Accessory Belt Tensioner

Changed the accessory belt on the 2.4 LX this passed weekend and noticed the tensioner pulley has some bearing noise coming from it and doesn't spin too smooth. Anyone have any pics of the bolt locations on this tensioner so I can swap them out. Local Honda dealer wants $100 to replace it, not counting the part.

Thanks.

I changed my tensioner pulley once before and nnow, at 89000 miles, it seem like it going bad again. With the engine idling you can see the tensioner jumping. Here's a diagram:

Try replacing the pully off the tensioner first (number 7,6,5 and 12 above diagrahm). It is an easy one bolt removal replacement of the pully off the tensioner. Remove the pully off the tensioner while still on the car. I dropped the nut (number 12) located inside the pully so be carefull to not loose it when taking the pully out of the car. I don't remember the torque to put back on.

I am wondering how difficult this would be. I just need to replace the pulley. The belt is in great shape, however the pulley is annoying me. I live in Calgary Canada so we have some crazy fluctuating temperatures, and anything below 5C the thing whines like a superchager. Although after 165,000KM of trouble free aggressive driving, I am pretty content. I initially thought it was just the belt needing some lube, but lubing the belt only made the whine go away temporarily.

If you just change out the pully (not the tensioner) it is very easy. Rent a tensioner tool at your local auto parts store to remove tension from belt. Tool is basically a long handle with a socket on the end. Then remove the one bolt going though pulley (careful the nut for the pully will fall out and get lost in the engine compartment if you don't remove the roller (pulley) carefully. The nut is located inside the pulley. Good Luck

Then remove the one bolt (7) going though pulley (careful the nut for the pulley (12) will fall out and get lost in the engine compartment if you don't remove the roller, bolt and pulley carefully. The nut is located inside the tensioner. You have to go by feel to hold nut in place when reinstalling the pulley and bolt. Leave the nut in the tensioner if possible but hold the back of the nut when reinstalling or it drops into nowheres ville. Good Luck

Thanks, When I was searching the forum I noticed you came across the same issue, did changing the pulley take away the noise?

$69.49 shipped for the entire assembly from . Do it once, do it right, the first time. I did mine after 100k with the serpentine belt. I like working on my own car but not too often.

I would not remove the assembly (#4 above) if your only changing out the pulley (#5)? The pulley can be chaged out with out removal of the assembly.
