The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

I will give you the will probably decide it's too much work, because it is.

You need a socket set with torque wrench, a set of combination wrenches, a pickle fork ball joint separator, 3 pound sledgehammer, flex head 3/8" ratchet, jack stands, a floor jack and a transmission jack. You also need a clutch kit, some grease, three quarts of 5W30 synthetic oil or Honda MTL, a clutch cable because they wear out, and a lot of old newspapers, rags, mineral spirits etc and a manual so you get the torque specs.

Start by unhooking the battery and loosening the front lug nuts. Jack the car up and put it on stands. Remove the front wheels. Undo the axle nuts and the lower ball joint nuts. Pop loose the ball joints with the pickle fork and remove the axles. Now unhook everything attached to the transaxle - cables and brackets. Drain the transaxle, unbolt it and remove it. Inspect the axle boots and ball joint boots and replace the part they're on if the boots are torn.

Now you can see the clutch. Open the clutch kit. Remove everything from your car that's in the box and put on the new parts. If you got a new clutch cable put it in now. And finally, put everything back on the car that you took off. This is a massive job.

Depends on the year. All Accords' made after 1989 have a hydraulic clutch.
