    Default Civic problem in automatic tensioner bearing

    My friend owns a 9th generation civic just like me. Recently he started hearing bearing noise from his engine. The car had run only 60,000 KM. Honda 3S analyzed the problem correctly, that bearing of automatic tensioner of serpentine belt needs to be replaced. However, they quoted a price of 23,000 for replacement parts (complete assembly), plus labour. Ultimately my friend got the bearing for Rs 450 from the market and got it changed from a mistri who charged labour 1000. Problem gone for less than 1500.

    The problem was in bearing of automatic tensioner of serpentine belt (previously known as fan belt in older days). In my above post I had erroneously mentioned timing belt / chain. Now I have edited my above post to reflect the correct situation.

    Honda does not replace bearing alone, but complete assembly, which costs lot of money. Whereas new bearing is not so expensive.

    Any mistri can do this job. Not big problem. However, what bothers me is that problem of this nature should not come after only 60,000 KM.
