  3. Using a spudger, separate the back cover from the front.
    • Using a spudger, separate the back cover from the front.

    • Remove the back cover evenly on all sides. The best method is to insert the spudger and gently twist it slightly to separate the two parts, slowly working your way around the entire outer shell.

    • Replace the band, ensuring that it wraps around both large plastic revolvers and the small metal one.

    Would be useful to see the path of the band around these parts.

I need to know the belt track. I'm thinking there is a particular path the belt must follow. Do you know it? Your photo shows no belt (band).
