Below is a diagram of the drive belts. You can see the adjusting bolt. Loosen the bolt to release tension on the pulleys to enable you to slip the new belt(s) on. Once on, apply pressure to tighten the belts while tightening the adjusting bolt. Best of luck.

    just reread your question. Your car showed up as a 2002 Sentra. Here is the diagram for the 98 Civic. The procedure is the same.

Help changing alternator on 1998 honda civic. how do you remove the belt or is there a belt?


The alternator has a bolt that is adjustable to keep tension on the belt. There should be a single bolt that is fixed, and probably another that sits in a slot in the bracket that allows adjustment. You'll loosen the bolt in the bracket slot and give the belt some slack, and it should come off the pulley. When replacing, you may have to have someone help pull the alternator so it puts tension on the belt, and then you can tighten it down. I have seen some vehicles that have a bolt that will turn in or out to either tighten the alternator or loosen it.

Set timing on a 98 honda civic dx


"The crankshaft timing pointer must be perfectly aligned with the white mark on the flywheel or flex-plate; the camshaft pulley must be aligned so that the word UP is at the top of the pulley and the marks on the edge of the pulley are aligned with the surfaces of the head.
Install the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioners.
Loosen the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner. Loosen, then tighten the timing belt adjusting nut.
Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise until the cam pulley has moved 3 teeth; this creates tension on the timing belt. Loosen, then tighten the adjusting nut and tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Tighten the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner.
Realign the timing belt marks, then install the balancer belt drive sprocket on the crankshaft.
Align the front balancer pulley; the face of the front timing balancer pulley has a mark, which must be aligned with the notch on the oil pump body. This pulley is the one at 10 o'clock to the crank pulley when viewed from the pulley end.
Align the rear timing balancer pulley (2 o'clock from the crank pulley) using a 6 x 100mm bolt or rod. Mark the bolt or rod at a point 2.9 in. (74mm) from the end. Remove the bolt from the maintenance hole on the side of the block; insert the bolt or rod into the hole. Align the 2.9 in. (74mm) mark with the face of the hole. This pin will hold the shaft in place during installation.
Install the balancer belt. Once the belts are in place, be sure that all the engine alignment marks are still correct. If not, remove the belts, realign the engine and reinstall the belts. Once the belts are properly installed, slowly loosen the adjusting nut, allowing the tensioner to move against the belt. Remove the pin from the maintenance hole and reinstall the bolt and washer.
Turn the crankshaft 1 full turn, then tighten the adjuster nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Remove the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner."

There are three belts on my sons 95 honda and we need to change the alt belt, the first one of the 3 of course, how do we go about it


10mm Socket
12mm Socket & Wrench
14mm Socket & Wrench

Loosen the Tension bolt
Loosen the Pivot Nut
Loosen the Mounting Nut

Push it down to the point of relieving the old belt so you can take it off. You might have to carefully pry the alternator down to get it to pivot enough for removal and installation of new belt, depending on rust, etc. The new belt, make it pretty tight, it should wiggle with about 1/4 of an inch of play Too loose it will squeak, too tight it will fail early.

1998 civic speedo broke


More likely to be the speedo drive in the transmission or a faulty speed sensor that is electronic i would be guessing here as 98 was the change over year for civic so it depends which transmission is fitted. Don't rip the dash to pieces just yet as i'm guessing this will just create more trouble. Steve Baldam in the UK

How to loosen the serpentine belt


If you look at the spring tensioner on the belt, there is a 3/8 square hole in the support arm.
Use a ratchet wrench, or breaker bar in the hole, and release the tension. Once it's loose, you can remove the belt.
