You can replace the plastic sleeve. Go to and order the replacement sleeve repair kit.

How is the sleeve replaced? Are there instructions in the replacement kit? If not would I released the front roller or the rear one?
Expert:  treadmilltech replied 5 years ago.
Yes there are instructions included and you just put it on the front roller. You loosen the walk belt and remove the bolt from the front roller to pull it out. The sleeve works like shrink wrap, you just apply it with a hair dryer.
