commander belt replacement

I started the thread "Do I have to baby this thing" Today the dealership replaced my belt and as they are good guys they called me to come and watch.
It's not something you will do without the right tools. The drivers seat comes out, the top plastic cover comes off, (you need a Torks screwdriver for this) and two more plastic covers on the drivers side, they have a nifty little tool to pull the many little buttons.
Then off comes the clutch cover, you need a long !/4" extension and a universal socket (I didn't get the size) to get to the bottom screw.
You can roll the belt off. There are 3 holes in the driven sheave, only one has threads, you screw a long threaded screw (factory tool) into this hole to spread the sides enough to get the new belt on. The belt is directional and there is an arrow on it to point forward.
It might be done without the spreader screw if you had the right thickness wooden block to keep the sides of the clutch sheave from closing up before you roll the belt off.
I think I would probably take close to an hour doing it, with the right tools, so I guess I will add them to my tool kit.
I hope this is some help to the new Commander owners

How many hours/miles were on it that you had to replace the belt?

Took my belt off to inspect its condition and clean the housing it took me about 15 min. to get the plastic off and the belt off. That is a 8mm X 1.25 threads bolt about 70 mm long will open the pulley.
590 miles and 49 hours and only a rear shock leak so far!!!

I had less than 5hrs on the belt, I was trying to climb over a log, smoke came out & I backed off. A few days later I was stuck in a mudhole and got some more smoke, this was in 4 wheel drive low range with the tires spinning.
By the way, those are great videos on how to change a belt
