My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

CLICK HERE for a video on how to change the belt. You don't want to remove any belts until the belt is off. You use a wrench or a socket with ratchet to remove. 18mm will be the needed size.
