There is a 10 bolt on the left which does the adjusting it is behind a "U" shaped alignment washer midway down the stud that you took the nut off (that held the middle of the 3 cover holdowns). This bolt goes through the left alternator 12 nut/stud and you will also have to take out the 14 bolt on the right. Turn the bolt clockwise and it will take the tension off the belt so you can get it off the pulley. To get the alternator back on point the 12 stud at an angle to receive the left side of the alternator while keeping it against the engine removal flange and in the "U". Drop the alternator into position on the right and put the large 14 bolt through. Now put the 12 nut onto the left stud and count how many times you drop the nut. You can tape it to a screwdriver and get it into position where you can get a quarter turn on it. Replace the belt (if new you will need to support the engine and take off the left side mount) and tighten the 10 until the belt has 1/2" play at the middle. Not too tight but not loose enough to move the pulley by hand. Tighten the 12 (left) and 12 (right) and replace the wires and covers. Get bandaids for your wounds.

89 acura legend tail lights stuck on. how to fix?

Tail lights or brake lights? Most common is the brake light switch stopper breaks off so the brake light switch doesn't shut off. This is above the brake pedal. Look on the floor for small broken plastic pieces. The stopper is only a few dollars, pretty easy to pop in place.

When does the timing belt need to be replaced on the V6 89 Legend?...Is there anyway to tell if it has been done if the maintenance records are not available? We are thinking of buying this car for our...

HI, Acrua doesn't have recommended service mileage for your timing belt. You can check the condition of your belt by removing one of the upper belt covers and checking the wear of the belts cogs (teeth) you are looking for excessive space at the cam gear. If the belt is oil soaked it needs to be replaced and the leak fixed. I would recommend changing the water pump when you do have your timing belt done. Hope this helps.

88 acura lgnd alternator belt

I wrote another blog about getting the alternator (belt) off. The back cover of the alternator comes off with 3 nuts. The brushes are in a little holder with two screws holding it in place. Your will find that one or both of the brushes are worn down. You can get just the brushes on Ebay for $8 and shipping for a couple of pairs. They are soldered into the backside of the holder. Don't "blow" the dust around and simply wipe the commutator with a shop towel and put it back together.

Disconnect battery, disconnect altenator wire harness. Remove bolts and pull out altenator. When reinstalling new altenator, there should be an adjustable pulley called tensioner pulley that will either have to be pulled up or pushed down in order to put belt back on.
