The 2001 Honda Civic is not equipped with a serpentine belt, but has 2 v-belts. These are tensioned through use of a tensioner.

All Honda 4 cylinders from 2003 and up have a timing chain except the 2004 & 2005 Honda Civic which has a belt. 2006 and up Civic has a chain.

Technically no, the fan is driven by an electric motor. It does however have at least one drive belt (which are still refered to as fan belts) which drives the pulley for the power steering pump and the alternator.

YES , according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) the 1.6 liter 4 cylinder in a 1998 Honda Civic is an interference engine

Yes , it is ( according to Gates - they manufacture timing belts etc. )

there should be two major bolts to the alternator one to losse'n up the belts and the other to release the alternator to the mount. loosen the belts first and then remove the belts.. after this it should be easy to replace the alternator

The Accord changed from a belt to chain in 2003. The Civic changed from belt to chain in 2006. Prior to that they all had belts.

1-3-4-2 with number one cylinder being the closest to the belts

Are they new belts or old belts. If the belts are new they may need to be tightned or a belt tensioner may need to be replaced. If all are new and tight there may be a part that is failing and is sliping cause it very hard for the belts to trun it.

Does your car have one belt? Or does it have 2 belts? if it has one belt..............it's called a serpentine belt and you need to find the idler pulley and insert a 3/8 inch ratchet in the hole and take the tension off the belt, slide the belt off the pulley and then replace the alternator. With serpentine belts, you do not adjust the slack on the belt using the alternator, the idler pulley adjust the slack on the belt and keeps tension on it. If you have 2 belts then you may have an adjustable alternator but most cars this new have one belt. If you have 2, check back with your question updated.

the alternator will be on the end of the engine that has the drive belts or serpentine belts, alternators are belt driven.

Changing the alternator or removing and installing the belt should not cause excessive stress or wear on the belts.

chain; most late model hondas now use chains vs belts

User Avatar

Beginning in 2003 all Honda 4 cylinders switched to a cam chain except the Honda Civic 1.7 liter 4 cylinder which still had a belt. The Honda Civic 1.7 liter switched to a cam chain beginning in 2006. All Honda V6 engines still use a cam belt that must be replaced.

#1 is on the right side looking at the engine. (the side with the alternator and belts.

In order to take off the existing alternator belt you must take off the power steering belt first. For each belt (the alternator belt and the power steering belt) you will need to loosen a couple of bolts that hold the belts tight. There is also a bolt used to adjust the belt tension that you must adjust. I would purchase a CHILTON or HAYNES maintenance manual from an auto parts store or a book store. It will explain this very well and it has pictures.
