View Full Version : Replacing V-Belts on Accord
02-08-2008, 04:44 PM
I'll probably be replacing the V-belts on my 1992 Accord sometime soon. I'm a noob, and this will be the first time I ever replaced V-belts. There's 2 belts: 1 for alternator and A/C compressor, and one for the PS pump. It looks like theres 2 bolts underneath the PS pump that adjust the tension of the belt, and 2 more bolts near the alternator for that belt. Is it just a matter or tightening the bolts to get the belt off and then loosen them to re-tighten them? Also, how will I know when there's enough tension on them?

you loosen the bolt to loosen the belt, and its tight when u cant twist the belt more than a quarter turn

OK here's a little update: I tried loosening those bolts, and they didn't do anything. I looked all around the PS pump and the alternator, and there are no other bolts that can possibly adjust the tension. So....I'm lost. Can anyone show me pics of where the damn tensioners are on this car? Stupid friggin Hondas, everything is always more complicated than it has to be.
