Ok so this is it. The top two photos shows the difference in configuration of the desno (odyssey)on the top and the delphi (accord) on the bottom. The main differences is that the delphi has the power connector on the top and the denso has it on the side about an inch away and the negative lead is moved closer to the top of the alternator giving more slack on the negative lead. So this is how i did the swap. this would also be the directions to replace any alternator on the accord v6. Surprisingly easy. Before getting into it this photo shows the engine covers removed and what you will be starting with. ~First remove the connectors and push them out of the way. Simple flat head screw driver to push down the connector lock and a 10mm socket for the ground wire work best. ~Also removing the bolt for the power steering resevoir helps open up some room (10mm socket) ~Once this is done it is on to the part that took me a while. The fan... You have to remove the fan otherwise once you get the alternator unbolted you will not be able to take it out. Like trying to pull a big ball out of a small square hole... it doesn't work without taking out the fan. TRUST ME i tried for an hour. To take out the fan use the 10mm socket or phillips screw driver. there are two bolts on top and one on the bottom that can just be loosened. also unplug the needed connectors ~Now remove the belt using a 14mm closed end wrench on the tension pulley (longer the wrench the better) Hold it in place and slide the belt off with the other hand. -note pushing toward the cab will remove tension. ~Next remove the alternator by unbolting the top nut (12mm) and the bottom nut (14mm) I would recommend removing the flange that the top of the alternator is bolted to as well. This will allow you to install the new one easier and add a little extra tension. ~Last reverse the steps for installation of the new alternator with a few differences. -note that the harness in the picture below is against the crank case. I pulled on it enough to get it to attach to the odyssey alt. location if you have the time i would recommend splicing i am still a bit worried about the wires getting too hot that close to the crank case but i will watch it, if all is ok i will probably leave it alone (splicing isn't my favorite thing to do) I have had the alternator on for almost 4 months and there is no effect to the wiring. And everything is still running strong. some more pictures of the finished product. also note that i had to remove the alt. harness from the plastic piece that originally held the wire out of the way of the crank case (once again splicing would eliminate having to do this) Someone finally sent me a Private Message (12/12/2010) requesting to know what year of odyssey I got my alternator from, sorry I didn't post this earlier, I got mine from a 2001 (v6 odyssey) From my understanding the 1999-2004 are the same generation however when writing this i thought i remember hearing that they switched alternator design in 2003 so I would recommend staying between a 1999-2002 to be on the safe side until someone confirms otherwise. For the long term I would still recommend this alternator to anyone, it required no changes other than what i show up (very easy to install) and it has more than out performed any other alternator I have put on the car (I went through 3 within 2 years, this one being the 3rd). My little brother now owns the Accord and that is why i don't post much however I do still receive PMs via e-mail so feel free to contact me.
