SOURCE: need to replace lower front ball joints on a 99

The ones from the dealer is a ball joint and the control arm which come together with the ball joint already press in one whole piece meaning less work to do. just a simple swap in swap out. The $40 from parts stores or parts source is just a ball joint itself which still needs to be press in which is more labor work.

dont you have the alarm key fob? if so that will reset it. just press unlock. If you dont an dits not a OEM Acura alarm you will need to find who makes it and get a new key fob, or have a shop that does alarms to disconnect it.

SOURCE: 2006 Acura TL - power windows - Passenger window

most new acuras have what you call an anti pinch sensors which means when there is an extra load on the power window motor, it is picked up by a controll module and makes the window go back down ie, you get your fingers cought between the window and the door frame. sometimes this happnes by its self because either the window is off track and not going up stright thus putting extra load on the motor. or, the window runner track its self (which is mostly rubber) is mislodged. causing the window not to fully rest in the full up position.

SOURCE: 1999 Acura TL - WIPER BLADES HIT HARD ON BOTH

I had this same problem. The wiper blades would extend too far and hit the edge of the car, or they wouldn't extend far enough and only wipe about 3/4 of the windshield. The problem was a broken Wiper Rod A. My local mechanic replaced it - the part was about $20 and the labor about $230. Have them look at wiper rod A

Front passenger side broken axle


Need to replace the drive shaft. Aftermarket parts work fine. The biggest issue is removing inside connection to the half shaft. The clip ring tension is stronger than the boot holding the inboard joint on the drive shaft. To break it loose get a large screw driver and from under the car in front hit the inboard joint hard several times until it over comes the clip ring. Remember... always use jack stands when working under the car.

Need replace expansion valve on 1997 Acura TL. Can anyone help?


The expansion valve is located within the passenger compartment, driver's side. You need to remove a white plastic piece, called a pipe cover. Once that is out the way, the expansion valve is hidden behind the large, rubber covers. Cut the zip ties to get to it.
