  6. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have 140,000 miles on my 10 year old CRV. It is time to change the belt. I bought this truck at 92,000 miles and I doubt anything was done to it. I got a question about this job? Can changing a belt cause accessories that are driven by the belt to break down sooner on the Honda? I know it...

    hello people; 13V What color is your belt? With over 50K on my V I'm looking at things more and one being the belt. My belt color is not black but some sort of light color. Are the belts not black? IBBY
  8. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Driving my 2015 EX yesterday I heard a squealing noise that sounded like it was coming from a belt. After a while, the battery and AWD lights came on. I stopped at a friend's house to take a look under the hood and noticed the serpentine belt had come off and was sitting at the bottom of the...

    Hello all. It has been a while since my last post:cool:, but we steel here on Dominican Republic with our 2003 CRV, 4X4, 150k miles. This time I need some support to find out what is the correct size of the serpentine belt, once you swap the A/C Compressor. On my country (D.R.) the 2nd Gen...

    2008 95k miles bought new what is the mileage they recommend changing serpentine belt???
  12. Maintenance and Service
    AT 213,000 miles I have pushed my luck far enough with the original belt. Since Bando is the OEM honda supplier I'd like use that brand. What is the correct part number for 2006 auto EX. Also how hard to replace, looks a bit tight on space.

    Well, I have 163,000 miles on my 2009 CR-V and thought it would be about time to replace the serpentine belt. I had never done it before so I thought I'd put together a video as I did it. Hope it helps others, as I used no special tools. Comments welcome. Honda CR-V Serpentine Belt...
  15. Maintenance and Service
    Just replaced the serpentine belt in the 2009 CR-V today. The old belt looked worn, but the car was still running well. The OEM belt can be purchased on Amazon for around $20. Bando is Honda's OEM manufacturer for belts, so I would go with Bando over an off-brand like Gates or Dayco. Here is...

  17. Problems & Issues
    My 03 was making some noise near the serpentine belt, so I shut it off. When I restarted to see where the noise was the belt broke. I just got done changing it and the noise is still there. Funny thing is, it's louder when I turn the fan off. AC on or off doesn't seem to make much off a...
  18. Maintenance and Service
    Hi, first post. I just found out there is a small crack on the belt(see the picture attached), and the crack looks like this is a joint. But I guess the belt should be made in a whole and no joint at all. Should I replace this belt? Thanks.
  19. Maintenance and Service
    I checked the belt on the CR-V yesterday, and looked to see how one would go about replacing it when the time comes. I couldn't see a tensioner from the top though, is this something that has to be tackled fromunda? Only 25k on it now so not something I'll need to worry about any time soon, but...
  20. Maintenance and Service
    Been looking on this forum and google but could find nothing on the change interval for the serpentine belt. The belt looks fine and it is within spec per the marks. Everything operating smooth. I see a popular you tube video but shows previous gen. Local honda dealers of course advertise...
