Default aux belt removal 2004 Accord ctdi

Hi,

How do I do this? Normally, I find a tensioner by pulling on the belt and
one of the pulleys moves. But everything is solid on this, do I need to
loosen something first?

Thanks

what does it say in the service manual? seriously dude, you shouldn't
be trying to do a job like that without the book telling you correct
procedure, torques, etc. especially not on a diesel.

I'm sure this is something that can be successfully described from one
decent mech who knows, to another?

yes indeed. in fact, there were a whole team of "decent mechs" that got
together to successfully describe exactly the information you seek -
when they wrote the service manual.

i know this is not what you want to hear dude, but the fact is, diesels
are much less forgiving than gasoline engines. if you don't follow
service procedures, particularly torques in the much more vibratory
diesel environment, you can have an extremely expensive learning curve
on your hands.

if you don't feel like buying the manual, and can't find a source
online, you can probably borrow one through you're local library's
inter-library lending system.

I see this is a diesel. North America, where I live, has no Honda diesels.

But if the belt system is constructed like most other newer Hondas, you put
a long wrench on the tensioner pulley, and use that to lever the tensioner
inwards to relieve tension on the belt. The tensioner is unlikely to move
just by pushing on the belt with your hand.

The tensioner has a wear gauge consisting of a couple of marks on its top
surfaces that need to be in alignment for the belt to be considered still-
good. See if you can find those marks.

For reasons of wear gauge calibration, the use of an OEM Honda serpentine
belt is highly recommended.

Thanks, actually, after spending some more time looking more closely, I
discovered that it is a completely normal spring loaded idler, just a great
deal more force needed to push against the spring than I've experienced
before (had to make up an extension on a 14mm ring spanner).

Well, I'm sure it wasn't there earlier but I see it now, very strange.

Thanks, I've sorted it out now.
