Hi,

its going to have to be welded back but you might be able to use it for emercencies by using a pair of channellocks as a temporary vise and/or maybe a BLACK rubber bungee cords(not the multicolred kind) untill you get it fixed. my brothers trans am has had a bungee cord on the alternator since he bought it and it seems to hold, he just replaces the bungee cord once in a while. you have to put alot of tension on the bungee cord, be careful and wear safety goggles when attatching it.

good luck

ON A 2003 ZETEC SE IS THE THERMOSTAT BEHIND ALTERNATER IF SO IS IT EASY TO REMOVE ALTERNATER


I just replaced the T-stat on my 2003 Focus ZX3 last weekend. I'm a novice; it was easy. You shouldn't have to remove anything except the T-stat housing. It's located on the right side of the block, across from the battery. You need a 10 mm wrench to remove the three bolts holding the housing onto the block. Removing the four hoses was the most difficult part. When they're off, the housing unit slides under and out. The T-stat and O-ring cost $20.

2005 Maxima, brake and battery warning lights are on. Serpentine belt looks good and the brake fluid level is ok. What else could it be?


THE ALTERNATER IS DEFECTIVE.
CHANGE THE ALTERNATER.--REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT BY PUSHING THE TENSIONER PULLEY WITH A CROW BAR OR BIG SCREWDRIVER. BE CAREFULL TO NOTE THE ROUTING OF THE BELT FIRST, THEN REMOVE THE ALTERNATER BOLTS. INSTALLATION IS THE REVERSE OF THE REMOVAL.

Were is the thermastat on a 1996 maxima


Follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. There will be a housing with two or three bolts holding it down. Remove the radiator hose from the housing, remove the bolts and lift the housing off. The thermostat will be sitting under the housing.

How do you take out an old alternator and install a new alternator in a 97 honda civic


From the top of the car remove the slide and anchor bolt from the alternater bracket. remove your 3 or 4 pin plug and diconnect the pos power line beside the 3 or 4 pin plug ( on the back of the alternater). now raise the car and from below remove the lower bolt that allows the alternater to swing back and forth. the bolt fits through the housing of the alternater. remove the belt. now the alternater is free. this lower bolt that was just removed attaches to a bracket bolted to the block. remove this bracket and the alternater will slide out of the bottom of the car. complete the above steps in reverse to install new part.

The battery in my 1996 maxima will not stay charged. we replaced the alternater and the cables that connect. what else could be wrong with it?


If you have a new altenator and your battery is still dying, then you may have a short somewhere in the wiring. Do you have an aftermarket cd player? How long between uses that the battery dies? Do you have clocks that stay on all the time or anything like that?
You either have a shorted wire or a device that demands constant power.

Bottom part of the water pump on '95 Nissan Maxima broke.


You are going to need someone that is Really good Welding Aluminum as all the Import Blocks are Aluminum. Some good Mechanics can Weld this Back on Well enough to Use the Hole again for the Bolt. I would make some Calls and see if you cannot Find one. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Block and mounts


there are at least 2 bolts that hold mount to block maybe 3 but whatever, you need them all. if you got one broke off in the block you got to get it out, drill hole down center and use an easyout to get it out, and plenty of penatrant. now there is only one bolt and nut that holds mount to the frame , if thats broke, all you need is a new motor mount.
