Question about 2007 Acura TL
I agree with Vernon's answer. A lot of times you must remove the tire/wheel and there will be a plastic cover or rubber plug you can remove in the inner fender well for access to the bolt. You may still need to loosen or remove motor mounts and raise or lower the vehicle to line up with the access hole.

Not an unusual problem but usually overlooked in repair manuals. Sometimes removing one or two engine mountings and raising or lowering the engine will allow long bolts to pass above or below the chassis. Sometimes I have needed to remove all the mounts and move the power unit across the engine compartment to provide extra clearance.
A few manufacturers provide a useful hole in the chassis for such access. There is sometimes a case for an owner or repairer to make such modifications.

SOURCE: 2004 Acura TL front end problem
You may not need the entire strut, just the part that serves as a shock absorber. The term strut refers to a complete assemby with coil spring and a central shock absorber.
When their seals fail completely, whether gas or fluid filled,they are just a piston in a cylinder with nothing to damp their travel so they can slam at both ends.
American made 'shocks' were once only really effective for ~20k miles but both foreign and domestic have improved a great deal but one of yours may have left the factory less than perfect.
Shop the parts before you let the car go to anyone to see if they are scalping you or only marking their cost up a little.

The bolt holding you up is on the bottom by the compressor, right? You Will have to have an inverted torx socket to remove the studs. Also there is a spacer behind the mount bracket, remember where it goes. You will have to pull the pully bolts and get it out of the way too. Some of those cars have plastic elbows going from the intake to the water pump, be carefull with it. Your motor may not have this but be ready to replace it if it does because it will most likley break. Good Luck.

SOURCE: change idler pulley
It's a T-40 size, but I removed the bolt by first removing the bracket holding the pulley--I assume you're talking about the alternator idler pulley, the one right below the alternator. The bracket is held in place by three 14 mm bolts which I was able to reach from the top of the engine (after removing the black plastic air tube). I then put the bracket in a vise and "buzzed" off the 14 mm nut using an electric impact wrench ($30 +/- from Heartland of America). Be careful when putting the nut back on--the impact wrench will likely be too much torque!
