Hi all,

I have TSX 2005 about 120,000 miles on it and my car is making loud noise coming from somewhere near serpentine belt side (I suspect).
I replaced serpentine belt but nothing changed.

Please see my youtube video

Anyone of you having or had this noise issue?

If so, please let me know what could this be and how to fix.

definetely one of the bearinsg in either the tensioner or water pump...

you cant replace only the bearing.......the whole part will have to be replaced.
Thank you all. I went to Acura Service center and they said it is Water pump that need to be replaced along with drive belt and antifreeze and will cost $563 + tax... :(
the water pump is like $103 from
the drive belt about $44 (honda oem) could use another brand too if you want since its just a biggie
water pump gaskets runs about $5
Plus whatever the coolant bottles cost and labor.
Soo parts alone is maybe $210-220ish (i added some $ to compensate for shipping).

I would go to a indy mechanic if i were you since its a simple job that even the crappiest mechanic should be able to do no problem.
563 is steep

I JUST got my tensioner, belt, and alternator replaced like 2 days ago for about 550....all oem honda parts......and the alternator costs like $170 more than a water pump
any why are they suggesting a belt replacement if you just changed it???????????
