Removal & Installation
Serpentine Belts
NOTE Refer to the Accessory Belt Routing Illustrations located earlier in this section for routing diagrams.

  1. Place a long-handled, boxed-end wrench or a belt tension release tool (A) on the drive belt auto-tensioner from above the engine. Slowly turn the wrench in the direction shown to release the tension, then remove the drive belt. WARNING This is a hydraulic type auto-tensioner; you must turn the wrench slowly.
  2. Install the new belt in the reverse order of removal.

It is very simple for most part. Not sure what model Civic you have, but you either have the 1.8 Liter or the 2.0 Liter engine, so I sent you both, very similar to one another. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.
