Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I have the bottom removed and I found one screw underneath for the right side but can not slide off to get to the drive belt inside
SOURCE: Samsung v20 disassembly
After removing the screws, lift the keypad by releasing the two latches just below the ALT key and WINDOWS key. Two more screws are hidden beneath the keyboard. Hope this helps

Just a bit more info...a bit more detail
Remove the two screws from the case at the back.
Sit the unit in normal upright position. Use a good torch and look at the back of the unit along the top seam where the plastic case joins the main body - there are three latches to disengage along this seam.
1. The thumbwheel which turns to the left & exposes the tab. This disengages a simple Tee'd section on the wheel which stops the case sliding down. As long as you can see the tab this is disengaged.
2 & 3. On the far left & far right of the seam are simple lever latches which must be pushed back towards the main body to allow the rear case to slide down. Push these in then the case will slide down quite easily.

The center section does come out it has little tabs front and rear you have to bend it very carfully.GOOD LUCK

Testimonial: "Guru thanks, that worked. Panel off but can't access the back side of the exterior door handle to replace the screws that hold it on? Any ideas? "
This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.
What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.
Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.
The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.
