Everything works fine on my DVD/VCR, but when I stop a VHS tape from playnig and attempt to rewind it, the VCR eats the tape. I am sure that it is a belt that is causing the problem, but I am not sure which one. And if it is the one on the bottom then I need to find out how to get to it. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Please make sure that there is no debris within the vhs. Also, if the tape that you're attempting to play is at it's end, this might be forcing the ejection. So, you might have to attempt to rewind the tape from another vcr if possible. Please use 411, a pawn shop or your local white pages to attempt to find another vcr or camcorder to rewind that tape.
Most of these problems are caused by a faulty mode switch. If the mode switch has gone off of it's true position, then the electronics might well think it's in rewind mode even in the off position. Sometimes it's just the switch that is faulty, but sometimes damage to the mechanism has thrown off the switch.
you have a faulty SYSCON MICROCONTROLLER.+faulty associates circuits, like CLKS, RESET. you must go to the repair shop TV for fix it. However you can try as the last thing before to go the repair shopt, Clean tHE VHS+DVD, with tape cleaner+disc cleaner too.and Proof God bless you.
internal misalignment causes the tape to mount incorrectly, grabbing and eating the tape. must find a repair facility to realign. do not attempt yourself as the internal mechanisms are so delicate it is easy to cause another problem
If your unit is fairly new,your VCR part might be the problem.Take it back! If you have this unit for awhile,two things: 1. You need a professional A/V repair guy to clean up and check your VCR head. 2. The rental VHS tape is dirty. Good luck!
