HOw to remove dirve belt on Honda HRT216SDA MOwer

I need to remove the drive belt. There is a long bolt that goes through a spring above the transmission pulley and that looks like it needs to be loosened and the belt tension will decrease. Is that correct and when I put the belt back on are there any special instructions for re-tightening the bolt/spring. Thanks

The simple way: Measure how much of the threaded bolt is past the nut, then remove the bolt/nut/spring. Take the belt off, replace with an exact replacement, and reassemble the nut/bolt/spring and adjust until the same amount of thread is measured. It's not a terribly critical adjustment, you just want enough tension on the belt.

Thanks Cheese -- I wasnt sure if it was just a tensioner or an adjustment for the self propelled mechanism.
