Default Grundig Satellit 650: worn rubber preselector drive belt

Goodmorning, I have a Sat 650 with a worn rubber preselector drive belt, when switch to automatic preselection often index don't reach right position. I have looked close at it and in effect have already some cracks and it has loosened. I have looked the encoder wheel and white tuning wheel how to pass through a new belt (apart white wheel have dial cords upon it too) but seems they are they are firmly inserted one inside the other. Put out the "C" holder don't have any resolutive action. Do you know procedure how to change it? Thank you F.

Can you please give more details and confirm the model number?

I have a lot of experience with this series, but not sure of the exact part. Also, haven't actually seen this exact model either. I have pulled the manual for it, and cannot locate the part you are alluding too. Is it to with the automatic drive from the digital tuner?

I think this is reference to the automatic drive to the AM preselector. Digitally select the desired frequency, press the central button, and the preselector drives somewhere close to the optimum point. Mine is "off-station" and has been for the last30+ years. I have never attempted to get it closer, as I rarely use it other than FM, my R3 wake up alarm.
There are no exploded views in the manuals, but the spares listing shows (I think) all the relevant parts, though I don't suppose that is any help to anybody today. Sorry, but once again the above refers to the Sat 600, but again, I think identical.
Apart from dismantling the minimum of parts to allow chassis removal from cabinet, I have not studied the drive assembly.

Ok I tried to contact this seller too, but I don't know how to put up since I cannot understand how I can slide belt between large white tuning wheel and encoder wheel since they are stick togheter. Main problem is this...

Model is a Grundig Satellit 650 Professional, but I think that rubber motor belt drive for automatic preselector is the same for all the 600/650 series. In the manual service is (29) 39721- 567.00 part.

Thank you for reply, F.
