i just went in for an oil change and they said i needed a new serpentine belt and another one for my ac. i have a 98 honda accord and just dropped 1300 on a new cadalitic convertor, and i feel like i keep getting ripped off bc i'm a chick. they offered me 120 and i said i would think about it. anyone know if this sounds like a decent price, or could you reccomend an honest mechanic in the san diego area? thanks!How much does it cost to have a serpentine belt replaced?
I'm an old fart, and all my cars are older than 1966, but I stopped to help a guy with a serpentine belt on his Chevy SUV, and I was pleasantly surprised that it's the easiest thing in the world to do!
On his car (the only serpentine belt I've ever installed), there was a tensioner spring that was pulled back using a half-inch drive socket wrench, then you simply lift the belt onto the pully and let go of the wrench. Takes about 2 minutes.
If your mechanic wants $120 to do that job, get another mechanic . . you're getting reamed!

you get rip by those fast lube place. First your car don't have a Serpentine belt. It should have 3 Micro v belts. Each cost from 10 to 18 bucks, and labor to replace all 3 belts is .8 of an hour. But TBH I don't think you need the new belt for your car. Call a repair shop and check the price.How much does it cost to have a serpentine belt replaced?
I work at a GMC dealership and we charge $89.95 to replace most serp. belts. They are not Honda's but $120 seems sort of steep to me.How much does it cost to have a serpentine belt replaced?
you certainly got ripped off on the catalyic converter!, thats crazy!, I would find another shop for sure, a serpentine belt usuually costs about 20 to 30 dollars and takes about five minutes to put on.
