How do you recharge the AC compressor on a 1989 Honda Accord LX?
Technically, you can't, unless you're have a certificate to purchase and handle Freon-12, which is what the '89s had in their AC system. My advice would be to convert to the new coolant, which can be found just about anywhere. Your local auto part store, and even big department store ending in 'Mart' should have kits that convert to 134.

Answer . The oil drain plug is located under the bottom of the engine to the right side of the oil pan. It requires a 14mm socket to rewmove it.

Answer . Disconnect the negative battery cable. There are two wires connected to the alternator remove them. Then remove the left drive axle or remove the left engine mount…,place a jack under the ol pan, raise and support the engine. This will provide te space to remove the alternator because it is very difficult to remove it from the top side of the engine.Loosen the alternator bolts, slacken the belt, then alternator can now be removed from the space created.
Answer . \ntake it to a mechanic
First you have to remove the power steering pump. Then you need to remove the alternator. You might have to remove the brackets that hold the previously removed items as well.…
I've always thought that the adjustment was located behind the parking brake(interior) take the back cover off inside of the car, and theres a little but that u tighten to tig…hten the brake. Then again i may be incorrect, but that is how i fixed my parking brake on my 89 Honda accord lx-i Answer Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission. You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle??? Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it.Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there.You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels.To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables.Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight.I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way.When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more.Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little.And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.
Answer . The compressor pulley is the closest pulley to the ground in the set of pulleys driving the belt. Driver's side towards the front of the car underneath all of the… pullleys and main drive belt.
If you are facing the front of the vehicle the AC compressor is located on the right side of the engine, below the alternator.

you refill right through the dip stick
please tell me
find the spot with a "nipple that the recharger nozzle goes on and it should look like a oil filter that is big and has small tubes leadin out of it
Check for a blown fuse. If the fuse is good then apply 12 volts directly to the blower motor. If it runs then the Blower Motor Resistor Pack is defective. If it does not run t…he motor itself is defective.
In Honda Civic
it will be on the front lower left side of engine below p/s pump.
I would suggest contacting a Honda dealership and get a price on anAC compressor from their parts department. Then, compare pricesonline...they sometimes may cost less, but sh…ipping costs maynegate the price discount.
