    Bumper to bumper is not really what it seems. There are many exclusions.

    Says its covered. My dealer rocks. They would eat the cost before pissing me off. Precedent? They ate my flooded diff for $2800.
    That said, it is clearly listed by name...

    Maybe it's not as prevalent as I thought, there are no CX-5 youtube videos with this problem. Plenty of other cars though.

    unobtainium ------ I only had the oem 3/36 and 5/60 warranty.Was past the 36 mo. mark.

    To everybody else ----- my understanding is that the newer revision is improved. IIRC it has a "B" or "b"at the end of the part number.The one I received did.

    I'm hoping to get more than 29,000 miles of this "improved version".If not, I know how to do it easier and quicker next time. Jmaz

    How about 150k miles on original accessory belt and tensioner? Just replaced last weekend. Belt was toast and surprised it break a while ago.

    The line about removing the engine is bunk. My sockets were too big but was able to swap the tensioner and belt with standard wrenches. Really had to work to get enough slack to install the new belt but very doable with no special techniques.

    Going to be changing the Serpentine and Water pump belts soon myself. Anyone have any tips?

    Rockauto sells both belts (premium Gates) and a new tensioner (also Gates) for about $59 total which is a steal. Have not calculated tx and shipping yet.

    Typo...aprox $89.

    $12.81/$10.14 for belts and $63.79 for tensioner.


    Gates is a pretty good belts brand. Prices are for a 2013 2.0 model but most likely same part#'s as 2.5l engine too. I notice the aftermarket OE is maturing well for Skyactiv engines.

    After getting 106K out of mine, and it not looking bad at all, I'm loath to go with any other than Mazda, as I KNOW it's legit.

    Mines looking pretty cracked. Cost for OEM parts is going to be roughly $160-$190 for this project. Dayco is likely the OEM supplier for Honda with its regular OE line $5-7$ belts.

    These Premium Gates are lifetime warrantied belts.
