93 accord timing belt installation


  • Car jack
  • Jack stands
  • Torque wrench
  • Chain wrench
  • 3/8 inch drive ratchet
  • 1/2 inch drive ratchet
  • 10 mm wrench
  • 12 mm wrench
  • 10 mm socket (3/8 inch)
  • 14 mm socket (3/8 inch)
  • 17 mm socket (1/2 inch)
  • 19 mm socket (1/2 inch)
  • Timing belt
  • Balancer belt
  • Bottle of Liquid Paper

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Using a ½-inch-drive ratchet and the 19 mm socket, turn the center bolt on the crankshaft so that number-one cylinder piston is at top dead center (TDC). You will know you ware at TDC when the mark on the crank is in alignment with the arrow on the timing cover.
  • Disconnect the cruise control connector and remove the cruise control actuator. Loosen the upper mounting bolt with the 14 mm socket. Use a 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut then use a 10 mm socket to loosen the adjuster from the power steering pump and remove the belt.
  • Loosen the upper air conditioner mounting bolt using the 14 mm socket. Use the 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut and adjusting bolt on the alternator and remove the alternator/AC belt. Remove the valve cover using a 10 mm socket.
  • Place the jack behind the left front wheel where the arrow is located indicating the jack location, and raise the vehicle. Put the jack stand under the subframe behind the jack, then lower the jack. Remove the left front wheel for easy access to the crank pulley. Using a block of wood atop the jack, place the jack under the oil pan and lift with slight pressure to hold the engine in place. Remove the side engine mount using a 17 mm deep socket.
  • Take off the dipstick, pipe tube and upper timing cover using a 10 mm socket.
    Then remove the timing belt adjuster rubber seal without loosening the adjuster nut. Take off the crankshaft pulley bolt. Use the chain wrench to hold the the crankshaft pulley while turning the crankshaft pulley bolt with a 19 mm socket. Use the 10 mm wrench and 10 mm socket to remove the bolts on the lower cover. Remove the lower cover and mark the location of the cam, crank and balancer shaft with Liquid Paper. Remove the balancer shaft belt and timing belt. Install the timing belt and the balancer shaft belt in the reverse order of removing them. During Installation of the crank pulley, coat the threads of the crank pulley bolt with engine oil and tighten it to 159 foot-pounds. Finally, adjust the tension of the power steering and alternator belts as well.

    1. Clean all parts well. Use care when scraping gasket material from the front cover and the pump. Do not gouge aluminum parts. Clean the bolt threads well. The torque specification is low and if the bolt threads are dirty, an accurate torque is not possible and leaks are likely to develop.
    2. Using a new gasket, install the water pump to the front cover. Install the cleaned and lightly lubricated water pump bolts. Torque to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    3. Install the water pump pulley and bolts and torque to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
    4. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process. When refilling the cooling system, use the proper mix of DEX-COOL® and water. Check for leaks.

    Need instructions on how to replace water pump on a 1990 checvy lumina avp


    The water pump is located on the right side of the engine. This is facing the car from the front. Remove the three bolts that connect the belt guard. They will need a 10mm socket or wrench.
    Next, remove the belt. You can do this by reaching down under to the belt tension pully and lifting it up with a wrench. This will make the belt loose enough for you to remove it. Usually as in my case the belt was broken anyway. If so you can skip this step, but remember it when replacing the belt.

    Next hold the water pump pulley with a block of wood or something that will keep it from turning. Remove the four bolts that hold the pulley on and take the pulley off. Next you must remove the 5 bolts that hold the water pump on. You will need a 8mm socket or wrench to do this.

    After the bolts are removed you must pry the pump loose with a screwdriver or bar. The pump will come off. You must clean the old gasket material off the housing. Now you are ready to install the new pump.


    Just do things in the reverse order and you will be done. Replace the belt and check for leaks, add antifreeze in needed. See how easy it was. Saved yourself a few dollars also.

STEP 3 Remove the belt tensioner and remove the steering pump pulley STEP 4 Remove the water pump pulley use the engine bracket to pry against. STEP 5 Remove the timing cover and Remove the right-hand front wheel and the cover in the wheel housing. STEP 6 Remove the crankshaft pulley (undo the six bolts but do not remove the centre bolt). STEP 7 Place the engine top dead center and Zero the engine. The markings on the camshaft sprockets and timing cover should be in alignment as also should the marking on the crankshaft. Use locking tools 83 95 006 and KM-800-2 for the camshaft sprockets and locking tool KM-800-10 for the crankshaft (These tools can be purchased from Saab (18774177222) or from Baum Tools). STEP 8 Before removing the toothed belt mark its direction of rotation . To facilitate refitting the belt can be marked at both the camshaft marking and the crankshaft marking. STE9cc7b85.jpgP 9
