    • Pull the air intake hose off of the engine air intake unit.

    • Pull the air intake hose and valve cover breather hose away from each other until they detach.

    • Bend the air intake tube so that there is an easily accessible path to below the engine air intake and the back of the engine.

      • If the tube cannot flex far enough to be out of the way, it may help to detach the other end of the tube from the air box and completely remove it.

    • Look behind the engine, almost directly under the engine air intake unit, to locate the vehicle speed sensor.

    • Locate the sensor's 12 mm hex bolt. The bolt is slightly further back and towards the driver's side of the car, relative to the vehicle speed sensor connector.

    • Guide a 12 mm socket with two 10" extensions down onto the bolt.

      • You will need to carefully work the socket and extensions between wires and hoses, being careful not to put too much tension on them.

    • Turn the bolt counter-clockwise until it completely un-threads.

    • Remove the bolt from the engine bay.

    • Pull the vehicle speed sensor out of it's hole.

      • Be careful to not bump too many parts while removing the sensor, as you may knock debris into the transmission which can cause premature wear or failure.

      • To avoid the risk of damaging the wiring harness, do not pull the sensor by its wires.

    • Disconnect the sensor from the wiring harness by pressing the grey tab on top of the harness connector and pulling the connector and sensor away from each other.

    • Remove the sensor from the engine bay.

    • When installing the new vehicle speed sensor, be careful not to knock debris into the transmission, as the area around its hole is likely very dirty.

Hey I raplace the speed sensor but my speed gage it still doesn't work, any other Ideas what else can it be?

Christopher Reyes - Replica

Try getting a manual (Haynes?) and check the wiring as suggested. Maybe try a different gauge cluster?

Detach the sensor cable before pulling the sensor out. I used 2 shorter extensions and went at it from the side. Clean around the sensor before you take it out.

hello, pls i have a Honda accord 1999 manual transmission, i always notice that whenever i put on my a/c while the car is moving, immediately the car speed will reduce, pls advice me on what to do, or what do i do tell the mechanic to change

The a/c compressor runs on a belt that runs from the engine so when you turn the a/c it consumes some engine power that’s why you notice a power decrease

I have a sort-of related question: this air intake hose - does it have another opening underneath? The one in my 1998 Honda Accord EX 4-cylinder needs to be replaced, but the only ones we can find have extra open ports. Thanks for any info and advice!

I had the same problem. I just got the part, and plugged the extra hole at the bottom. Here’s how: I got a can of mousse or hairspray (that was all used up) that fit in the hole and cut the top off, so that the can was just long enough to plug the hole, and inserted the can so that the outside, bottom of the can went into the extra hole. Then I put a hose clamp around it to ensure a tight seal, and also put some electrical tape around it, too. I suppose another option would be to get the part from a Honda dealer, but it would cost a lot more.
