I have a 2008 Honda metropolitan that went under water

Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Honda metropolitan that went under water during some flooding. I am wondering if there is a drain plug for the drive belt housing

Mechanic's Assistant: What shape is the drive belt in? Do you know if it needs to be replaced, or just adjusted?

I don't know. I haven't removed the cover. I was just going to try to drain the water

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 Honda?

Chf 50

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

All I have done so far is drain the water out of the engine and change the oil. I have not started the engine yet. I wanted to make sure my drive system was in order before doing that

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really. I just wanna know if the drive belt case has a drain plug or if I just have to take the whole cover off

Hello, you'll need to remove the cover as there is no drain plug. I'll post how below.
