DRIVE BELT TENSIONER STUCK

2000 Honda Odyssey

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Honda Odyssey 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles

I loosened the bolt on the automatic drive belt tensioner as far as it would go and it did not release. I assume the tensioner needs to be replaced, which I'd do except the belt is tight and I can't remove it. Anyone know how to unstuck the tensioner?

Hi angadam,

DO NOT loosen the tensioner bolt. Turn the tensioner anti clockwie to release the tension of the belt to enable removal.
