How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Honda Accord?
It's an LX 4cyl. Its actually had 2 belts next to each other that I'm looking to replace. I do not see a tensioner so do I just remove the Alternator pulley to replace or what?How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Honda Accord?I think on this car the Alternator tensions one of the belts and the Power steering pump tensions the other one. You do not remove the pulleys, you need to loosen(do not remove) like 2 or 3 bolts on the ps pump and then the pump should slide and the belt should come off. Same story with the alt...but im sure that only has two bolts....one of them is under the alt and you can reach it easier from underneath. Good luck!How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Honda Accord?That engine doesn't have tensioners instead it has brackets that are slotted. All you need to do is loosen (dont remove) the bolts. Probably a 12mm and move the alternator and or power steering pump. This will take the tension off the belt so you can remove it.How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Honda Accord?the one on the left
