#1: '99 Honda Accord noise/whine after cambelt replacement

Posted on 2006-07-20 01:23:29 by darglo

My Honda dealer just replaced a cambelt in my Honda Accord 1.8 Vreg.
Everything was fine until I started hearing a whine after done 300
miles since this sservice.
The service said, that it is typical and it's nothing to worry about,
but I let them to do the replacement one more time as a part of
guaranty.
Is it a problem of wrong adjustment of the belt they did ??

I hope you came accross this problem as well.

rubbish.

it's nothing for /them/ to worry about because they get to sell you
thousands of dollars of new valve gear when the belt snaps.

yes. belt adjusted too tight.

take it back and keep taking it back until they do it right. call
customer service at honda usa if you don't get satisfaction.
alternatively, find a different dealer or independent repair shop.
excess belt tension can lead to sudden failure, and that's expensive.
