DIAGNOSIS
(Driving Method)

1. Drive the car in a circle in an open parking lot at approximately 10 mph with the
brakes lightly applied.

2. Have an assistant stand in the center of the circle and listen for the clicking
noise.

3. Drive the car in the opposite direction. The assistant should be able to tell
which axle is making the noise.

DIAGNOSIS
(On-Hoist Method)

1. Raise the car on a hoist and start the engine.

2. With the transmission in first gear (manual transmission) or D4 (automatic
transmission), increase the engine speed to 2000 rpm.

3. While maintaining the same throttle position, apply the brakes to load the
engine speed to 1500 rpm.

4. Turn the wheels slowly to full left and full right positions. Have an assistant
listen to determine which axle is making the noise.

NOTE :
A driveshaft with a light degree of noise may not be detected by this on-hoist
method.

REPAIR PROCEDURE

1. Remove the driveshaft as described in Section 16 of the appropriate service
manual.


Image


2. Use diagonal cuffers to cut the two boot bands and the outboard joint boot,
then remove them from the driveshaft.

Boot Band Tool
The replacement boot bands for driveshaft CV joint boots have changed. The
replacement bands are a double loop type that requires a new required special tool for
proper installation.

One Boot Band Tool (TIN KD-3191) was shipped to each current dealer. To order
additional boot band tools, they are available from American Honda using the normal
parts ordering procedures, or from your local tool supplier.

Boot Band Tool: TIN KD-3191

PROCEDURE

1. Remove the old boot band. Take care not to damage the boot.
2. Remove and inspect the boot. Replace the boot if it is worn or damaged.
3. Install the boot, and fill it with the specified amount of grease. Refer to the
appropriate service manual for the grease type and amount.


Image


4. Install the replacement boot band onto the boot with the end of the band toward
the front of the vehicle.
5. Take up the slack in the boot band by hand, and hold the boot band in place.

Image


6. Measure and mark the band with a felt-tip pen the specified distance from the
clip:

- If you are installing a new boot, mark the band approximately 10 to 14 mm
(0.4 to 0.6 in.) from the clip.
- If you are reinstalling the original boot, mark the band 10 mm (0.4 in.) from
the clip.

Image


7. Thread the free end of the band through the nose section of the boot band tool
and into the slot on the winding mandrel.
8. Take up the slack in the boot band by hand, then slowly turn the winding
mandrel with a wrench. Tighten the band until the mark you made in step 6
meets the edge of the clip.


Image



9. Raise up the boot band tool to bend the free end of the band 90 degrees, then
center-punch the clip.

Image


10. Unwind the boot band tool, and cut off the excess 5 to 10 mm (0.2 to 0.4 in.) from
the clip.

Image


11. Secure the end of the boot band by tapping it down over the clip with a hammer.
12. Make sure that the band and clip do not interfere with anything and that the
band does not move.
13. Repeat steps 4 through 12 to install the boot band on the other end of the boot.

Brake Disc Refinishing
(Supersedes 86-014, dated September 29, 1986)

[NEW]
Brake disc replacement under warranty is not allowed unless the disc is beyond its
and rear brake disc maximum refinishing limit specifications.

Front Brake Discs

[NEW]
Whenever a front brake disc is replaced, it must be refinished on the car. Refinishing
new front discs is included in the flat-rate time for disc replacement.

[NEW]
To avoid brake vibration, always refinish brake discs on the car with the Kwik-Way or
Snap-on brake lathe. Purchasing information for these lathes is in Service Bulletin
87-035, Front Brake Disc Refinishing Equipment, filed in the Special Tools section.

[NEW]
Follow these tips to get the best results from your on-car brake lathe. (For detailed
instructions, refer to the lathe's operating manual.)

[NEW]
^ Before refinishing, warm the engine to normal operating temperature.

[NEW]
^ On 2WD vehicles, lift both front wheels off the ground. On the SLX, lift all four
wheels off the ground.

[NEW]
^ On the SLX, make sure the hub nut is properly adjusted (with no end play) and the
transmission is in 4H.


Image


[NEW]
^ On all vehicles, use a tie-down strap to secure the disc opposite to the one being
refinished.

Image


[NEW]
^ Install the vibration damper on the disc, and install the protective band around the
wheel lug nuts.

