How do I replace the drive belt on my craftsman yts 3000 model no. 917.289220?

My Craftsman riding mower model Number 917.289220 YTS 3000 quit moving. It would not move in forward or reverse. I shut the mower down and investigated and found that the drive belt (not the blade belt) which is located above the mower deck had broke. I reached up and pulled it out, ordered a replacement belt online and just received it today. I now need to know how to replace the belt. I can't seem to be able to find my owners manual so I don't know if it has step by step directions or not. I just purchased the mower a year ago and I even purchased the extended warranty. I don't have a good place to work on the mower since it broke down at the bottom of the hill in my back yard. I don't think I have the strength to push it up the hill. Is there a step by step instruction manual that can walk me through the replacement of this drive belt?

I found the Manual to your Mower in Manage My Life under the Manuals button. I suggest you take a look at page 24 and there are instructions on how to change the drive belt. I attached the link below. Hope this helps.
