The most difficult parts of repairing the vacuum is finding the correct belt and removing the cover without breaking the tabs. The internet helps cross-referencing the belt.

First find access to the belt by removing screws and covers, followed by removing and cleaning the beater bar or brush roller, and the surrounding area. Then put on the new belt over the bar and motor shaft. Finally reassemble the beater bar and cover.
