HowTo change headlamps on 1996 Honda Accord

Replacing a burned-out headlamp is simple and doesn't require any tools.

First, buy a replacement bulb, type 9006 (low beams) When you open the package, be very careful that you don't touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil from your skin can cause the bulb to warp and explode when you turn it on.

Second, open the hood and locate the back of the burned-out headlamp. There will be an electrical connector on the back of the bulb, held in place with a locking connector. The lock is the small plastic tab in the middle of the connector. Press in on the bottom of this tab, and it should give slightly, releasing the lock. Hold this tab in place and push straight down on the connector, wiggling if needed, to unplug the old bulb.

Third, locate the lock ring that holds the bulb in place. This is a round plastic ring, about the size of a peanut-butter jar lid. Turn the lock ring about 1/4 turn clockwise (top of the ring should move towards the driver's side, bottom of the ring move towards the passenger side)
If there's dirt build-up, this ring may be stuck. Tap gently with a screwdriver handle and try again. DO NOT use a hammer, or you'll break the headlamp housing!

Once you turn the lock ring, the old bulb should come straight out. Put the new bulb in place and do the steps in reverse order to finish:

- turn the lock ring counter-clockwise to lock the new bulb in place
- push the electrical connector on until the lock tab "CLICK"s into place

Replacing air condition lines

My friend,if it is the new style connector,and not a clamp,auto parts stores carry a set of plastic split rings that fit those connectors and only ONE of them will work.But you have to buy the set.These special connectors are on all newer vehicles and used on fuel lines also.You just use the right one that fits,push it into the fitting,and that pushes the clips apart inside the connector,and pull the lines apart.Installation is just push the lines together and they seal.Rigger

How do i replace my fuel filter?

The fuel filter is mounted on the frame rail. There are two types of fittings used. You only need to look at the fittings to tell the difference.

There is the plastic "hair pin" type of connector. It has a plastic connector with a plastic "hairpin" clip that pushes through the connector. Just pry the clip out with a screwdriver don't worry about breaking the clip, the new filter should come with new clips. Be careful not to break the fitting though. If you break the connector, you must replace the fuel line...not fun.

The other type is what Ford calls the "Duckbill" type of connector. I don't know wht it is called doesn't look like a duck bill to me. Anyway., you can identify this one as a stainless steel connector. there is usually also a stainless steel lock clip that goes over the outside of this type of connector. The lock clip can be pried up and removed with a screwdriver. Once the lock clip is removed, a special fuel line disconnect tool must be used to releasethe spring clips inside the connector. the tool canbe purchased for a couple dollars at any parts store where you would buy your fuel filter.

You need to look at the car to determine if you need the tool or not. Both types of connectors are used for the same fuel filter. Plastic connectors - no special tool needed. Stainless steel connectors - special tool required.

Replacing a fuel pump

Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the spare tire cover (if present) and trunk floor so that you can open the access panel and disconnect the electrical connection from the fuel pump.
  • Remove the fuel pump's electrical connector and disconnect the quick connect fitting from the fuel pump. Remove the fuel tank locknut using tool 07AAA-S0XA100 or the fuel tank retaining bolts with a socket wrench, depending on the year and engine. Remove the fuel tank.
  • Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and be sure to replace the gasket and O-rings. Align the arrows on the fuel tank and pump.
  • Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure.

    Looking for the location of the fuel filter on an 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis

    Never smoke when working around or near gasoline! Make sure that there is no igniting source near your work area! Fuel Injected Engines The fuel filter is of a one-piece construction which cannot be cleaned. If it becomes clogged, it must be removed and replaced. When replacing the fuel filter use the filter specified for the engine being serviced. The inline filter is mounted on the same bracket as the fuel supply pump. It is on the frame rail under passenger side of the vehicle, in front of the fuel tank. To replace the filter: Fig. 4: Whenever you see a warning label, read it 86651210.jpg
    Fuel supply lines on fuel injected vehicles will remain pressurized for some time after the engine is shut off. Fuel pressure must be relieved before servicing the fuel system.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Relieve the fuel system pressure as follows:
      1. Remove the fuel tank cap to relieve any pressure in the fuel tank.
      2. Remove the cap from the Schrader valve located on the fuel injection supply manifold in the engine compartment.
      3. Attach fuel pressure gauge T80L–9974–A or equivalent, to the Schrader valve and drain the fuel through the drain tube into a suitable container.
      4. After the fuel system pressure is relieved, remove the fuel pressure gauge and install the cap on the Schrader valve.
    3. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
    4. Disconnect the fittings from both ends of the fuel filter as follows:
      1. Inspect the visible portion of the fitting for dirt accumulation. If more than a light coating of dust is present, clean the fitting before disassembly.
      2. Some adhesion between the seals in the fitting and the filter will occur with time. To separate, twist the fitting on the filter, then push and pull the fitting until it moves freely on the filter.
      3. Remove the hairpin clip from the fitting by first bending and breaking the shipping tab. Next, spread the 2 clip legs by hand about 1⁄8 in. (3.1mm) each to disengage the body, then push the legs into the fitting. Lightly pull the triangular end of the clip and work it clear of the filter and fitting. NOTE: Do not use hand tools to complete this operation. Damage to the fittings may result.
      4. Grasp the fitting and pull in an axial direction to remove the fitting from the filter. Be careful on 90°elbow connectors, as excessive side loading could break the connector body.
      5. After disassembly, inspect the inside of the fitting for any internal parts such as O-rings and/or spacers that may have been dislodged from the fitting. Replace any damaged connector(s). Fig. 5: Carefully remove the hairpin clip 86651211.jpg
        Fig. 6: With a rag under the hose to catch any gasoline spillage, slowly separate the line from the filter 86651212.jpg

