I think my drive belt blew, and I'm not sure where to find it. Anyone had to change theirs yet, and if so, how do you get to it?

I bet you are not. Under the seats, sounds like a pain to change. I know some ppl swear if you break the belt in right it will last. The only thing I have ever had break a belt was if it got burnt or smoked, using high gear when driving to slow, and after it got water in the CVT case.

I'm just guessing its the belt, something popped and it was done. I did talk to my dealer and they are going to fix it under warranty so I'm not quite so mad. Glad I bought the extended service plan. On a brighter note I got a coupon for $150.00 worth of JD stuff in the mail today.

That's a nice little bonus incentive, I'll have to keep an eye on my mailbox but something tells me I won't see one.

Idk man. My belt blew up. I think by looking at all you have to take off to get to it, that just paid for my extended warranty. I never seen anything like it.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! That thing shredded up good. You have to take half the cockpit apart to change the belt. If JD is reading this, that is a fail in my book, other than that, no complaints here.

Gator is still in the shop, been two weeks, they found a broken clutch bolt. The threads were stretched like it was over torqued from the factory. Now they had to order a clutch removal tool to get clutch off.

I need to call my dealer and see if they have that tool. I would think when they sell equipment, that have the specialty tools to work on them, unless they don't have a service department.

Mine has to go back in for the PIPs, apparently they repaired mine under warranty but didn't do the upgrades, and the warranty runs out in a month so will get them to go over it from top to bottom.

Good idea!!!!!!!!! The PiPs are on deere's dime regardless of warranty period.
