Question about Toro Garden
The cover looks like it should just snap loose, maybe with a screwdriver, but I don't want to break anything. I was mowing when the self-propulsion feature suddenly quit woking. The drive belt does not appear to be broken, but is loose and the drive mechanism will not engage. Suggestions will be appreciated.
On my Toro recycler, I also had the front drive stop working -- and fixed it after reading the solutions here.
First, the plastic cover on the top deck that goes over the front drive mechanism must be loosened enough to pull it up. Before you can do that, on the underside there is one screw to take out.
Once that's done, all you have to do is pry the plastic cover up enough to see the belt and pulley that make up the front drive assembly. On mine, the belt had simply come off the pulley. Putting the belt back on, then tightening things back up is all it took to put the Toro back in sel-propelled happiness. Good luck!

There were TWO bolts/screws (10 mm; I used a 3" socket to remove); located underneath; one is near the front wheel, the other covered up with dried grass near the blade housing.
