Unfortuneatly, the drive belt is probably one of the more tedius items to replace on the xxx-s.
You will have to remove both diffs, un-link the steering rack, take out the spur gear assembly as well as remove the bottom "plate" that covers the belt on the underside of the chassis. Consulting the manual would be the best way to accomplish this.
