Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer , to access the belts you have to remove the cover between the engine and chute , there should be 2 bolts holding the cover on , on on each side . Once that is removed you will have access to the belts . Is that the full model number ? I tried looking for a diagram for you but 524 may be the series and there may be a actual full model number in the machine somewhere

Once you remove the cover you will see both belts, there are belt guides that are bolted to the engine , you will need to loosen them .
