If needed, you can also loosen the ring on the side to make it easier to turn the axle. You can do this with a flat screwdriver in one of the teeth and some hits with a hammer. It is advised to do this carefully to not damage the bike or parts. Cover the head of the screwdriver with a cloth.

After you have loosened the tension on the belt you can guide the belt off the front chain wheel.

The belt should now be hanging only around the rear freewheel.
