    I can't find anything on line and just peeking in at it last weekend it looked like it might be tough. I am familiar with replacing wright sentar and that one is tough. I take the deck off on those and wondered if that might be best on this unit

    Anybody replaced one?

    Real easy. Take the cover off that's in front of your toes. Grad the tension spring with pliers and pull it off the bolt to give the new belt lots of room. Put on belt. Pull tight tension spring and put it back on bolt. 5 min start to finish.

    Sometimes just starting the job is the hardest.

    The clutch doesn't need to be unplugged?
