Steps on how to replace alternator of 91 honda accord.
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\011\015\012\011\015\0121.\015\012Disconnect the negative battery terminal cable from your battery on\015\012your 1991 Honda Accord. Be sure to double check that the ignition is\015\012in the Off position before disconnecting the battery. You should also\015\012wait for fifteen minutes after disconnecting the battery before doing\015\012anything else to your engine. Since the alternator is located near\015\012the top of the engine, there is no need to lift the car.
    2. Place a drain pan\015\012\011underneath the power steering reservoir and loosen the feed and\015\012\011return lines using a line wrench. Loosen and remove the feed and\015\012\011return lines from the pump as well, being sure to catch any power\015\012\011steering fluid in the drain pan. Use a socket wrench to remove the\015\012\011power steering pump on your 1991 Honda Accord. Make sure that you\015\012\011put the pump along with its two connector bolts in a place where you\015\012\011will not lose them or forget that those specific bolts go with the\015\012\011pump. You may also need to hold the pump over the drain pan for a\015\012\011minute to get any power steering fluid drained that is resting in\015\012\011the pump itself.
    3. Disconnect the cruise\015\012\011control actuator from the engine, but do not remove the actuator\015\012\011cable. The entire actuator unit can be moved out of the way with the\015\012\011cable still attached to it. It will only take removing the single\015\012\011bolt connecting the actuator with the rest of the engine; This will\015\012\011save you some labor and hardship later on so that you do not have to\015\012\011reconnect the actuator cable.
    4. Use your hands to\015\012\011disconnect the electrical connection tab that connects the 1991\015\012\011Honda Accord's electrical system to the alternator. If the\015\012\011connection tab is stuck, then use a flat head screwdriver to gently\015\012\011pry it off.
    5. Use a socket wrench with\015\012\011extensions and pivot heads to remove the alternator terminal nut as\015\012\011well as the wire from the terminal itself. Loosen the adjusting bolt\015\012\011and the alternator nut, both of which are found on the bottom side\015\012\011of the alternator, below the main alternator pulley. Be sure to lay\015\012\011the adjusting bolt and the alternator nut in a place where you will\015\012\011not misplace or lose them.
    6. Remove the belt from the\015\012\011alternator pulley, which should now be loose enough, after taking\015\012\011out the adjusting bolt, that you can stretch it over the pulleys and\015\012\011slide it off of the alternator system. You should be able to stretch\015\012\011the belt off from the pulleys with your hands.
    7. Use the socket wrench to\015\012\011unscrew the lower through-bolt. You may need to use special pivot\015\012\011adaptors to reach the head of the lower through-bolt, which is\015\012\011located underneath the main alternator pulley. There is also a small\015\012\011support stay that is attached to the lower through-bolt, which\015\012\011should be removed after the through-bolt is pulled out.
    8. Use a socket wrench to\015\012\011remove the upper through-bolt and carefully support and remove the\015\012\011old alternator.
    9. Install the new\015\012\011alternator. Tighten the upper through-bolt to 33 foot-pounds by\015\012\011using\015\012\011a torque wrench. Reinsert the small stay, the lower through-bolt\015\012\011and the adjusting bolt in reverse order of their removal with old\015\012\011alternator. Slide the belt back onto the pulley system with the new\015\012\011alternator in place. Reinsert the alternator nut and tighten it to\015\012\011adjust the belt tension. The alternator nut should be tightened to\015\012\01119 foot-pounds.
    10.\015\012\011Reinstall all of the other parts that were taken off to remove the\015\012\011alternator from the system. First make sure that the electrical\015\012\011connection tab is resecured. Reinstall the cruise control actuator\015\012\011and the power steering pump. Reconnect the power steering pump and\015\012\011power steering reservoir feed and return lines with the line wrench.\015\012\011Be sure to refill the reservoir with new power steering fluid.\015\012\011Reconnect the negative battery-terminal cable and try turning the\015\012\011car on. Allow for it to run through a couple of cycles and observe\015\012\011the new alternator as well as the parts that you just recently put\015\012\011back onto your 1991 Honda Accord. Make sure that all parts are\015\012\011working just as well, if not better, in the case of the alternator,\015\012\011than before.