Image


[NEW]
^ Mount the lathe to the caliper bracket with Honda Quick-Mount Adapters. The
adapters can be ordered through the Honda Tool and Equipment Program; contact
Special Tools at 800-346-6327. The advantage of using the adapters is that they
don't have to be removed from the lathe once they are installed.


Image


[NEW]
^ Use the aligning bar tool to ensure that the lathe moves square to the center of the
brake disc. The disc should turn toward the cutting bits.

Image


[NEW]
^ Use "Kwik-Way" cutting bits, P/N KW109-1092-23, and the holding screws that
come with them. These bits are stamped "K W." They can be purchased from
American Honda using the normal parts ordering procedures, or by contacting a
Kwik-Way distributor. The Kwik-Way P/N is 109-1092-23.

Image


[NEW]
^ Before using the lathe, inspect the tips of the cutting bits with a magnifying glass
to make sure they are not worn out. Each bit has three tips.


[NEW]
^ Do not set the cutting depth on the lathe to more than 0.2 mm (0.008 in.). This is
two divisions on the cutting knob.

[NEW]
^ To refinish, the transmission must be in first gear (D3 or D4, if the shift selector
doesn't have a first gear position) with the engine at idle (not fast idle). If the
transmission and engine are at higher gears and speeds, you will damage the
cutting bits.

Rear Brake Discs

Refinish brake discs off the car with conventional disc refinishing equipment.

Image


DENSO HALOGEN LEAK DETECTOR KIT:

ORDERING INFORMATION

Can be ordered through the American Honda Tool and Equipment Program at
800-346-6327. Ask for the HLD-100.

USAGE TIPS

Here are some useful hints when using the HLD-100. Refer to the Operator's Manual
for complete operating instructions.

^ When using the leak detector for the first time, allow the leak detector to warm up
for 2 minutes with the probe in a clean atmosphere; this lets the sensor
temperature stabilize.

^ Calibration check should be done in the "Search 2" mode. Once done, the other
check modes don't need calibrating.

^ If checking an evaporator through the drain hose, avoid drawing water into the
probe. This could shorten the life and function of the internal pump and sensor.

^ Avoid creasing the flexible probe extension when you bend it. This could restrict
air flow and give false readings.

^ Because the detector recalibrates itself for ambient gases, you may have to move
away from the leak momentarily to clear the sniffer, then reapproach the leak.

^ When removing the clear probe tip, be careful not to lose the flow ball.

Finding Leaks in the Evaporator Area

1. Start the engine, and turn on the A/C.

2. Set the Fresh/Recirc button to Fresh, then turn the blower motor to High for 15
seconds.

3. Turn oft the blower, and set the Fresh/Recirc button to the Recirculation
position. Wait 10 minutes to allow any leaking refrigerant to accumulate in the
vents.

Image



4. Attach the flexible probe extension, and insert it in the center grille.

5. Turn the blower motor to Low for about half a second; this will force any
accumulated refrigerant out through the vent.

GENERAL TIPS WHEN CHECKING FOR LEAKS

^ Both R-12 and R-134a are heavier than air, so always check 360 degrees around all
fittings.

^ If the system is very low on refrigerant , charge it to its normal capacity. (Some
leaks are impossible to find unless the system is operating at normal pressures.)

^ Refrigerant leaks are also oil leaks. The easiest way to spot a leak is to look for
joints or components coated with oily dust. Check for damage and corrosion at the
same time.

^ When checking the service ports for leaks, be sure the cap seals are in place and
the caps are tight. The cap is used as the final seal in the system, not just to keep
dirt out of the schrader valve.

^ Check the whole system in a continuous path; don't stop the first time the detector
indicates a leak. Check all fittings, couplings, service ports, pressure switches,
welded areas, and areas around attachment points on lines and components.

^ When checking the crimped metal ends on a rubber hose, wiggle the hose around.

^ Move the probe slowly (one inch per second is the recommended rate), and keep it
within 1/4 inch of the components. Moving the probe even slower at closer
proximities increase the likelihood of finding the leak.

^ Check the low-pressure side when the system is not running. Check the
high-pressure side when the system is running and also right after turning it off.
(The air from the cooling fans may give you false alarms.) Since the compressor
the system is running and when it's off.

