  3. 2007 crv timing belt or timing chain -questions

    Problems & Issues

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    Gearheads: This long video does an awesome job in describing how the steel belt used in a CVT is designed and built. Unlike a normal belt, it's actually a "push belt" with small metal elements attached to a flexible ring pack so the driving pulley literally pushes the belt against the driven...

    Hey folks, The rubber on the belt molding (the horizontal trim on the OUTside of the window, mounted to the top of door) on my '98 is shot. I live in CO so the snow is melting down into the inside of the door causing problems. The paint has flaked off long ago. Not worried about appearances...

  20. Belt tensioner wrench--what have you used?

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    I am replacing the tensioner pulley, and noticed there is very little room to get tools in there to get at the bolt. I am guessing that once the belt is disengaged, the tensioner rotates enough to get a socket wrench on. But otherwise, the space between the chassis and tensioner pulley is...
