belt tensioner?
anyone else replace the belt tensioner assembly and drive belt on a 2000/2001 gts to rid themselves of a chirping/sqealing noise from that area of the engine?


disabling me will result in loss of primary power.

Dealer did it twice under warranty. I use Prestone dressing from Walmart whenever I get any type of squeak now. It holds up as well as a belt change (my warranty is gone). Mine only starts to sqeak after a long period of rain.

I have once under warranty...if you dont have warranty, go with dvs1's method of using a belt dressing, or your looking at about 400 bucks to have it replaced by the dealer

I've had mine replaced about 5 months ago, and haven't had a problem since

Mine just started making noise last week. It only does it when the car has been sitting for a long time like early in the morning. Does this mean that mine is going bad??????
I still got warrenty left.


I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

turn your car on and open your Hood to see where the noise is coming from

I am on my 4th one. When the dealrship replaces it the parts and labor has a year warranty even if your car doesn't have warranty.

I think that I've found the noise. It's the belt under the large plastic piece on the passengers side. Does this mean that I need to get it replaced??
