Hello, in the case of a belt breaking or shredding it's best to remove the variator to check for any belt pieces. You will not be able to remove the nut without an impact wrench. With the variator offmake sure the rollers are still in place. The pulleys areo ut of alingment due to the belt breaking and the pullys still spinning independant ofeach other.

If you want to try putting the belt on without checking the variator for belt pieces you need to rotate the variator clock wise while pulling out to make the pully it'ssmallest diameter to install the belt.

This video shows how, and this page shows how it should work after installation
