Car jack

I recently bought my newest prelude and its missing the car jack and lug wrench. It's also missing the bracket for the spare tire but if i cant find one i'll probably make my own. can anyone tell me where i can get one, or if the jack/wrench was shared by other honda models?

I'm really excited about fixing up my new baby.

Re: Car jack

Majestic Honda. If you find a parts number, you can ebay the jack for less... They're like 20-25$ used at part yards. You have many options.

Welcome and Pics

Maybe. An increasing number of Prelude parts -- including some I though would be common to other models, like battery cables -- are marked as "national backorder", which is Honda's way of saying, "we're not producing these parts any more."

For the tool kit, though, just about any Honda should be able to provide it, so you may have better luck.

Ohhh man. That's a shame jacks are "national backorder", seeing the average consumer don't know how to operate one and break them a lot. Don't think type T knows either

Flat level solid ground. Anything else will warp them/break them. Much more reliable than the oil filled jacks.

And that jack you posted Type -T suck cause they leak through the seals after a year of use, sooner if you lift a suv with one. Personal experience. And worthless after the car is on lowered springs.

Edit: there are ones that do not cut the corners and work, I have the jack kit from forever ago... 2001, cost 120.00$ that came with a creeper, and two stands. Good for lifting, get the stand under, release. That ebay one will get you hurt.

Re: Car jack

I feel confident with the scissor type jack while it raises the car vs something with oil seals. But jack stands and/or other back up are a must before I'll crawl under the car.

Now to the jack type t showed...


^^ pz sticker required....
Fits in 5% tighter spots, lifts 2.6% higher and is 7% stronger with vs without it.

Re: Car jack

Yes, and they should be pretty much the same across Hondas. IIRC, the Prelude's jack is about the same size as the one in our old Civic and in the Element. Lug nuts are all 19mm, so any wrench should fit, although I wouldn't worry about that -- I keep an extendable Gorilla wrench in the back.

I have been using my jack for years (atleast 3) for now without any problems (and I bought the cheapest jack what I could find). Personal experience.

of course that I need inch thick (wood) board under my tire that I can lift my car up (because of lower suspension), but thats not big deal