    5. If equipped, remove the filter retainer bolts and remove the filter and retainer from the mounting bracket. Remove the filter from the retainer. Note that the direction of the flow arrow on the fuel filter. Remove the rubber insulator rings, if installed. Inspect the rings for cracks or wear, and replace if needed. Fig. 7: Remove the hardware securing the filter to the housing 86651213.jpg
      Fig. 8: Lower the filter assembly, then separate the pieces 86651214.jpg
      To install:
    6. Install the fuel filter with the flow arrow facing the proper direction as before, then tighten the filter retaining clamp(s).
    7. If the original filter was equipped with rubber insulator rings, install the rubber insulator rings on the new filter. Install the filter into the retainer with the flow arrow pointing in the correct direction. Install the retainer on the bracket and tighten the mounting bolts to 27–44 inch lbs. (3–5 Nm).
    8. Connect the fittings at both ends of the fuel filter as follows:
      1. Install a new connector if damage was found. Insert a new clip into any 2 adjacent openings with the triangular portion pointing away from the fitting opening. Install the clip until the legs of the clip are locked on the outside of the body. Piloting with an index finger is necessary.
      2. Before installing the fitting on the filter, wipe the filter end with a clean cloth. Inspect the inside of the fitting to make sure it is free of dirt and/or obstructions.
      3. Apply a light coating of engine oil to the filter end. Align the fitting and filter axially and push the fitting onto the filter end. When the fitting is engaged, a definite click will be heard. Pull on the fitting to make sure it is fully engaged.
    9. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
    10. Lower the vehicle.

    Injectors for 1989 honda accord removing and installing

    Detach the cable from the negative battery terminal (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code to reactivate it.).
    Relieve the fuel pressure (take the gas cap off, and loosen service bolt at the top of the fuel filter; you will need two wrenches for that, on to hold the fitting and the other to loosen the nut; make sure you have a towel or something to catch the gas spill). You could, instead, just SLOWLY loosen the pressure line at the right end of the fuel rail (facing the car).
    Remove the air cleaner assembly (take the top off, take out the filter, detach all hoses, take out retaining bolts, and remove).
    Unplug the injector connectors (CAREFULLY detach the clips first; just pry them back out of their notches; try not to pop them off and drop one, they are hard to find once dropped).
    Detach the vacuum hose and fuel return hose from the fuel pressure regulator (left end of the fuel rail, if you are facing the vehicle)
    Detach the two ground cables from the intake manifold (in the middle, under one nut)
    Detach the fuel lines (already did left one; detach the pressure line at the right end of the fuel rail).
    Remove the mounting nuts (four) and detach the fuel rail and injectors from the intake manifold.
    Remove the injectors from the fuel rail and remove and discard the seal rings (top and bottom; the second ring down on the top is the cushion ring and does not need to be replaced, but it is recommended. Most kits contain them)
    Coat the new o-rings with fresh oil and slip them on the injectors (or, if you are replacing the injectors they probably came with o-rings on them. Just coat them with oil)
    Place each injector into its corresponding bore in the fuel rail (doesn’t matter which is which if you are replacing them all).
    Coat each new bottom seal with oil and press it into the injector bores in the intake manifold.
    Install the injector and fuel rail assembly on the intake manifold. Make sure the centerline of the electrical connector on each injector is aligned with its corresponding mark on the intake manifold (little arrows, I think). Tighten the fuel rail nuts to the specified torque (17 lbs)
    Reverse removal procedure for the rest.
    After all is done, turn the ignition on, but do not start the car. This will build up pressure in your fuel lines. Do that two or three times, then check to see if you have any leakage around the injector, or other fittings, before you start the car.
    Then you’re done.
    Hope this gets you through it.
