  2. DIY (J35A4) timing belt replacement

    Genuine Honda parts aren't necessarily made by Honda themselves, they are manufactured by outside vendors. If you're in the market for timing belt kits along with the water pump seals etc. look into Aisin, Gates, Mitsuboshi etc. These parts won't be Honda branded.
