  1. 2005 CRV EX idler pulley and tensioner question

    Problems & Issues
    This is a bit off the wall, as I'm still learning this car. Today's quest is to tune up the a/c. Had been going warm at a stop, but today its ice cold. Hmm, anyway, I'm trying to track down some weird noises when the a/c is on. It seems to be related to the compressor cycling. Of course...
  2. Water pump pulley

    Recalls, TSB's & Notices
    Yesterday while slowly pulling away from a stop sign, my water pump pulley broke away from its hub. I lost power steering, charging and of course engine cooling. Has anyone else experienced this? The pulley has the "Gates" logo stamped in it. There is 114,000 miles on the car. It is a 2008 LX.
  3. Replacing AC compressor pulley and clutch

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey Guys, So the past two days i've been working on replacing the ac pulley since the bearing is shot and the car grinds when running. Clutch came out with ease, but the pulley was a PITA. I soaked it in WD40 and used a combination of pry bar, screw driver, and a hammer on screw driver / pry...

    Is a new tensioner pulley suppose to have spin slower (or show some resistance) compared to a worn pulley? I know that's a rule of thumb on BMW puleys but not sure everyones experience on Honda. Thanks!
  5. Mystery pulley

    Problems & Issues
    Can anybody identify this pulley, and how to remove? A Honda part number would be good too. Looks like an idler, but I can't find any reference to this pulley on any of the Honda parts diagrams at any of the online parts stores, even Honda's. All they show is the tensioner pulley, which this is...

  8. Air Conditioner Pulley Sheared Off

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    '98 CRV Timing belt changed in 8/13.

    I bought a set of ebay lightweight pulley. They are the 3 piece set but I am just going to be using 2/3 pulley since the alternator one is a pain in the ass to get to on these cars. Easiest way to get the crank pulley bolt off is to pull the fuel pump fuse and put a 19mm impact stock on the...
  11. 2006 CR-V EX FWD - Idler Tension Pulley Replacement?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello CR-V Gurus! I've got a 2006 CR-V EX FWD that is starting to chirp or squeak. Not sure it is just the serpentine belt or if maybe it could be the tensioner pulley? It has 135K miles. And It only does this when the motor is cold. After it warms up the noise seems to disappear. Any ideas?

  14. Belt and pulley squeak noises

    Problems & Issues
    It is extremely hard to pin point which pulley it is that causes the belt noise. I try to look to see where the belt rides. I have also removed the belt just to be able to spin the pulleys that I can. The mileage was at 120,000 plus so I opted to change out the belt tensioner and installed a new...
