1998 Accord EX V6 Serpentine Belt Tensioner...HELP !
I have a 1998 Accord EX V6 Coupe and I am trying to replace the tensioner pulley for the serpentine belt. I know I have to remove the entire tensioner assembly in order to replace the pulley because the bolt is too long to come out with the whole thing still installed. I have searched everywhere and found a diagram that shows there are 3 10mm bolts that need to be removed....I can only find 2. It looks like the third is located in the center of the tensioner but that is not a 10mm bolt it is an 8mm bolt and looks like it is used to get inside the tensioner where the preloaded spring is....so I am apprehensive about removing that one to see if it is the bolt still holding it on the motor....HELP!