^ Verify apparent leaks by blowing the area with compressed air, then recheck for
leaks. In case of a very large leak, blowing out the area may help pinpoint the exact
source of the leak.

SERVICING THE HLD-100

Here are some servicing tips for the HLD-100. Refer to the Operator's Manual for
detailed service procedures.

^ Check and replace the probe filter if it is clogged. Be careful not to lose the flow
ball when doing this.

^ The reference calibration vial can be expected to last approximately 6 months.
Replace it when it is empty.

^ If the sensitivity adjustment dial does not calibrate the sensor, replace the sensor.

Supplemental Restraint System Inspection


Dear Acura Owner:

The maintenance schedule in the Owner's Manual requires that vehicles with a
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) have the SRS inspected 10 years after the date of

manufacture. The manufacture date of your vehicle can be found on the certification label
attached to the driver's doorjamb. The inspection procedure is very simple; you can do it
yourself. If the system should have a problem, you should, for your own safety, have the
system repaired by an authorized Acura dealer. Cost for repairs to the SRS system on

vehicles out of warranty are the responsibility of the owner.

The following procedures may not apply to all conditions or colors. Use the procedure
that best suits the condition and color of the vehicle you're repairing.

Repairing and Polishing the Painted Surface

The goal of a minor paint repair is to correct the damage to the upper layer of the painted
surface. This is done by removing a thin layer of paint (no more than 0.5 mil) and then
restoring the luster by polishing the repaired surface. A quick way to determine the depth
of a scratch in the paint is to run your fingernail across the scratch.

If your fingernail catches on the scratch, the area will need to be wet sanded and polished.

When doing scratch or swirl mark repairs, use only quality products from one
manufacturer. Each manufacturer has its own set of paint repair products that have
matching materials. Mixing materials from different manufacturers, or using inexpensive
products, compromises the repair quality.

An electric polisher with an adjustable rpm control set between 1,500 and 1,800 rpm is best
for polishing. When using a polisher, faster is not better. Too much polisher speed and

Removing Swirl Marks

Most swirl marks can be removed by using a foam polishing pad and polishing material.
Use the polisher at 1,500 - 1,800 rpm with a small amount of polishing material on the pad.
Always begin with the finest polishing material. II necessary, progress to the next coarser
material only when the fine materials are ineffective.

When polishing, work in small sections (approximately 24" x 24"). Avoid running the
polishing pad over edges or character lines where the paint is more susceptible to burning
through. Let the cleaner do the work. Do not apply too much force! Forcing the polishing
pad could cause deep cuts into the paint and might damage the surface so badly that it
would need to be repainted.

Polishing Dark Colors

This additional procedure, after the polishing process described above, is important to
reduce any chance of swirl marks, which show more on dark colors. When polishing is
completed, use the same type of foam polishing pad on a random orbital polisher. Apply
the finest polishing material to a 24" x 24" work area. Start the polisher, and make three to
four passes over the work area. Remove the glaze residue with a cotton terry cloth or soft
flannel cloth.

Wet Sanding

This process is used to repair scratches and acid rain damage deeper than 0.2 mil. The
object is to remove as littlepaint material as possible. When wet sanding, stop frequently
and dry the work area. This will allow you to see if the wet sanding has removed the
damage.

Start by soaking a 1500 or 2000 grit wet/dry sanding paper in water for 15 minutes. Rap the
soaked wet/dry sanding paper around a soft sanding pad. Sand the affected area in one
direction across the scratched surface to highlight the affected area. Flush the area with
clean water. To remove any sanding scratches left by the wet sanding process, use a foam
polishing pad and a polishing material. Refer to Removing Swirl Marks.

Final Inspection

When the polishing process is done, the paint surface may look perfect, but residue can
hide very fine scratches that will become apparent after a few washings. This is especially
true for darker colors.

Start the final inspection by spraying a 50/50 solution of isopropyl alcohol and water on
the work area and then wiping it dry.

NOTE:
Avoid spraying the solution on any unpainted plastic parts, such as taillights, turn
signal lenses, reflectors, etc. The solution can cause cracking.

Inspect the repaired area, and repeat the polishing process if necessary. Finish the
inspection by waxing the completed vehicle with a high-quality wax. Use the wax
recommended by the paint repair supplies manufacturer you have chosen.

