Hi,welcome to fix ya. i use a long screwdriver and place it between the inner joint and the sub shaft housing and push the axle out of the holder . be sure to pay attention to the marking on the housing that goes on the oil pan to be sure it is not upside down or it will crack when you tighten it.

SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

SOURCE: starter replacement on acura 2000 TL 3.2

This starter can be changed without disassembling the top of the engine on the 2.5 with automatic transmission. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. First with any electrical repair disconnect the battery at the negative terminal. The starter is on the driver's side close to the firewall below the intake manifold. Remove the transmission dip stick so you don't ruin it, then look and study the starter itself. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. The top bolt is a 14mm and the bottom a 17mm, loosen both a half turn. Remove the top 14mm bolt first, then the bottom 17mm, this will allow you to pull the starter out of the bell housing. With some angling and no brackets holding the back of the starter you should be able to pull it out enough to disconnect the positive wire and 9mm nut from the soleniod. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. Now just pull it out of the engine and fender void and you've got it, saving about a hundred and fifty dollars of labor. Take it to the parts house and match it up with a well made remanufactured or new starter. Reverse the proceedure, hook up the battery.

grantgga2: I don't think this is one you are going to want to try to change out.
It entails having to remove the left axle and part of the exhaust pipe to gain access to the starter. At that point, you have one bolt which goes in at the bottom from the starter side and bolts to the engine. The other bolt passes through the trans axle housing and bolts into the starter, pulling it up to the engine.

How to replace a starter in a 1996 acura tl 2.5?


  • Since the starter involved the electrical system, disconnect the negative battery terminal to avoid any electrical shorts or other issues.The starter is located on the driver's side just below the intake manifold and near the firewall. Remove the transmission dip stick, which partially obstructs the starter.Loosen the top bolt on the starter with a 14-mm wrench and loosen the bottom bolt with a 17-mm wrench a couple of turns but do not remove the bolts.After both of the bolts are loose, remove the top bolt and then the bottom bolt and pull the starter out of the transmission bell housing. You will have to angle the starter a little to remove it.Remove the wire that goes to the ignition switch. The wire should simply slide off. Use the 9-mm wrench to disconnect the nut that holds on the solenoid wire.
  • Place wires on the new or remanufactured starter and place it back in the bell housing
  • Replace the top and bottom bolts.Put transmission dipstick back in the gearbox and reconnect the battery.
