Question about 1993 Acura Legend
Dropped exhaust pipe
Can't remove from car due to clearance
Do I need to remove driver side CV axle just to get the starter out?
(what a pain the acura starter replacement is)
Do you need any special puller or a slide hammer to remove the axle?
Does it simply slide into the transaxle being only secured on the outboard (wheel) end? Have not removed one before. How long would it take to remove?
Thanks for the help!
You can either remove driver's side halfshaft or battery tray and alternator to remove the starter. i chose the halfshaft, since it gave a little more room to unbolt the starter. no need to drain transaxle when removing driver's side halfshaft. unbolt balljoint and tierod end from knuckle. i also removed the pinch bold that attaches the strut to the knuckle to allow more movement to remove the axle. axle nut is 36mm. use a large screwdriver or small prybar to gently pry the halfshaft from the transaxle, be careful not to damage the seal. upper bolt on the starter is really tough to get access to...
