The swine is still making an occasional squeal on cold start first thing, mechanic did mention the auto tensioner had some play in it....lowest price for the part I've found is £175 as opposed to Honda's £230 unless anyone knows cheaper? the part number is 31170-PCX-003

It might be the idler pulley or tensioner bearing rather than the tensioner itself?
Have you tried removing the belt and checking the idler pulleys themselves?
But as it is squealing upon start up it may mean that the tensioner it not tight enough anymore.
Where does the indicator sit at the moment on the tensioner?

I assume the tensioner you found at £175 is the one from htune
https://h-tune.co.uk/genuine-honda-a...ner-f20c-f22c/

Here are the idler pulley and the pulley for the tensioner

https://h-tune.co.uk/genuine-honda-idler-pulley-s2000/

https://h-tune.co.uk/genuine-honda-b...g-honda-s2000/

I would wait until black Friday as htune does a 10% or slightly more i think discount on that day across their website.

If you can't wait - use BOOSTED as a discount code and you will get a handy 2.5% off
Not much but its something.

Hope this helps

Look at the Vid on post #17, shows how to change the £10 bearing, bit cheaper than the whole thing.

Whilst pulling the tensioner to release, could clearly see it kind of moved up & down too, the original belt had the marker showing towards the right, new belt fitted and its back to the start point.

6203 2RS bearings (SKF ones) are cheap here

NTN Version of the bearing here

Just in case you haven't got the additional socket tools.
The only tool I have in my tool collection is a 19mm deep socket.

19mm deep socket

26mm deep socket
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Silverlin...YZEX:rk:1:pf:0

1- 1/8" socket
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sealey-1-...YAAOSwkNpabYgy

1- 13/16" socket
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-13-16-3...IAAOSwlndZA4br

Works out to be around £39.08 including the x2 SK bearings.
Not bad costs overall. You can probably find the bits cheaper if you searched hard.
Be best to find cheap as possible as it would most likely be used only for this.

What you guys think of the NTN bearings compared to SKF?

Just ordered the bearings, but the seller sent me the c3 version of the 2RS.
Would the c3 larger internal race clearance still be ok?

Yes I wouldn't worry to much, think I have seen a few others using C3 as well.
