    I bought a brand new metro HP a few weeks ago and since day one ive noticed a problem with the belt on the right side. Everything drives the way it should but the belt is not where it's suppose to be 80% of the time. It slips of towards the right but the wheel is there to keep it half way on. It still drives, but, with the ECS its alot easier to pull on the right hand side to to turn right than the left hand side. Any idea on how to fix this?

    Normally this is a misalignment of the drive belt idler. This weldment can "shift" it's alignment as it cools from the welding process. Normally this is caught in the assembly process and they simply give it a littl tweek and all is good. Simply take it into the dealer and have them adjust it. This is something we should take care on a machine this new.

    Thanks and I apologize for the inconvenience.
