Default 92 Prelude Alternator Belt

Hello,
I am wanting to replace the alternator belt on a 1992 Honda prelude.
The old one broke off.
Well, I need a procedure to do it, please.
I wonder if you need to remove the power steering belt to install the alt.
belt ?
Does anyone have a procedure for me to follow?
thanks for considerations,
bill

Bill-- it doesn't sound like you've got much in the way of mechanical
comprehension if you can't tell just by looking at it. If the PS belt is in
front, you do, if it's behind-- you don't.

Are you really sure you want to tackle this yourself?? It's a cheap repair
and most any shop can do it for you.

thanks for the reply.
I am sure I could do it if I had a procedure to follow...but I thank you for
the response.
Since it is in front, as you say, it will have to come off.
Sometimes with different bolts to loosen from mfg to mfg it helps to have
diagrams to follow.
thanks again for giving me an answer.

If the Accord-based '92 Prelude is the same as the '91 Accord and
Accord-based Legend, the alternator is loosened and tightened in a
slightly different way from Civic-based cars.

See here for a diagram.

nothing to be afraid of! the decimal system works great and everything
else is better designed/made.

Well it works better than the elevenimal system they use in deepest darkest
Borneo.

You will be glad to know I have chopped off all my fingers and
toes...except for both index fingers. I am grimly and painfully binary now.

All I am now capable of is ones and zeroes. This also makes it very
difficult to give a cop the finger while driving by, as I once did in my
early '20s. I didn't get a ticket for that one, although I did have to sit
through a rather lengthy and boring roadside lecture after he caught up to
me and pulled me over.

But I can't seem to find a 1 cm drive for my metric sockets!
