You should be able to get to it from underneath the truck. Also there should only be 2 maybe 3 power steering hoses. Sometimes you do have to remove the other hard line hose off first to access the other one. But if you have a set of crows foot tools it can make it much easier to get to certain things like that power steering hose line. Just put the crows foot on a long 3/8 extension and racket. Hope this helps you.

There is no adjustment on the the box except to set the clearance between the gear and sector shaft. If the steering feels looses it may be caused by tie rods, pitman arm and other front end parts. Look for something loose or worn underneath while a friend turns the steering wheel back and forth.

Hi, you have to remove the power steering pump to get the alternator out. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

1994-95 Accord

See Figure 4
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive cable.
Remove the power steering pump.
  • Drain the fluid from the system as follows:
    1. Disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir.
    2. Start the engine and allow it to run at fast idle. Turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Shut off the engine immediately; don't run the pump without fluid.
    3. Reattach the hose.

  • Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt.
  • Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove the pump.
  • jturcotte_1292.gif

    Fig. Fig. 1: Once the drive belt and mounting nuts/bolts are removed from the pump, it can be removed from the engine

    1. Unplug the multi-connector from the back of the alternator.
    2. Remove the terminal nut and remove the wire from the terminal.
    3. Loosen the through-bolt, adjustment locknut, and the adjusting bolt.
    4. Remove the belt from the alternator.
    5. Remove the adjustment nut and bolt.
    6. Remove the through-bolt and the alternator.

    Fig. Fig. 4: Alternator mounting on 1994-95 Accords

    To install:

    1. Fit the alternator into place. Install the through-bolt and tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
    2. Install the adjustment bolt and nut.
    3. Install the belt and adjust the tension. Tighten the locknut to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
    4. Connect the wire to the terminal and tighten the nut.
    5. Engage the multi-pin connector to the alternator.
    6. Install the power steering pump.
      1. Install in reverse order. Adjust the belt tension, fill the reservoir and bleed the air from the system. Tighten the bolts/nuts to the following:

        1984-85 Accord and Prelude pivot bolt 32 ft. lbs. (45 Nm); adjusting nut 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) 1986-89 Accord pivot bolt 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm); adjusting nut 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1986-87 Prelude pivot bolt and mounting nut 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) 1990-93 Accord through bolt 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm); mounting nut 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1988-91 Prelude mounting nuts and bolts 35 ft. lbs. (49 Nm) 1994-95 Accord mounting nuts 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm) 1992-95 Prelude mounting nuts and bolts 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm)
      2. Properly enable the SRS system, if equipped, and connect the negative battery cable.


      1. Make sure the reservoir is filled to the FULL mark; do not overfill.
      2. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
      3. Turn the steering wheel from side-to-side several times, lightly contacting the stops.
      4. Turn the engine OFF .
      5. Check the fluid level in the reservoir and add if necessary.
    7. Connect the positive battery cable, then the negative cable.

    Need to know how to replace the power steering pump

    This is straight from my service manual:
    You will have better access from underneath the vehicle for the most part in removing the pump and related parts. If the air cleaner pipe from the air filter gets in your way, remove it, also, you should remove the power steering resevoir. If you have the 7M-GE (non-turbo), remove the splash guard from underneath the car. Loosen the bolt on top that is used to keep the belt tension and loosen the bottom bolt that attaches the pump to the bottom bracket (just loosen for now, don't remove.) remove the high-pressure hose banjo fitting hose bolt and the two air sensor hoses on the back of the pump. remove the low-pressure hose. You will have to remove the pulley from the pump and to do that you will have to use a tool to hold the pulley stable while you remove the nut securing the pulley to the pump. Toyota specifies special tool SST - 09278-54012 But you can use whatever tool will hold the pulley tight without marring it. Once you have the nut off, you have to remove the pulley and be careful not to lose the woodruf key. TIP: the bottom bolt for the pump has its bolt head toward the firewall. Replacement is the reverse order that you took it off. Don't forget to bleed the system of air and tighten the belt.
    Hope this is usefull.
