Hi, and thank you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.
You have to wiggle the cover around to get it out of the way enough to get your hands on top of the secondary clutch so you can open the clutch up and remove the belt.
To open the clutch you can grab the outer and inner discs and twist them in opposite directions and that will let the clutch open so the belt will fall down in it.
That gives you the slack to pull it off that clutch.
The best way for me to learn is to have someone show me.

You don't have to remove it to change the belt. Just enough to get your hands in there.
You can get it but you just have to wiggle it around and then bend it enough to get it out.
If it's cold you will break it so I don't recommend you try that.
