Once you have done this, you should look for the blue or red ‘plug’ that fits into the slots on the right hand side of the engine. You should remove the main chain guide with a socket or wrench and use it to unscrew the clutch.

The clutch itself is held in place by two large screws that you should carefully move until they are free from the central motor housing. Remove these and the cage that cover it.

Next, remove the simple bolt that secures the right hand side of the clutch to the engine. Once this is removed, you can gently pull the clutch away from the motor housing.

Place the new belt onto the marks and place it in the correct position on the pulley. Now you should reattach the gear and the chainsaw.
