    Just a reminder to all those who are planning to change their long aux belt for the short one. Do this simple test whilst doing the swap.

    Hi everyone. I recently joined, so excuse me if I've jumped in but I was searching for info on alternators. I recently had mine changed as it packed up whilst out driving, the dash boardwent very Blackpool with every light on it flashing. Nothing wrong with the replacement, but since then one then the 2nd garage just can't get it right. The only conclusion the 2nd garage canarrive at is the belts are wrong (?) but even they agree they are Gates whichare good:PAS Belt # 4pk1063 Alternator Belt #6pk1103. Anyone have any advice/opinion on them, would OEM Honda be any better?This is the first major bill I’ve had in 143k/12 years so I can’t complain. The car is driveable but I don’t like the feel so it needs sorting!

    if you're changing to the shorter belt and doing away with the top idler pulley, the Honda part number is 040301-RBD-305. if the parts monkey askes for your reg number, it will come back with the original long belt, so don't take any notice of him. Even then, you'll get ripped off to over £40+ just for the belt, plus VAT as well!
    These belts are fitted to other vehicles, the alternative part number is 7PK1788. Searching GOOGLE now they are £21.83p with free delivery.

    Just with a quick visual check.

    How can you tell if you have the modified belt or whether you still have the old (original/factory fitted) belt.

    Any photos or diagrams any where.

    thks
