Press down on the tracking knob to release belt tension (see Figure 18).
Remove the belt from the three pulleys. Install the replacement belt.
Replace side cover; secure the cover with two knobs.

IMPORTANT: Some belts have a directional arrow printed on the

inside of the belt. In these cases the belt must be installed so the direc-
tional arrow is in the same direction that the machine is running. The
sanding belt travels down the front of the machine.

Before installing the upper belt cover, start the sander and check belt

tracking. Adjust tracking if needed (refer to Tracking the Sanding Belt).
