    I split the thread to make it easier to follow and get more responses. It is not difficult. Remove the belt cover and move or remove the guide over the pulleys. Unbolt the crank mechanism from the auger housing and disconnect the auger cable if necessary. Now remove the two top bolts that secure the blower to the traction unit and tip the traction unit back while slipping the auger belt off the pulley (assuming it's not broken). This is easier with a helper.

    Not to be a pain but do you have a serial number for your machine? I took a look at the Ariens parts page and seems there have be a different versions of the ST824:
    https://parts.ariens.com/...=ARN#/s/ARN/ST824//1/y
     
    And note that if you have the model and serial number Ariens has many manuals available for free down loads, Parts, Owners and Repair Manuals. Some even in French or Spanish! Also note that ST824 is NOT a model number but a sales number, model number would be something like 924050. That should be on machine where the serial number is located.
     
    To see if they have your manuals for down load go to this page and fill in the numbers:
    http://apache.ariens.com/cgibin/ctrg0005?SESSIONID=zku40y0b1wsmiaaujbtspu2e&Site=ARIENSS
     
    One more link, If you need help finding or understanding the model and serial number try this link, note when I went to it it took a long time to open up:

    This video may help others as I'm sure you have figured it out by now, but I recently was looking into doing this and came across this which made me feel confident I could accomplish  it.  Hope it helps others.
