Spade - replacing the belt is not too bad as long as you can get the alternator belt off. When I tried to fix mine, I found that the small pulley wheel was broken and the shaft that it is on was bent. Too much damage to fix....

Yikes! Relatively speaking you lucked out. It could have been a serious accident in other circumstances...

The maintenance light is just an annoyance. Check the owner's manual on how to reset. If I remeber correctly, you hold down the two buttons on the dash (the select and reset) while turning the key and keep holding them after the engine starts until the light goes out

Anyone know how or where to find a DVD navigation hard drive that i can replace my 98 Hard drive Navigation unit with? I called the dealer and they said it would cost me $1,044 to have them put the new unit in i asked to have the hard drive formatted/ flashed and they said they couldnt do it - im trying to find out if anyone has done something similar on their own. i have the alpine touchscreen stock and just need a dvd hard drive - can i use any dvd hard drive or do i need alpine...? any thoughts or words of wisdom

5.) SRS Sensors (Pass. Weight/ Drivers Seat belt)
6.) CD Changer completely dead/ "A Select" on Radio is haywire
7.) Maintence light flashes for a minute when the car is started
8.) Rear Defroster button peeling
9.) Gold emblems/ rear trunk strip are half gray now
8.) Rust bubbles/ defective paint
9.) Headlights peeling (yea I know, Its some UV coating acura says)
10.) Sunroof tint purple
11.) Timing is due
12.) Keyless entry works when it wants to...
13.) Doors unlock randomly. Dont leave your cds in there....
14.) Auto theft thinks my key is a screwdriver 3 days out of the week.
15.) Running premium sucks right now...

Really makes me want to spend another 60k on a new one... lol. Its ten years old so it has to have problems but I think this will be my last Acura because of how they handle things.
