How do you replace the alternator on a 1986 Honda Accord?

Take the negative battery cable off then the wires off the alt then loosten the bolts holding it on and remove the belt then remove the bolts and alternator.

Hi. I'm the fellow who put this question out on Friday night. Don't drop the axle if all you want to do is change the brushes. Just remove the alternator from it's bracket, disconnect the two wires goimg to it and just sit the alternator in a way you can do the brushes. Brushesprocedure is about 5 minutes. Good luck, Donald
