Question about 2004 Honda CR-V
Would like to know how to properly install the tensioner. Also, should I buy a new tensioner? And do I replace the front cam seals too? Thanks Matt
1. Remove the 14mm bolt.
2. Remove the spring holding onto the tensioner
3. Remove the tensioner
4. Installation is the reverse.
I install a new tensioner with every timing belt job.
If you have more than 130K miles, I would replace the cam seals. Its extra insurance against future leaks.
