Nothing wrong with the product at all but i urge other people intending to replace their broken fan belt to first check that they can dis-asemble the bottom first. You need to do this to replace the belt. As other reviewers have said (after the fact doh), the screws are completely degenerated underneath and even with wd40 and an a brush with an electric wire brush did not enable removal. There is also a screw that is inset about an inch which i couldnt even get tonothing wrong with this product though and service impecablewhat i will do is blob some silicone on the next mower to ensure this does not happen again.
I was rather pleased with the prompt service and delivery of the flymo 350correct replacement drive belt. The fitting, if you have the correct ‘torx head’ screwdriver, is relativelyeasy. However, my flymo 350 (age 14 months) continues to sound poorly.

Comments from buyers
“Installation of the belt was easy enough as taking a Flymo apart these days takes , Quick delivery in a emergency. Fantastic., One of the simplest repairs I have ever done”
Excellent product great saving.
Good luck trying to get the engine housing off if your mower is the same as ours.
Required a new belt, my husband only buys the correct belt for our flymo mower, he says you buy a different model it won’t work.
Once you have worked out what to take off and where and relates to a compact 300. Taking the screws off of the motor casing and undoing the nut for the blade and spacers (very simple with the flymo spanner) allows access to the four screws anchoring the motor/wheel unit. This then allows the motor/wheel unit to pop out and changing the belt, in my case already snapped, was simpler than trying to stretch a rubber band. It is an exact fit, so takes a few tries to get it on, but after that it is as simple as reassembling and making sure everything is tightened up. It does state that despite it being an original flymo part that changing it yourself will invalidate a warranty, irrelevant in my case, and, as long as you ensure the unit isn’t plugged in while working on it, i can’t see that if your mower isn’t working that anyone that knows at the least how to use a screw driver couldn’t fix a snapped belt themselves at a much smaller cost than taking it to a repair centre.
Genuine flymo drive belt just what i needed.
Easy to fix to a flymo which needed a replacement belt.
My granddaughter broke the belt on her mover, we ordered the belt and my husband fitted it, it saved her buying another mower, great being able to get spare parts in a throw away world.
Purchased a flymo glider g330 in may 2017 and just two days ago the drive belt shredded whilst in use. Installation of the belt was easy enough as taking a flymo apart these days takes about 10mins tops. Just make sure you have a torx driver to had as i needed a t25 to get 6x screws off the chassis. Hopefully this belt will last longer than the stock g330 belt but going by these reviews i doubt it. I’ll edit this review in future with an update. Update: 05/06/18 – as per included photo, the belt has already broken after just two mowing attempts on a small lawn. So we’re left with a next to useless mower purchased in 2017 that can’t even survive on a flymo branded authentic belt. Time to look elsewhere for a direct drive mower.
It does what it’s designed to do, can’t complain.
Brings an old mower back to life.
Genuine replacement belt for flymo easiglide 300. Fitting was a bit fiddly but after finding how to do it on youtube it was fitted and working as expected within 20 minutes.
Genuine product at a competitive price. Was easy to fit, as long as you had the correct tools to take the mower apart. The lawnmower is now working well.
Genuine flymo drive belt a durable and reliable replacement.
Bought this belt as i needed a replacement for my flymo glider 330 belt after it snapped after 6 years of use leaving my lawn looking like it had a mohican. This was a emergency purchase and came very next day. I have changed it over and used this no problems. One thing i didn’t realise is that you can’t undo the motor cover on flymo’s with a normal screwdriver or allen keys so had to purchase a set of long handle torx keys from amazon too for about £6. So check out your mower as well before ordering in case you need a set of those too. Its like a star shaped screw hole. Lots of ‘how to’ vids on youtube how to swap it over.
Solved the problem, mover working now.
It’s difficult to write a great long essay on this product . However, i put a lot of time in prior to ordering to make sure that i ordered the exact same drive belt as the one that needed replacing. I was very reassured when i received a belt that looked exactly the same , with all the same writing on it. The belt therefore fitted perfectly and i was well chuffed with having completed the repair myself – with the aid of flymo’s interweb video.
Not too difficult to replace and put back together. On an easy glide 330vx you will need some ‘star’ bits to get some of the screws out. Also one screw can be easy to miss, grass/dirt clogs it up visually so don’t try to force body apart thinking it must just click into place. . Check for that hidden screw.
It’s very easy and simple to replace.
Worked perfect, saved my lawnmower.
Value for money and a perfect replacement.
Good quality belt,easy to fit,mower worked fine after fitting.
