oh god

Go rent a cherry picker or buy one. Your going to need a socket set and wrenchs.

If I were you go spend $20 + tax for a repair manual from Cdn Tire.

search on honda-tech,, also b4 u raise the car, remove the bearing bolts in the centre of the tire or else u never get them off. Torch comes in handy thats what i used. Ur gonna need engine hoist,, then its simple remove all the electrical connections also any vacum lines and other random stuff,

search and search thats what i did, took me about 2-3 hours and lots of beers.

screw a cherry picker.
just drop the motor down and raise the car over its easier and cleaner and less damage prone.

i would say, if it's something you are going to do often, snag a cherry picker. they arn't TOO horribly expensive.

but, crap tire does rent them i think. it's like $20... dont try to cheapen out.....that's usually how big problems occur.

dont forget to disconect the shift linkage and exhaust.. Drop the motor down to the ground and jack the car high enough to pull it from under the car .. I did that today..

certainly not UNDER the jack unless you'd like to have a car fall on you. jacks have wheels for a reason other than to help you move it around.

always add blocks on top of the jack lift pad.

not funny man,, many ppl die from cars crushing them when there beneath them. Always place the tires u take off underneath the car that way if the jack does slipp the tires will hold the car preventing u from getttin crushed.

Some people have taken their engine out by raising one side of the car higher (front corner) and wheel out the engine that way.

If you are not certain about doing this job, don't do it. Safety is number one and make sure you have proper tools and manual to help you along the way.
