Alternator lower bolt removal (1995 Honda Civic)

I have already removed the upper adjuster bolt, and the disconnected all wiring but I could not get the lower bolt off. I tried almost a whole can of liquid wrench. I tried heating the nut. I even used my grinder to grind off the nut and the end of the bolt that it was connected to and still the bolt will not come out. I tried wedging a screw driver under the head of the bolt to free it still it has not budged...HELP!

There is a nut back there that the bolt screw into it probably cam of the welding and is spinning around and and therefore would come loose just chock nut or use a wrench to hold and it will come out. Good Luck

TESTING

The easiest way to test the performance of the alternator is to perform a regulated voltage test.

  1. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temperature.
  2. Connect a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
  3. Voltage should be 14.1-14.7 volts.
  4. If voltage is higher or lower than specification, connect a voltmeter between the battery positive (B+) voltage output terminal of the alternator and a good engine ground.
  5. Voltage should be 14.1-14.7 volts.
  6. If voltage is still out of specification, a problem exists in the alternator or voltage regulator.
  7. If voltage is now within specification, a problem exists in the wiring to the battery or in the battery itself.

Many automotive parts stores have alternator bench testers available for use by customers. An alternator bench test is the most definite way to determine the condition of your alternator.

HOW DO I REMOVE A ALTERNATOR ON A 1987 CHEVY BLAZER


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable, then disconnect the positive cable from the battery.
  2. Disconnect and tag all wiring to the alternator. Fig. 1: Some of the alternator wiring is at a ring terminal located under a protective rubber boot on the rear of the alternator 85773154.jpg
    Fig. 2: A small box or open-end wrench may be used to loosen the wiring retaining nut 85773155.jpg
    Fig. 3: Squeeze the locktab and disengage the connector from the side of the alternator housing 85773156.jpg

  3. If necessary for removal clearance, disconnect the ground strap from the alternator bracket.
  4. If equipped, remove the alternator brace bolt.
  5. If the truck is equipped with power steering, it may be necessary to loosen the pump brace and mount nuts.
  6. Remove the lower mounting bolt, then support the alternator and remove the upper mounting/adjusting bolt.
  7. Slip the alternator belt from the pulley and remove the alternator from the truck. Fig. 4: Loosen the lower mounting bolt 85773159.jpg
    Fig. 5: The alternator uses a very long lower mounting bolt which passes through the alternator housing and a bushing before threading into the engine block 85773160.jpg
    Fig. 6: Support the alternator by hand and unthread the upper mounting/adjustment bolt 85773161.jpg

  8. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure that the bushing is in place when the lower mounting bolt is installed. Should the bolt be torqued without the bushing in position, alternator housing damage would likely occur.
  9. Adjust the belt(s) to have 1?4 - 1?2 inch depression under thumb pressure on its longest run. Fig. 7: Once the alternator is free, it may be lowered slightly so the belt may be removed from its pulley 85773162.jpg
    Fig. 8: Remove the alternator housing from the vehicle by lifting upward 85773163.jpg
    Fig. 9: During installation, carefully pry outward on the alternator in order to adjust the belt tension 85773164.jpg

Pulling an alternator


Removing the rear-mounted alternator on early 1990s Civics and CRX can be frustrating. After removing the upper adjusting bracket bolt and the lower pivot bolt, the alternator can *almost* come out the top and almost fits behind the intake manifold.

The only easy exit path is out the left wheel well. Side access requires removing the wheel and unfastening three of the plastic retainers holding the upper end of the splash guard. But even this doesn't provide quite enough room. You need to tuck the alternator back under the intake, unbolt the lower alternator bracket (two bolts, 14mm socket) before the alternator can be removed.

The tools needed:

10mm socket -- alternator power connection, battery terminal
12mm wrench -- adjusting bracket
14mm socket -- adjusting bracket, pivot bolt, alternator bracket

How do I take the altenator out of a 1993 Honda Accord LX?


The alternator is generally mounted low on the engine on the firewall side. This makes access very awkward. The work must be done both over-the-fender and from below, depending on your agility and reach. Whenever the work is to be performed from below, the vehicle must be safely supported on jackstands. If only the front is supported, the parking brake must be applied and the rear wheels firmly blocked. Once elevated, the gravel or splash shield must be removed from under the engine.
  1. With the ignition OFF, disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the power steering pump. Refer to Section 8 for the complete procedure.
  3. Remove the cruise control actuator but do not disconnect the actuator cable; simply move the unit out of the way with the cable attached.
  4. Unplug the multi-pin electrical connector.
  5. Remove the terminal nut and remove the wire from the terminal.
  6. Loosen the adjusting bolt; remove the alternator nut.

Replace 1997 civic ex alternator


The alternator is removed from the bottom of the vehicle. place the vehicle on jackstands positioned on the body, so the suspension hangs (you'll need this extra clearance to get the alternator past the axle shaft). 1). Disconnect the battery 2.) remove the upper mounting bolt (12mm) 3.) remove the terminal nut from the white wire. (10mm) 4.) Disconnect the 4pin connector 5.) From under the vehicle remove the lower mounting through bolt nut and through bolt (14mm) 6.) Remove the alternator from the lower mount and position the alternator to the side of the lower mount. 7.) remove the two lower mount bolts (14mm) and remove the lower mount asy. 8.) remove the alternator down the axle and out below the wheelwell. its going to be a tight fit so you'll have to turn the alternator at just the right position to get it out.
