Rega Planar 2 service issues?

Has anyone ever replaced the motor suspension belt (NOT the drive belt) on a Rega Planar 2 turntable? Is it a tricky operation, or is it pretty straightforward?

On my Rega, as soon as I install the drive belt, the tension pulls the motor all the way over until it contacts the base, creating a small rumble problem. Do I assume correctly that replacing the motor suspension belt will fix this?

Thanks.

All I get to at the first link is Rega's UK web site, which has precious little information on "legacy" Rega products. The current P2 has a rigidly-mounted motor instead of the Planar 2's suspended arrangement. I'm not willing to spend $150 for the motor upgrade at this time, in lieu of a $15 belt.
