keepers. Pull belt toward front of the tractor and remove downwards from around the engine pulley. Install the new belt by reversing the procedure. NOTE- there's a diagram of the procedure on page 24 of the owners manual (which I downloaded when I couldn't find my original)

    Screeching noise coming from the drive belt is this common

    When your drive belt becomes old and stretches so it is no longer tight enough the belt will make a loud squealing noise and will need to be replaced. While the drive belt is off during replacement, you or the mechanic replacing the belt will need to turn each pulley in the system that can be turned by hand to see if any of those are making a metallic noise also. If they make a metallic noise, they are worn out. It is common for a drive belt to wear out and cause this noise.

    Drive Belt broke on my 2005 1200XLC Sportster

    A Sportster is not too difficult to change. You will have to remove the rear wheel, the right shock absorber and the front drive sprocket cover to change the belt. I think you can get the belt on without pulling the front drive sprocket. I always pull it but I don't think it's really necessary. You can work the belt over the edge of the sprocket.

    When you put the new belt on, put the right leg of the swingarm through the belt so that when you get the belt over the front drive sprocket, the other end of the belt is INSIDE the swingarm. Take care and do not bend the belt into a radius smaller than about 4". Bending it any smaller than that will break the fibers in the belt and shorten the life. They ain't cheap either. There should be a note in the box about this. If you must take the front drive pulley off, an air wrench will usually do the trick.

    The BIG TWINS are the ones that are a real PITA.

    Good Luck

    How do I change an alternator belt on a '99 hyundai accent?

    Call your local National Guard Armory, Fire Station, State College auto program or High School Auto Shop and ask if they have somebody that would come put it on for you. Ask you pastor who the "auto guy" in the church is, if you don't have a church call the biggest church closest to you and ask the receptionist if they have an "auto guy" that would help you. The local senior center or VFW hall have "auto guys" . If you were within 50 miles of 83501 I'd come do it for you.

    Removal & Installation Raise and support the vehicle.
      Remove the engine splash shield.
    1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
    2. Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
    3. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
    4. Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.
    To install:
    1. Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
    2. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
    3. Install the drive belt to the alternator.
    4. Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
    5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
    6. Install the engine splash shield.
    7. Lower the vehicle.

    It's O.K. to ask for some help.
