im doing my self never did a mdx before but have done timing belts on other cars from what i read / seen online it looks like a pretty easy jobAISIN is an excellent alternative to OEM. I've used them since the 90's in my Civics and Integras, with no problems. I just had my 07 (new to me) MDX done, too.
If you're doing it yourself...Genuine Aisin Timing Belt Water Pump Kit Honda Acura V6 Factory Parts | eBay
If you're buying it, to have someone else do it...make sure that they will install the parts that you bring.
Get into your facebook and see if anyone in your area can do a timing belt on your MDX and ask them if they have actually done a TB before.
I found (in my area) a few guys that offered to do it. A mechanic that worked for a shop specializing on Acuras/Hondas ($300), two other guys said that they did their own ($200).
i all ready loosened mine a couple weeks ago with 3/4 in drive impack gun it didnt have a chanceI was worried about cracking the crank bolt, on a v6 vs 4 cylinder.
My Acura dealer cranked it (for the first time in 9 years), for $30
I understand that it came off, without too much extra effort, later that week, when the TB job was done.
