This was very helpful with the alternator replacement on my 2003 V6 Accord. Only tip that I would add is to remove the top bracket (black) that the alternator screws into. Also, I had to hit it with a mallet from the right side to get it to come out as there was some sort of steel sleeve holding the other one in. I loosened it with wd40.
