Hello, I have a Honda HRR216K10VKAA (Serial# MZCG - 1431747) and I am having a heck of a time removing the transmission drive belt from the drive pulley on the transmission. If someone has any tips on this issue please send them my way, thanks. I have provided some pictures for reference.

I managed to get the transmission loose to rotate, but I see a way to get the drive belt off the transmission pulley.

Hello Mark, thank you for the reply. The URL you provided only applies if the guard bracket fasteners are accessible and removable. Unfortunately the guard is impossible to remove in my case. The two fasteners are under the transmission drive pulley and impossible to remove. The only plausible conclusion is to remove the transmission drive pulley, which is a huge undertaking.

Remove the pulley by removing the nut. I hold the pulley by squeezing the belt tight and using an impact wrench. You can then install new belt and tighten the nut.

Rivets: Man, I did it the hard way. Realizing that the pulley is in two parts, this technique you mentioned is the correct way and pretty much the only and logical way to do it. Thank you for setting my mind right, Sir. :)

The pulley shaft has a square end, you simply hold that with adjustable spanner and use a regular spanner on the nut (well, that is how I managed mine).
