How to Adjust Serpentine/Alternator Belt On Honda Civic EF

In this video I show you how to loosen and tighten the serpentine belt for the alternator on a Honda Civic EF with D15 engine. The procedure should be the same for most Hondas of this era including CRX, Integra etc.

Tools for the job:

  • 12mm spanner
  • 14mm spanner
  • Something to pry the alternator with to tighten the belt (crow bar, for example)
