Download the repair manual from the FAQ. You have to loosen the power steering tensioner with a 14 mm wrench and loose the adjuster until you can remove the belt. Then you loosen the bolt at the front of the alternator to remove the belt. To remove the alternator you loosen the 2 bolts on the side. The adjustor for the power steering belt can be accessed through the headlight if you have a really long extensions.

I highly recommend you download the manual.

What you do is on the left side of the alternator on the sidecnext to the headers remove that tensioner bolt with a 10 mm wrench then remove the bolt that come up to the front of the alternator with a 12 mm wrench push the alternator down and take off the belt then on the right side of the alternator behind the power steering pulley there is a 14mm bolt which is the main bolt loosen that until it is blocked by the pulley then take a screw driver and gently hammer the bolt under the pulley until it's free then voilą take out the alternator this is a quick way to do it and I know it works because I've had to do it at least 3 times in autozones parking lot

I don't think the ACCORD alternator is threaded where the alternator bolt goes through like the prelude alternator. If this is the case, then you will have to use a longer alternator bolt and nut to secure the alternator.

If you are talking about the adjusting bolt, the best way is to of course have the alternator through bolt loose on top. Then have the adjusting nut almost at the end of the threads on the adjusting bolt and pull the alternator from bottom as far forward as you can. This makes the alternator bolt far more accessible to thread through the adjusting bolt and alternator.
