Note: If you do not follow these steps, it will result in the printer not homing correctly, and can damage the print bed or extruder head.
Remove filament, as per filament change instructions.

Remove small hex screw at the top of the extruder head.

Good to go
Adjust Belt Tension
Tightening the belt is hard, but this is the workflow that I found that worked:
loosen up the screws on the bearing that holds the belt
push that bearing forward so it loosens up the belt
undo the screw that holds one side of the belt, and pull it tighter. You'll have to hold everything in place or the bed will just slide
tighten the end of the belt down
tighten the bearing back down
if the belt is too tight now, loosen the end and let a little slack in until it seems good
It's a lot easier to add slack back in than tighten it down.
