I'd put an air compressor downstream and pop it out.

How to chg alternator on 2002 ford taurus 24v dohc 3.0


ctionsThings You'll Need
  • Flywheel holding tool
  • New alternator
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench
    • 1Determine which alternator your Ford Taurus will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Taurus's engine. Models made from 1986 to 1991 have a 2.5 L HSC, 3.0 L Vulcan or 3.8 L engine. The 2.5 L engine was dropped for 1992 to 1995 models, and post-1995 models will have a 3.0 L engine.
    • 2Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Release the tension on the accessory drive belt so that you can remove the drive belt from the pulley.
    • 3Take off the mounting bolt on the right side of the alternator with a socket wrench and remove the bracket for the power steering hose. Remove the mounting bolts on top of the alternator, the front passenger wheel and tire assembly and the front fender splash shield. Remove the alternator splash shield with a socket wrench and take off the inspection cover for the torque converter.
    • 4Mount a tool to hold the flywheel so you can remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and crankshaft pulley. Lower the alternator so you can unplug its electrical connections. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and Oxygen sensor connector. Remove the lower alternator mounting bolt and B+ connector nut to remove the alternator.
    • 5Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the above procedure. Use a torque wrench to tighten the B+ connector nut to 71 in. lbs. and the lower alternator bolt to 18 foot pounds. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 74. foot pounds, the upper alternator bolts to 18 foot pounds and the nut for the power steering hose bracket to 13 foot pounds.

How to Change the serpentine belt?


the belt is routed around various pulleys depending and the engine you have. The tensioner pulley is a spring-loaded assembly which keeps the belt tight on the pulleys. On the 3.0 L Duratech engine, it located on the pass. side toward the back- near and lower to the power steering pump and reservoir. It has a pulley about 3 inches diameter with a metric bolt in the center (very tight spaces to work with). A long wrench or socket on ratchet can move the pulley and assembly away from belt, taking tension off belt while you hold it in place. Alternately, the assembly arm itself may have a square 3/8" hole to insert a ratchet drive in order rotate the pulley against spring pressure to relieve tension on belt. Then slip belt off and route it out. Again, VERY TIGHT space.

Power steering presure line how to change


Hello, to replace try this :

1. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a ratchet and socket. Then slide the drive belt off the power steering pulley. Let the tensioner pulley carefully return to the original position without snapping back to prevent damage to internal components.


2. Place a drain pan under the vehicle to catch power steering fluid after you remove the two hoses from the steering pump.


3. Detach the pressure hose from the steering pump by loosening the retaining nut with a flare wrench. Let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

4. Loosen or slide the clamp off the return line at the steering pump (depending on the type of clamp used on your particular Taurus model). Use a ratchet and socket or a pair of slip joint pliers.Then detach the return line from the pump with your hand and let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

5. Unplug the steering pump electrical connector, if your particular model is equipped with it.

6. Remove the power steering pulley from the pump using special tool 211-016 (T69L-10300-B). For more information, see the Resources section below. Make a note of the pulley distance from the steering pump body at the mounting shaft, so that you use the same amount of clearance when you mount the pulley on the new pump.

7. Unfasten the power steering pump mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and lift the pump off the engine compartment.

Thanks

Fan Belt Question.


You can't just "slip it on". It is under a lot of pressure from the spring loaded tensioner. But you don't have to remove anything. You just have to put a socket or long wrench on the tensioner, to rotate it into a looser position. But it is still not trivial to install. It helps to have 2 people. One to hold the wrench and another to slip the belt over the pulleys. There is the crank, waterpump, alternator, AC, power steering pump, and tensioner.

But it probably was not a good idea to remove anything. You should pick up a Haynes manual for $20 or be willing to photocopy pages from the manual at the library, because you should never do or have car work done without a manual. It is your car, so your responsibility to get the information and use it. You can't blame the neighbor for not knowing or not wanting to buy a manual for your car.
