Question about 2000 Honda Accord
I need to know how to change the altenator on a 2000 honda accord. I was told that is not holding charge and eventually it will go out, that was about 6 months ago and it finally has started acting up badly on me. I was a few hundred feet from my driveway when it started sputtering. Earlier in the day my radio which is one I had put in would just turn off and then turn back on. After it was dark outside my lights were really dim and as I was getting ready to turn into my driveway the car started sputtering and my abs light came on. Sitting in the drive way it wasnt doing anything so I turned it off and tried to turn it back on. It wouldnt start it wasnt even turning over. About any hour later I went outside so my boyfriend could look at it and it started just fine all my lights were on just as bright as they normally are. If you cant tell me how to change the altenator where would be the best place to get one at and a manual that will tell me how to. I have an Advanced, Auto Zone, Oreillys, and Napa in town. Thanks
I had this same problem and had to figiure out how to do it myself. The alternator is very easy to loosen and disassemble from the engine, but extremely difficult to get out. The engine compartment is very tight, not allowing it to come out. Before you remove the alternator, you should first unclamp the radiator and move it out of the way. This will allow you enough room to remove the bad alternator and install the new one. You can purchase a replacement alternator from most any auto parts store for < $100 on a lifetime warranty. If you follow this instruction and move the radiator out of the way, you can complete this job in about 2 hours. It is very easy and can be done with minimal tools. On the other hand, if you screw around like I did, trying to figure out how to be Houdini and "manouver" the alternator in such a way that you can avoid moving the radiator, it will take you 4+ hours. This method simply won't work. Enjoy....
