Honda Belt Replacement
Genuine Honda drive belts and timing belts are designed to resist stretching and deterioration for maximum durability and performance.
Depending on the model, the drive belt operates the water pump, the alternator, and the power steering pump. It also drives the air conditioning compressor on A/C equipped vehicles. Belt replacement is necessary if the belt becomes worn, damaged, or as the rubber deteriorates due to age or contamination. Belt failure can result in engine overheating, loss of power steering, inoperative charging system, and A/C problems. We recommend replacing the drive belt in your Honda every 7 years or 105,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
The timing belt drives the engine’s camshaft(s) to open and close the intake and exhaust valves at the proper time. On some Honda engines, the timing belt also drives the water pump to circulate the engine’s coolant. The timing belt is a vital component and should be serviced to ensure functionality of internal engine components. We recommend replacing the timing belt in your Honda every 7 years or 105,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
