Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.On many of these machines you actually have to remove the transmission in order to change or replace the motion drive belt. There is not enough space between the top of the transmission and the frame in order to slide the old belt out or the new belt in. It is not an easy task but with some patience it can be done. You don't have to completely remove the transmission but you do need to lower the transmission out of the frame or mounted position in order to get access to the motion drive belt to change or replace it.
