1997 to 2001 Honda Prelude Factory Service Manual
Factory Service Manual for the Honda Prelude 5th generation vehicles produced between 1997 and 2001. Covers all aspects of vehicle repair and maintenance, along with rebuild instructions for engine, gearbox, front axle, steering, suspension, brakes, interior components, exterior components, electrical systems and wiring diagrams.
Introduced on November 7, 1996, the fifth generation retained an FF layout with an independent front suspension and 63/37 weight distribution. Most fifth-generation Honda Preludes came with 16-inch (410 mm) aluminium alloy wheels with all-season 205/50 R16 87V tires. Most fifth-generation models featured the 11.1" front brakes like the '96 VTEC model, and most Preludes also received a five-lug hub (not the four-lug wheel hub of older models). The Prelude was only available in three models for Canada and two models for the US (the Base and Type SH); Canada's market included the SE as well. All models came with 16-inch alloy wheels and 200 PS (200 hp). The 2.0i and JDM Si trims came with 195/60 R15 steel wheel, and the JDM Xi came with 14" steel wheels. Unlike the US market Preludes, JDM Preludes came with rear wind screen wipers, except for the Xi.
