This is a multi-step operation.

First, go get the belt. While you are at it, you can change the bulb and change or cleaner the beater/roller. And how about some new bags?

You need a large flat head screw driver to press all the tabs to get the thing apart, and to stretch the belt onto the pin, also. You need a pair of sturdy scissors to get the beater clear of all the stuff that has wrapped around it. The inside of the vac is dusty and dirty, so a damp rag is helpful.

First unplug the machine. Clear off a large table (big enough to lay the vac down flat) and put down some newspapers, a lot of dust and dirt spills as you disassemble.
Next remove the little slide tab that sets the rug heights on the top of the hood. Then detach the hose for the accessories. Both lift off/out with a bit of a wiggle. Set aside.

Round 1: Remove, and clean beater. Replace beater and belt.
Set vac on its side on the table. On the bottom there are two tabs near the beater, one on either side. My machine has an embossed screw driver pointing to one, and the other is in the same place on the other side.
Press the tabs toward the back of the machine to unclick them. Lift the beater cover off, rotating toward the hinge tabs at the front of the machine, then lifting out. Set aside. Using equal pressure on both ends, lift out the beater, then the broken belt.
Take a few minutes to thoroughly clean off the beater.
Put the new belt around the beater. Drop the loose end through the hole you will see, where it came out in the first place.
TRICK!!! The beater has rectangular, NOT square or round, pins. It will not snap all the way in unless you line up the rectangles with the slots, and the cover will not fit back on.
Put in the 2 hinge tabs tabs from the cover into the slots at the front of the machine, rotate down and snap the cover into place, you will hear the clicks.

Round 2: Remove hood, fasten belt, replace hood.

Make sure the rug height slider is off and the accessory hose is disconnected.
Turn the machine hood side up, release the step tab on the back that lets the handle drop and drop it back as far as it will go. I put a pillow or box under it to keep it steady, as it does not go quite flat.
There are 4 places you have to press on the underside with your big screw driver to loosen the hood:
Two are near the front wheels on either side. These are little peg-like things that have to be pressed IN to allow you to move the hood up.
Two are near the back. These just stick out a little and the hood snaps on, so to loosen these, you use the screwdriver to bend the hood itself out just a little so you can lift it up and away. It tends to be difficult on the side where the accessory hoe goes in, and you can't get the hood off at all if the accessory hose is still attached.
OK. you got the hood off. Clean out all the dust bunnies that have accumulated. Change the bulb, if you are going to; it pulls straight out and pushes straight in.
To stretch the very tight hose over the pin, you catch the belt flat near the tip of the screwdriver, stretch it carefully in the channel (there is a plastic corner that likes to try to catch it and block it from going into the channel). Then put the tip of the screw driver directly behind the pin and slide the belt over the pin. The belt is VERY stiff and you will need the leverage from the screwdriver/pin to stretch it all the way.

Snap the hood back on, reconnect the accessory hose, replace the rug height slider. Put a fresh bag in (have you tried the new Febreeze allergy prevention bags?) The extra belt and bag will fit under the new bag in the back of the machine.

Plug it in and be amazed at how much better it is cleaning.
