Tighten the belts its no big deal as already said the tranny belt is under the machine at bottom ot gearbox. I put lots of hrs on the belt drives and I replace all belts yearly may cost 100 at most and save the old ones for backup. The tranny is probally fine but 500 is crazy for one they go for under 250 complete and take less than an hour to change out. I have a spare rebuilt one that cost about 30 to rebuild just in case one goes out.
