FOR DP-FI SYSTEMS The easy eay is to unbolt the alternator and let it sit for a minute. Now literally give the Honda a hug... put your left arm down the left side of the intake and then underneath it. Now grab the alt. with your right hand. Wiggle the stupid thing around until it can be passed from right hand to left hand, under the intake and out the other side. This takes a lot of wiggling and turning, but it is possible. I just did it last week.

For MP-FI SYSTEMS This one is a little more cooperative. Unbolt the master cylinder from the brake booster and shove it over to the left. Alternator will now come straight up.

Have patience. This job is truly a pain in the taillight socket. I've got 2 CRX's and I had to do this 3 times already...

You could also drop the drivers side cv shaft and it will fall out.
