Labor should be just under an hour in the Mitchell labor guide (around .9) with a standard dealer rate of $75.00-$85.00 per hour.

The alternator varies in price, usual list price on the alternator is $279.68, you can find this cheaper, or have it rebuilt much cheaper if the bearings are in good shape as usually the regulator, stator, and brushes come in a kit.

Doing this yourself is quite simple and requires 10mm, 12mm, and 14mm sockets and wrenches, it's completely accessible, however remember always disconnect the battery before performing any operation that involves electrical wiring of any sort.

Does Honda still make the Honda Civic SI ? That is a good question and I would have to unfortunately answer that with a no. Year 2005 was the last year for the make of this particular car.

You will need the intake and exhaust manifold gaskets. I would also install new head bolts.

No, they are different generations and therefore require different hoods. A 98 hood would only fit on a civic from 1996-2000

The replacement cost for an alternator in the 2005 Honda Accord LX is about $165 plus labor. It is possible to change an alternator of this type in about 15 minutes, but most repair places might charge an hourly fee for labor. Labor cost will depend on where the work is done.

either your belt is loose or alternator is faulting out go to nearest part store and have it tested for most accurate test remove alternator from vehicle I've had that happen before and in the vehicle alternator tested good. removed from vehicle it tested bad. replace alternator no further problems

Yes as long as they are both the same body style (coupes, hatchback's, or sedans).

It is built into the alternator. I would just replace the alternator.

I would suggest bringing your Civic to a Honda service center. This is a difficult job and if not done correctly could result in severe engine damage. The NJ Honda dealer that I use has factory trained technicians who use only the best equipment and genuine Honda parts. I wouldn't trust anyone other than their experts to work on my 2002 Honda Accord.
