You are watching: John deere 245 drive belt replacement
The traction Drive Belt on my GT245 broke yesterday (Part # M127523). I need any help available in replacing it. Could someone please help me.

I found it much easier to take the fender body...and the deck off.Remove the seat and then just 4 screws to give you almost complete access.

If that machine is anything like a GX, it makes it easier (and the manual calls for it) to take off the transmission fan. You will also need to manage the belt tension pulley. MAKE SURE that you have a good handle on keeping the spring/idler under control while you thread the belt on it. It"s a pretty honkin" spring!

I agree, if you can pull the fenders then its a good idea. Makes the belt change easy and good time to clean debris from the top of hydro My old 345 was like a zipper in that process for me. I could have the pedals loose, deck knob pulled and a few bolts out and fender off in a few minutes.Pretty sure the 245 is the same setup.
