    changing serpentine belt on 06 CRV

    My 06 CRV has 130k miles, I think I'm due for a change of serpentine belt before it breaks on me in the middle of nowhere right?

    I saw this:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-OEM...GLLh:rk:3:pf:0

    It seems to be OEM, Made in Japan, but kinda pricey at $80

    I saw some Bando ones for $25 and I wonder if they are good enough:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/SERPENTINE-...S!-1:rk:1:pf:0

    Also, I heard changing the belt is a pain so I'm going to have my mechanic do it. He said he'll charge $70 for labor.

    Please advise. thanks

    Never heard of Bando. Another case of eBay junk?

    You should always replace the tensioner at the same time. With that in mind, look at the kits including belt and tensioner by well known brands for less the Oem belts https://www.rockauto.com/

    Absolutely not. I'm pretty sure that Bando is one of the OE manufacturers of these accessory belts for Honda, Mitsubishi, and Toyota. Maybe some of the others too. They have been making belts for a long time. Bando Chemical Industries has been around for over 100 years. Actually kind of surprised you haven't run across any of their belts before.

    7PK1732 is the Bando part number for the belt that fits the CRV. Rock Auto has it listed as the OE replacement for $13.80.

    They sell counterfeit Bando belt on eBay. Ymmv.

    I like Gates, Goodyear, or Dayco replacement belts. I've not heard of Bando either. But, I see it has the HEART on the RockAuto listing, which makes it a favorite. So I would consider it.

    ISTR that the OEM belt on our Japan-produced '06 had Mitsubishi markings.

    Regards replacement difficulty, it wasn't too hard for me, but I bought the Serpentine Belt Tool. You MIGHT be able to get a free rental from an auto parts store.

    Harbor Freight sells item#63689 for ~$18.

    They sell counterfeit everything on eBay. That’s why I don’t buy things like that from eBay. You can get the same belt from rock auto for $10 less anyway.

    Maybe it’s just the industries I’ve been exposed to, but I’ve been seeing and using Bando belts for decades.

    Please consider replacing hoses as well at the same time as the belt for the same reasons.

    Don't buy from eBay, EVER.

    As for Bando, I can't believe our admins haven't heard of the brand. Not mainstream in the US but they are OEM for most Japanese branded vehicles. Bando I have found cheaper than US brands and same maybe better quality. That's what's on both our Hondas. Only other belts I will use is GATES. Won't touch anything else unless I'm in a bind.

    That looks appealing, does "OE" replacement means it's the same belt as originally installed in the factory?
