Replace motion Drive Belt Craftman 917.28974

I need to replace the motion drive belt on a Craftsman 917.28974 garden tractor and following the instructions in the manual they seem to be incomplete as the belt seems to go around the steering rod which goes through the steering plate and the instructions don't reference this at all.

Unless I am missing something, it seems the only way to get the drive belt on or off would be to remove the steering rod - is this correct? If so, what are the correct steps? Is there an amendment to the manual?

Thanks very much for any assistance.
