1990 Acura Legend Starter Removal Instructions

Removing the starter from the 1990 Acura Legend is not difficult. The hardest part of the entire process is crawling under the car. The starter is located on the bottom of the engine near the trans-axle. On some, though not all, Acura Legend automobiles, you may need to remove the exhaust pipe to gain access to the starter. The removal process will take between 30 and 40 minutes, and there are no special tools required for the project.

Tools Used: Automobile jack, Jack stand, Wheel chocks, Marker, Masking tape, Metric socket set, Metric wrench set

Starter Removal

Park the car on a level surface and place wheel chocks behind the rear wheels.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal with a wrench to loosen the nut.

Raise the car on the driver's side with a jack and place a jack stand under the frame of the car.

Mark the wires on the starter with a marker and masking tape, noting their proper locations. Disconnect the wires from the starter, using a wrench to remove the nuts. If the exhaust is blocking the starter as with some Legend models, you will have to remove the pipe. You can do this by removing the bolts from the brackets with the wrench.

Unbolt the starter with a ratchet and socket. Pull the starter away from the engine.

Tips & Warnings

Always be sure to wear safety glasses or goggles when you work under the car to prevent getting debris in your eyes.
