and here is why,
My father removed my sisters alternator in 20 minutes, He did not
remove the axle, and he doesn't remember how he did it, but I know my
father is not capable of removing the axle in 20 minutes. He believes
he may have removed the master cylinder, but unless the master cylinder
comes out without needing to disconnect a clevis type assemble from
under the floor board, I cannot believe he did this either, because he
is not that flexible, or skilled. Please if anyone is holding out on
the secret of nyhm here, i would love to know, what is the easiest way
to remove it from a 1992 Integra?
thanks in advace.
You have to remove the left driveshaft. There is no other way to do it.
I suppose it might be possible by removing the master cylinder, but the
intake manifold and brake booster loom rather large in there. I very much
doubt you could take it out the top.
If all you need to do is change the brushes, that can be done without
unmounting the alternator from its bracket and without removing the
I'm almost positive I did the alternator on my '93 without removing the
driveshaft. As I remember, I had to jack up the driver's side high, turn
the alt and pull it up on the other side of the block - I think the brake
booster had to come out?. I'll have to double check to refresh my memory.
I'm very reluctant to challenge anything Tegger comes up with because he's
helped me over the years and it a fantastic resource to the DA community. I
don't know how I fit the round peg in the square hole but there is a trick.

I have it on very good authority that it is impossible to remove the

I did have a good look just now though, and I suppose it *might* be
possible to withdraw the alternator upwards if the brake master cylinder
and booster were removed, along with the bracket for the fuel return line.
There might be *just* enough room for it, provided you turn the alternator
just so... Kinda the long way around, don't you think? With proper tools,
the driveshaft is pretty easy to remove.
He's probably referring to "DA9", which is Honda's model designation for
the 2-door hatch (or 3-door if you're in the marketing department)
The 2-door hatches were DA9, and the 4-door sedans were DB1.
Examples of VIN fragments:
DA9 = 2-door hatch
3 = manual transmission
4= base trim level (RS)
DB1 = 4-door sedan
4 = automatic transmission
6 = GS trim level.
If you want to get even more mysteriously Teggish, you can refer to the
"SK7" community. All parts unique to the second-generation Integra have SK7
either stamped on them, or as the middle portion of the part number.
