2004 Honda Odyssey Belts

6 posts in this topic

I know the main belt has a tensioner that I need to buy a torx head for. Does anyone know what size? Where is the tensioner for the AC belt? I looked but couldn't find it. I don't think it has a tensioner like the main belt but there must be a bolt or something to loosen to get the AC belt off.

V-6?

The power steering pump is on its own belt. You will loosen one mounting bolt and one nut for the pump then look kind of behind it and there will be a bolt with nut sitting vertical. That is the adjusting nut.

The other belt has a hydraulic belt tensioner deal and if I remember right there is a spot near or on the bracket assembly for either a 17 or 18mm wrench or socket with a long handle breaker bar if there is room. You will have to push like there is no tomorrow to get the tensioner to move.

I think you have to pull the motor mount to change the P/S belt also.

How many miles are on the van I very rarely change belts on these before 105,000 miles and then they get changed with the timing belt and a lot of them probably don't need replaced then either just cheap insurance since they come off anyways.

I didn't replace the belts on my Honda Prelude until the alternator went out at 190k. Figured they where off already might as well get it done.

At 75000 miles I personally would not replace them unless there is a problem. Just hold off for 30k more and have them done with the t-belt.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
