    There is a small rubber grommet on the timing cover you can remove to gain direct access to the tensioner bolt.

    You will still want to remove the valve cover and upper timing cover (two bolts) to be able to see the gears and belt when you are doing it.

    yep saw the rubber grommet and understand that releases the tensioner bolt but removing the timing cover was the biggest pain to get off (talking about the P/S pump bracket needing to be removed before the lower cover can be removed along with the crank pulley and belts) it doesn't sound serious and the 2 Auto teachers and me agreed if the "squeak" doesnt disappear in a week we will try and retention the belt.

    funnily enough the FSM said the belt will last 168,000kms but under extreme conditions (climates above 40 deg celcius or below -29 deg celcius to replace the belt every 100,000km) but screw testing that theory lol

    That is from those companies. Holden astra is 60,000km. Some cars are 120,000 or 150,000 but rule of thumb is 4 years/100,000km

    Read the FSM yourself and confirm. I am only telling you what it is on average and what Gates recommend. But it seems you spend more time arguing with people then giving out helpful information

    Im just trying to confirm what honda have in there service manuals, i personaly would change my timing belt sooner as i think is justified on modifed or stressed engines but since i dont have a service manual i was trying to find out what honda have printed, not what you recomend or think.

    Edit: im not being argumentative, im just trying to confirm with someone who has a honda service manual as i do not.
    Also are gates the OE supplier for honda timing belts are they?
