Belt replacement

Hi. can anyone point me to instructions for replacing belts on the L1528e (mfg # 1695822) i thought i found a video about it a couple years back but now can't locate it. pretty sure you have yo separate auger/impeller housing from traction unit but not sure how to do it

Don't know about the belts but hopefully someone will be along soon who does.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I don't know your machine but if you can't take the belt cover off and drop the belt down then the other way I've done it is removing the auger housing as you said. The ones I've done this way, you are removing the middle, the part that attaches to the engine base and the auger, but remove the part that attaches to the auger. There are 4 bolts, 2 on each side, top and bottom. These are the bolts you remove, then it separates.

This operator's manual should be pretty close for your blower

Wait a minute, it's been awhile, I think I removed the part attached to the engine? It was a nuisance! And should only be done on a warm day, or in a heated dry garage, when you don't have snow on the ground and are in a hurry at 25 degrees! Been there done that when I only had one blower.

JLawrence- you were right, and it was as I expected. 2 bolts on each side where auger housing connects and 2 bolts ( 1 on either side) at the bottom that just need to be loosened so the 2 sections can pivot open. i first disconnected the wires that control the chute. replacing auger belt was a snap. to get access and enough clearance to replace the drive belt i had to partially remove plate/pully assembly by removing 1 spring clip on end of shaft that secures the assembly to the housing. i just pushed it thru so that 1 side of plate assembly was loose and i could move it enough to slip the drive belt onto the pullys.Thanks for the help ! all in all it was a simple 20 minute procedure and I avoided a 65.00 shop charge !
