After removing the accessory belt and the timing belt cover, I aligned the timing marks as recommended. The tensioner pulley was simple to work with so the job went rather quickly. I also replaced the serpentine accessory belt at the same time. There is not a tool made to hold the tensioner pulley so I had to fabricate one out of a piece of steel. Once I did that, things with a lot more smoothly. I am a "part-time, self taught" mechanic and I did all the work myself with the aid of a repair manual. The local garages wanted $500-$600 to do the work.

This was a much more reasonable cost (from a Honda dealership in Pittsburgh) than I have ever seen before. I was expecting $800-$1000 to replace these belts and was pleasantly surprised to get this quote. The dealership is Shadyside Honda. They do great work.

lexus told me they would charge $890 for the timing belt, i called a toyota dealership and they were $100 less!! same quality work and parts without lexus on the garage door. any reasonable price is worth paying, because on these engines if the belt breaks it can cost thousands of dollars rebuilding the engine.

After reading the postings I feel that this quote is $200.00 too high. $935.00 for timing belt and water pump. Who knows if tensioners are needing replaced as well.
