AutoZone has this available on line. The water pump is here, and the timing belt is here.

Changing the air conditioning belt on a 1997 Honda crv

Depending upon the authority of the person who told you the belt needs replacement, it may or may not be true. If your '97 CR-V is running with the original belt, it is way past replacement time.

Timing belt

Nancy, the Honda recommendations are to change belt 100,000 Km/ 60000 miles or every 7 years which ever occurs first. So if timing belt has not been changed, YES change it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Shop says my 2002 Honda CR-V needs to have a camshaft position sensor replaced. Can you tell me where it's located and if I can replace it myself? I have some knowledge from working on my own vehicles. ...

The TDC sensor (aka camshaft position sensor) is located under the same cover as the timing belt. Incidently, the water pump is also driven by the timing belt. The process for replacement of the TDC is not difficult, just involved. Here is a link that I hope you will find helpful; It gives step-by-step instructions with photos on how to change the TDC. This is for a civic, but the setup for the CR-V is essentially the same. If you have high mileage, you will also want to check the condition of the timing belt and water pump while you have everything apart. If you decide to replace the other parts as well, you will need the associated gaskets, timing belt, water pump and belt tensioner.
If your computer will not let you click on the link directly, you can copy and paste it to your address bar.

Good luck and God Bless.

How do you replace the timing belt?

Not going to like my answer here, but without any expertise in auto mechanics, I would caution you to let someone else do it. In most cases, (don't know this specific car), involves removal of water pump, pretty extensive work. And often should do other work at same time.

(as an example, in 1990s Honda Accords, it was advised to change the water pump when replacing the timing belt. All of the labor was already there, just a "relatively" small charge for the water pump itself.)

Instructions to change a timing belt would be to difficult to post here. If you have a strong desire to do it yourself, get a manual like Chiltons or Hayes with instructions and pictures.
