K Series Serpentine Belt Tensioner Replacement

Is your Honda K series making a horrible screeching noise? It might be the serpentine belt tensioner. In this video I show you how to replace a bad serpentine belt tensioner on a Honda K series engine. I'm doing this job in a 2004 Honda Element, but this method should work for most Honda K series engines.

Unfortunately I couldn't find the info on my former tensioner that went bad. This is the one I replaced it with.

Hopefully it lasts longer than it's predecessor. For best results, I recommend the Honda part, but it does come at a price.
