Replacement of Alternator on 1989 Honda Prelude

I see the top bolt for removal of Alternator, but the bottom one is very difficult to get to and I do not see a head on it. Do I have to remove anything else to remove the alternator. Also I can't see how the tension works. Does the alternator move for the tension, or is there another adjustment.

Very difficult indeed. Try 1/4 drive ratchet or 12mm box end wrench--bottom bolt goes through the adjuster-really can't see it-slow go but do able

How do i remove an alternator from a 1989 mercedes 190E?


The alternator is held by 2 long bolts: one on top and one at the bottom. Identify the location of these bolts. Lose the top bolt first, remove completely the bottom bolt. Use the top bolt as a pivot point to lift the alternator so the belt can be out of the pulley grove. After that take off the top bolt so the alternator can come off easily. Put in the new one in reverse from what you did. Good luck.

How do I change the alternator on a 1991 honda prelude...is it easy to do myself or should I take to a mechanic if its location is difficult to reach?


it shouldn't be to difficult to do if it is accessible. Disconnect the battery first, then loosen and remove belt, remove wires and plug from alternator, then remove connecting bolts to the alternator, just go back in reverse order. Hope this helps!

Alternator


There are 2 bolts that hold the alternator in position. One bolt is near the top of the alternator, the other is near the bottom. The bottom bolt threads through the end of the ADJUSTMENT bolt (which is at a 90 degree angle to this mounting bolt, and faces threaded end w/ adjustment nut to alternator). Loosen 2 mounting bolts, adjust tension at adjustment nut (near alternator), tighten 2 mounting bolts (upper bolt 33 ft lbs, Lower mounting bolt 18 ft lbs). countrycurt0

Alternator


Loosen the upper bolt from the top and remove. From the bottom remove the adjuster bolt and remove. You'll have to remove the CV axle and remove the alternator from the bottom of the car. Not a very good design as you may already be aware of.
