    Hello fellow Accord owners,

    I recently noticed that my serpentine belt had seen better days, and decided to replace it. While at it, checked tensioner and idler pulleys for noise. The tensioner pulley seems OK, but the idler one sounds noisy, attached a video with sound, could you please confirm whether I should replace it?



    Here the old belt, I assume I was right to change it:

    Thank you,

    Jose

    That's my impression at the moment. Genuine ones are going for £35~ish.
