You have to remove the lt cv 1/2 shaft so the alternator will drop down, this means you remove the spindal nut & disconnect the lower control arm ball joint so you could swing the wheel hub out from the axle. its a lot of work for an alternator change. lots of luck!!! When you do it look over the cv boot & replaced the 1/2 shaft if its torn. You could get a rebuilt 1/2 shaft for about 79.00 with lifetime warranty.

  • Most people would give the above answer, and if you have the tools and the know-how that is probably the best way to do it, but there is another way and you need a friend to help you do it. After removing the belt and bolts, rotate the alternater over and remove both of the electrical hook-ups. Once you have done this, rotate the alternator so that the pulley side is facing the passengers side of the vehicle. It can then be rotated over the lower engine frame towards the passenger side. Then carefully pull it up the rear of the engine block being careful to reattach any of the lines that are removed in the process. Once again, it is impossible to do it this way without help. Hopefully this helps. Good luck!!!

how to replace alternator on 2002 Honda Accord 6 cylinder?

When Honda designed their V-6 engine they did not repeat one of the worst mistakes they made on the inline 4. On an inline 4 Honda, the alternator is stuffed between the engine and the firewall and you need to take apart half the front end to get to it. The alternator on a V-6 Honda is between the engine and radiator - very easy to get to. unhook the battery, loosen the two bolts that hold the alternator in, pivot the alternator to loosen the belt, remove the wiring to the alternator, remove the two bolts, lift out the alternator...if the new alternator doesn't have a pulley move the pulley from old to new, then bolt it in leaving the two bolts loose for now, hook up the wiring, put the belt back on, adjust belt tension and tighten everything down good before reconnecting the battery.

Remove the upper through bolt of the alternator, remove the bottom bolt of the alternator by unscrewing the nut. Slide the belt off pulley. Install the new alternator. Replace and tighten the bolts (You will need to use a torque wrench to tighten to the proper foot-pounds of torque. You can find the torque specs for you bolts by going to a Honda forum). Adjust the tension bolt until there is enough tension on the belt (if not enough tension you will hear the belt squeak when you stat your car).
