I have a 2003 Honda accord with 124000 miles, 4 cyl, is the drive belt (not timing belt) an item that has to be replaced at regular intervals or do you just inspect it? Is it easy to replace? What are you looking for to inspect it. The manual shows a picture of a pointer but it's very hard to tell what to look for. Thank-you

Hi Jmarto44,

No, external drive belts are only replaced as and when necessary but then they would start emitting squeeking noise after a certain period of use. Things to check for are deterioration of the quality of the belt rubber ( cracks, tears, etc)

Replacement is not difficult but proper adjustment is important for durability and won't cause premature wear to driven components.
