    Depends on the condition of the tensioner.

    Not sure where the "replace tensioner" thing even came from. If it's functioning and bearings arent bad (pulley wobbling or grinding) there is absolutely no reason to change it and it's a giant waste of money. Unless it's bad it will effect nothing. So just leave it alone.

    The tensioner loses its ability to apply the correct tension to the belt resulting in slippage an inability to do its job.

    I just had the belt changed in the past few months.
    Now I have to do the tensioner, Firestone wants 300 or so to do the work
    so I'll do it with the help of my neighbor.
    A Gates unit is 60 and a Honda unit from Honda Online is 85.
    I think my new belt is a Dayco.

    Since I have to remove the power steering pump to get
    to the tensioner, I'll drain the pump and reservoir and refill
    with new Honda Power Steering Fluid.
    Even though I serviced the power service unit last year,
    taking a little more time and spending 10 or 15 dollars
    for new fluid is less expensive that a Rack and Pinion Unit.

    Okay, I have actually not heard of RockAuto. Is it legit?

    I realize my 06 CRV belt has the number 38920PNB004 or 7PK1732. I guess I'm a bit concerned with a $13 belt from RockAuto when I see other belts at $65, like this:
    https://www.hondapartsnow.com/genuin...0-pnb-004.html

    The belt is not something i want to go cheap on since failure means overheated engine and loss of power steering, very bad. I really need to get the absolute original Honda factory belt.

    thanks

    It is indeed legit. One of the better places to buy good quality parts. As for the price, that is called markup. Every time a product changes hands from the manufacturer, to the distributor, to the retailer and so on, the price goes up. Everyone has to get their cut. You can buy the same OE parts from somewhere else and get the exact same thing at a fraction of the price sometimes. You just have to do a little work to find out who the OE part manufacturer is so you know what to look for. The only thing that I go to the dealerships for are vehicle specific parts that you can't usually find anywhere else.

    In short, don't feel bad at all about paying $13 for the same belt the dealership sells for $65.

    Not just changing hands with dealership. They actually get parts extremely cheaply as a car brand is first to see them from warehouse. Unlike autoparts stores which have their own warehouses and all their stores. Dealerships like big chain auto shops mark their parts up ridiculously.

    Now the dealership MAY REFUSE to install a part you brought in and they are allowed to do that. They can tell you that you have to buy their part or they will not install a new one. And nothing you can do about it.

    I don't know good a 13 dollar belt is but you can get good quality
    belts for about 30 dollars.
