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
You need a new alternator on a 1998? Wow! I had to replace one on a 1986 about two years ago, and the one I removed was in it when the car left the factory. Having changed a few alternators in Accords, I almost think pulling the engine would be the easiest way to accomplish this job. Some guys will tell you this isn't necessary, but I think the easiest way to change the alternator…
Where can you find a fuse panel layout or door panel sheet for the main fuse panel of a 1986 Honda Accord LX?
Your 1986 Honda Accord is idling rough and dies when you turn a corner or stop What could be causing this?
Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.
