Default `92 Integra GSR VTEC

I'm changing my timing belt and everything is going smooth until......the
14mm tensioner bolt won't loosen. At this point I have to ask, does this
loosen cw or ccw? I am close to rounding the head, which would not be good.

Ok...for those that didn't know it's CCW.

Were you using a 6 point or 12 point socket?

Many Acura/Honda tensioner bolts are nearly impossible to remove. The last
one
I replaced required the use of an air hammer. The shoulder of the bolt is
too shallow
to get a good grip and often strips even when using a high quality 6 point
socket.
Once it is removed it's a good idea to replace it with a bolt that will be
easier
to remove in the future and torque it to factory specs. It loosens CCW.

Good luck.

Unfortunately I was using a 12 point box end wrench and 12 point
socket. The bolt is slightly rounded now so I ordered that Craftsman
socket set that supposedly removes bolts like this.

It worked! Praise be unto Bob Villa!
Me being the skeptist, really didn't think it would work...but I'll be
damned if the tool didn't bite right into it and take the tensioner bolt
out. Now onto finishing up the timing belt and hoping to God that there's
no damage to the engine from the belt break.
