> DRIVE BELT REMOVAL

1. Securely insert the spindle handle or ratchet handle with a 12.7 mm (1/2-inch) insertion angle into the jig hole of the auto-tensioner.

2. Rotate the auto-tensioner counterclockwise and align hole A with hole B.

3. Insert an L-shaped hexagon wrench, etc. Into the hole to fix and then remove the drive belt.

CAUTION:
To reuse the drive belt, draw an arrow indicating the rotating direction (clockwise) on the back of the belt using chalk, etc.
