    Evening all,

    Been a massive Honda follower for years and owned a number of Hondas now. Rough list below:

    1986 Prelude 1.8 12v
    11 Honda CRXs (Mk2s) from UK 16v D16A9s to UK VTEC B16A1s Jap import Si & even a LHD Yank spec ZC
    Honda Civic GLs (Owned 2 a manual 1.4 and an Auto) Both great cars
    Currently own a Honda FR-V 2.2 Cdti and a LHD French CR-X (D16A9) also have a CR250 Motocross bike

    Owned a large number of Honda bikes too but as this is more car based I won't expand on these.

    Look forward to reading posts here and becoming an active member.

    I'm not afraid to get stuck in I service all my own vehicles and undertake all work, engineer by trade and not shy of the spanners.

    Mx bike is a 2004 2 Stroke, minter! thing is my pride & joy.

    4 of my 11 Honda CRXs I turbocharged as well from scratch but have grown out of modifying cars now did the track day and modifying scene for a while and enjoyed myself but a family and lack of time prevents too many hobbies now. Balls deep changing the FR-V alternator on the FR-V at the moment that is how I found the forum :Niceone:

    Welcome to the club Tris.

    We have bike riders (and a bike section) here as well as car drivers so all your Honda needs should be catered for.

    Good to hear you like to get your hands dirty on the servicing I'm sure you'll have some helpful tips to offer.

    Welcome along fella :Smile: are you fitting the shorter belt at the same time? I assume it will be the same for your car as I think it's all I-CTDIs that have the longer belt that causes alternator bearings to fail.

    I believe I fitted the shorter serpentine belt last year as the previous belt sounded rough, had a revised layout in the bag from Mr H so suspect so. cheers anyway Dave
