Accords don't use shock absorbers up front.

Problem solved.



Real answer:

Remove wheel
Remove 17mm nut & bolt at bottom of strut fork.
Remove 14mm bolt from top of strut fork.
Remove 12mm bolt that attaches brake lines to strut.
Using hammer, remove fork from strut.
Remove 3 nuts that hold strut to strut tower.
Remove entire strut assembly.

Place strut assembly in spring compressor.
Remove strut mount retaining nut.
Transfer spring seat, spring, bump stop, and dust boot to new strut.
Install new strut in spring compressor and compress spring.
Reuse old strut mount and install retaining nut.

Install in reverse order of removal.

Please PM xtrac1 for further detailed explanations and diagrams.


Edit: Oops, that's a pic of the rear. PM xtrac1 for a pic of the front.

Take off the radiator cap and replace everything else.