Preventive Maintenance

Avoiding scratches and dents while the vehicle is in your dealership inventory requires
some preventive maintenance. To help reduce the occurrence of scratches and dents,

follow these recommendations.

^ Park vehicles far enough apart to prevent door dents and dings.

^ Leave the exterior shipping protection on the vehicle until it is ready to be sold.

^ Implement and use an inventory age control system.

^ Use deionized water to reduce water spotting.

^ Wash the vehicles with deionized water, soap, and a wash mitt at least once a week.

NOTE:
Using a wash mitt will remove any residual dirt from the paint surface. If a wash mitt
is not used, the residual dirt on the painted surface will scratch the paint when the
surface is dried with a chamois or towel.

^ Use a clean chamois or terry cloth towel to dry the vehicles.

Belt Tension Gauge Calibration and Repair
Drive belt tension can be critical to the bearing life of the A/C compressor, alternator,
etc. Tension should be checked and adjusted when a new belt is installed, and when a
used belt is removed and reinstalled during a repair. For that reason, each Acura
dealership is being sent a Belt Tension Gauge Set (T/N O7TGG-001000A). This set

Belt tension gauge (T/N O7JGG-001010A)
Belt tension gauge extension cable
Belt tension gauge checker (T/N O7TGG-001010A)

Front Seat Belt Replacement Warranty Policy

(Supersedes 92-020, dated March 16, 1992)

Warranty policy for front seat belt replacement is to replace either the belt/retractor
replacement of only the failed half of a belt, not the entire assembly (see PARTS
INFORMATION).

COMPONENT REPLACEMENT

Front seat belts are made by several suppliers, and some are sold as individual
components (two separate halves); they are not stocked as a complete set. Therefore,
whenever you replace a belt, make sure the new belt half is the same type and from
the same manufacturer as the original - otherwise, the belt may not buckle properly.

To determine the manufacturer and type (or "model") of the belt, look for the white
tag on the original belt in the car. The tag is on the retractor side of the belt (visible at
the lower attachment point), or on the belt if you pull the belt all the way out.

From the tag, mark down the manufacturer's name (either Nippon Seiko K.K. or
Takata), the belt "model" number, and the date of manufacture.

If the tag is missing or illegible, look on the buckle half of the belt for the name
Nippon Seiko K.K. or the stylized "T" mark for Takata.

NOTE: Some seat belts may have NSK Warner K.K. as the manufacturer's name. Use
Nippon Seiko K.K. belts as the replacement.

Take the information to your Parts Department to order the proper replacement belt.

NOTE: For more information on seat belts and seat belt related items read:
- 2-Point Automatic Seat Belt Troubleshooting (ServiceNews, July "90")
- Lap Belt Retracts Slowly (Service Bulletin 90-008, April "90")
- Twisted Belt Buckles (ServiceNews, March "91")
- Seat Belt Slow to Retract (Service Bulletin 91-050, Revised January "92")
- Understanding the Automatic Shoulder Belt System (Service News, January "92")

information. Most repairs do not require seat belt component replacement.

PARTS INFORMATION

For front seat belt replacement ordering information and availability, contact your
parts center.

WARRANTY INFORMATION

Warranty Coverage:
Seat belts that fail to function properly during normal use are covered under warranty
for the useful life of the car.

Warranty Does Not Cover:

- Malfunction due to abuse, alteration, accidental damage, or damage resulting from
a collision or misuse.
- Replacement of a properly functioning seat belt for cosmetic or comfort reasons.

Example of customer letter:

Important Safety Recall Notice

Dear Acura Owner:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the defect provisions of the National Traffic
and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

The Reason For This Notice

Honda has determined that front seat belt buckle release buttons have broken and others
may break in the future, in some 1986 - 91 Acura cars equipped with seat belts made by the
Takata Corporation. These seat belt buckle release buttons are made of red plastic, and are
marked "PRESS" If a button breaks, pieces may fall into the buckle assembly. If this
occurs, the buckle may not operate properly, thereby creating a safety risk.

