Honda Pilot Shim to Correct Chirping Timing Belt
A chirp noise from the timing belt area can be caused by a tilted idler pulley. Installing a corrective shim from Honda will commonly correct this issue.
When starting the vehicle first thing in the morning, it will give a type of knocking sound or sweaking sound. The idler was mentioned as being the problem. - Visitor
Same here. Have really liked this vehicle but at 60,000 miles it started falling apart. Belt chirping, water leaks, engine tapping, light keep blowing. Not happy. - Visitor
I had a chirping sound from the belt area which became worse when the vehicle was cold or in humid weather. I replaced the accessory belt, but this didn't stop the problem. I ended up having the dealer replace the timing belt, water pump, and install the shim kit so it doesn't happen again. It's been 6 months now and I haven't heard a problem since. - Visitor
