Question about 1995 Honda Accord
We are trying to replace a timing belt on a 95 honda accord and have done everything we know humanly possible to remove this bolt but can't. Would you be so kind as to let us know the trick to removing the balancer bolt?
Sure, this is what I do. Find a long piece of rope that will fit into the spark plug hole. Remove #1 spark plug and rotate the engine to position the piston at the bottom of the cylinder. Feed as much rope as possible, stuffing it into the plug hole with a screwdriver if you have to. At this point the rope has become a piston stop. As you're trying to remove the balancer bolt, the piston will press into the rope keeping it from rotating and you'll have to use alot of removal force but it WILL pop loose. If the piston doesn't stop, you don't have enough rope in the plug hole. Don't worry, the valves and piston will be unharmed. I use the "rope trick" alot in my shop for Honda balancer bolts..

There are two belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shaft and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Use a piece of chalk or a marker to place an identifying arrow on the belts. The arrow can identify the direction of rotation or the outer edge of the belts. The belts must be reinstalled so it moves in the same direction. Protect the belts from oil, coolant, etc. It's an even better idea to replace the belts at this point.
