That is ****ing ridiculous!

I had one of those vids last year post service saying it needed swapping. No wonder it warranted a video.

Thanks for the recommendation peeps.

Looking to replace the idler and tensioner bearing too.

The conti one works out really cheap with the current "sale70" promotion at ECP. Only £13.97
Not bad value.

I assume the genuine Honda one is just way over priced.
Nice one mate thanks, I might go with the Gates one.

The Conti one on ECP has the part number 6 PK 1470 on the photo, yet the guy above who posted the picture of his is a 6 PK 1468.. are they different? Ha.

Brilliant - that's good to know. Was it the exact one from ECP I linked? Cheers

Hi Chuck,

Here's some photos, whatcha reckon

I'm going to do it anyway, it looks easy enough. Sounds like either will do the job, thanks guys.

While we're on the subject of belts and tensioners - this was a good "howto" for the bearings published the other day on DIYGuys

Fab video from DIY guys.

I might go for the Gates belt too for a couple quid more.
Always used gates belts on my previous Honda's timing belts and were very good.
Gates were the OEM supplier for older 90's Honda's timing belts
