Hi chaps 


I don't own or even looked under the bonnet of a 6th gen accord but a retired neighbour is convinced I can fix theirs after seeing the hours I've spent under my own Honda, silly boy. 


It's a bog standard petrol (1.8) saloon but before I test it, agree to have a look or get in too deep is it a straight forward swap out, anything I need to particulary consider or be concerned about?  Was hoping to get the owner to buy a reconditioned unit and be done in 20 minutes for a drink.

I have not replace mine, but I had to take it out a couple of times and that is pretty easy. The only thing you need to take care is to properly adjust the tension of the belt.
