Inspection



Specific to:

Honda CR-V 2007-2008

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.

Check that the auto-tensioner indicator (A) is within the standard range (B) as shown. If it is out of the standard range, the belt must be replaced.
