There is an adjustment bolt on the back side of the idler pulley . you just loosen up the nut on the front of the pulley , then turn the 12 mm bolt under the pump on the back side of the pulley.

IM JUST WONDERING HOW HARD IT IS TO REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR IN MY 1995 HONDA ACCORD EX 4 CYLINDER VTEC


Hi, you have to remove the power steering pump to get the alternator out. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

1994-95 Accord

See Figure 4
EXCEPT V-6 MODELS
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive cable.
Remove the power steering pump.
  • Drain the fluid from the system as follows:
    1. Disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir.
    2. Start the engine and allow it to run at fast idle. Turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Shut off the engine immediately; don't run the pump without fluid.
    3. Reattach the hose.

  • Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt.
  • Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove the pump.

    When on the freeway and my power steering "turned off", which has


    With the power steering quitting immediately, it indicates a broken belt or serious lack of power steeering fluid. If it's fluid, you have a leak allowing it to escape.

    The "tapping noise" sounds like it might be the belt flapping around with engine running.

    How do i disconnect the 4ws


    Compare your rear knuckles to a non 4WS. You have to remove the steering extension shaft leading back there as well as the rear tie rods. The rear knuckles have to be locked so they don't steer. Might need to swap some of the components from a junkyard 88 89 90 91 Prelude.

    89 Honda Prelude failing emissions rich


    is everything stock? and you have catalitic converter in place?

    Stop by Schucks auto supply and have them run the codes. i'm sure there is a code if you cant pass emissions. your check engine light bulb is probably out.

    and usually the first cause is the first o2 sensor.

    Belt removal or change


    i'm not 100 percent possitive but i assume you will have to loosen the tensioner to serpetine belt and it should have a adjustment and just loosen the adjustment. if thats the case you can jump the power steering belt off and back on by prying it with a screw driver and rotating the crankshaft pully
