Re: 2003 CRV - needs throttle to keep compressor on, had a leak

Evey time I have a problem on this car, every time, it involves removing this God forsaken serpentine belt. thanks to Honda who made it so that nothing other than their official belt removal tool can do it, I have to remove engine mounts and jack engine up so that the tensi...