To prevent this problem from occurring, Acura will replace all broken front seat belt
buckles , free of charge. In addition, Acura will modify all unbroken buckles manufactured

Why Seat Belts Are Important

If your seat belt buckle is broken or does not operate properly, you should have it
replaced as soon as possible. Seat belts are the most important part of your car's safety
equipment Acura urges you to wear your seat belt whenever you drive, and to make sure
that your passengers also wear theirs. If you do not wear your seat belt, your chances of
being killed or seriously Injured during a collision are much higher than If you are wearing
a seat belt. That Is why seat belt use Is required by law in almost every state.

What You Should Do

Call any authorized Acura dealer and make an appointment to have your car repaired. If
either release button shows any sign of breakage or cracking, or if either buckle fails to
operate properly, the dealer will replace the buckle, free of charge.

Even If both front seat belt release buttons appear to be In good condition, and both
buckles operate properly, your seat belt buckles will need to be modified to prevent future
button breakage. Modification of the seat belt buckles will be free of charge and parts are
now available.

Replacement or modification of the seat belt buckles will take less than half an hour;
however, the dealer may need to keep your car for a longer period because of their
workload. Please call for an appointment.

If You Have a Problem

If your Acura dealer Is unable to, or fails to, make the necessary repairs or replacements,
free of charge, please contact:

Acura Campaign Information Service Office
American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
1919 Torrance Boulevard
Torrance, CA 90501-2746

The toll-free number is (800) 999-1009.

or call the toll-free Auto Safety Hotline at (800) 434-9393 (Washington D.C.-area residents
may call [202] 3660123).

Warranty Reminder


For safety, we urge you to regularly check the condition of your seat belts. If you notice
that a release button is broken or if you experience any problems with seat belt operation,
contact your dealer immediately. Remember, Acura has a lifetime seat belt warranty that
applies to every Acura automobile. It covers any seat belt component that fails to
function properly during normal use (see your warranty booklet for details).

Special Notice to Lessors

Converting R-12 A/C Systems to R-134a

BACKGROUND


Because of environmental concerns, production of R-12 refrigerant is being phased out.
Honda is making retrofit kits available to convert systems that currently use R-12
refrigerant to R-134a refrigerant use.

PREPARATION

Before retrofitting the A/C system to use R-134a, test its performance and inspect all
components.

^ If the system is not cooling correctly, determine the cause (restriction, refrigerant
leak, system contamination, etc.) and repair it before continuing.

^ If the system is not fully charged, determine if there are any leaks and repair them
before continuing.

^ If the compressor is making noise, repair or replace it before continuing. Refer to Parts
Information Bulletin B94-0028 for the proper components.

^ If the system has been open to the atmosphere, replace the receiver/dryer.

RETROFIT KIT INSTALLATION

1. Use the R-12 recovery/recycling station to remove the R-12 from the system.

NOTE:
Failure to remove all the R-12 from the system will cause contamination of the R-134a
recovery/recycling station.

2. Disconnect the R-12 recovery/recycling station.

3. 1992-94 Vigor only: Remove the Schrader valves from the charge valves. The retrofit
valves in the kit have their own Schrader valves.

4. Use a shop towel wetted with Honda brake cleaner to clean the threads on the
existing valves. Apply Locktite (included in the kit) to the threads of the existing
valves. Install the R-134a retrofit valves from the kit.

5. Connect the R-134a recovery/recycling station to the system. Evacuate the system.

6. Add 120 ml of PAG oil (included in the kit) to the system.

7. Determine the amount of R-134a refrigerant needed to charge the system by
subtracting 50 ml (1-2/3 oz) from the system's R-12 capacity.

8. Charge the system with the proper amount of R-134a refrigerant .

9. Start the engine and let it idle. Turn the A/C system on and off several times. Listen
for any abnormal noises.

10. Repeat step 9 with the engine running at 1,500 rpm and 3,000 rpm.

11. With the system on, check the cooling performance at the dashboard vents.

12. Check the high and low side pressures and compare them to the R-12 specifications.
They should be slightly higher.

13. Turn off the A/C system and the engine. Disconnect the recovery/recycling station.

Install the caps on the valves.

14. Place the R-134a caution label from the kit over the existing R-12 label. If the R-12
label is no longer there, place the R-134a label on the right damper housing.

PARTS INFORMATION

R-134a retrofit kit A:

1986 - 87 Integra - P/N 38020-SM4-A2AH
1988 - 93 Integra - P/N 38020-SM4-A1AH
