They are right hand threads but they are put on with loctite.

They even give mechanics with air tools a hard time somtimes.

There is a special tool that works on some Honda engines (below)

 

  • Remove the accessory drive belts.

  • If necessary, secure the crankshaft with a flywheel holding tool.

  • For some engines, a special pulley holder tool is available to secure the pulley while removing and installing the bolt (refer to the illustration).

    Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

    EdUSA

    HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

    SummerUSA

    I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

    Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

    Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
