Murray drive belt for model 40705x99a

I haven't been able to figure out how to replace the drive belt on a Murray riding mower model 40705X99A. Can someone please help? I have a belt, just can't figure out how to get it around the Q2 Pulley and route it properly. The previous belt shredded.

Thanks!

Put the belt on the engine pulley first and lock the brake pedal down, it should then go around the others easily.

IPL looks like routing is pretty simple. Around Q2 23 on transaxle , inside idler 23 and up to engine. As cheese said putting brake on should move idler out and give slack. You try on q2 first and then the engine. Pull sparkplug so you can rotate engine pulley as you put the belt on it. There may be guides that need removing to allow space for belt to go on the pulleys.
