Hey guys, new here to the forum and new to Accord ownership! I'd be very grateful for any help on this issue, there's a rattle from the belt side of my 05 Accord 2.2 CDTi exec, 140k. My mechanic seems to think its the crankshaft pulley but wouldn't have seen too many diesel Accords. I was certain it was alternator bearings but from the searches i've conducted both here and elsewhere thats supposed to be more of a whine, this is a very definate rattle getting louder around 1500rpm. Before i splash out €400 euro plus labour on a crank pulley could any lads or ladies here have a different idea? It doesnt sound like a chain as the sound is quite low down and seems to be loudest at the crank. Any help greatly appreciated!! - - - Updated - - - And sorry guys, oil was changed recently in main dealers and is clean and to the level.
