The bolt goes in from the back, bottom of the alternator, and the nut is on the front, bottom of the alt. It's a long bolt, u will probably have to get a wrench on both ends, I seem to remember the last time I had mine out, the nut came off ok, then I had to turn the long bolt while pulling back slightly to get it to come out. Let me know it u need more info. countrycurt0

    Checked my manual, this may help. U need to loosen the alt. adjusting bolt before u remove the nut from the lower mounting bolt, remove belt, now REMOVE adjusting bolt, the loser mounting bolt along w/ the mounting bolt 'stay'. Now support the alt. and remove the upper through bolt now, the alt will come out. Again, let me know it u need more info. countrycurt0

Im having trouble getting the alternator out, any suggestions?


Disconnect battery first then you must access alt from bottom of car as it sits on bottom of motor, left side if facing from front. So get car on lift remove FL wheel remove the 2 bolts one on top and one on bottom slide bolts out pull down alt disconnect plug and cable nut. Getting alt out royal pain but flip and turn move hose till it will come out very tight fit but will come out without taking any hoses off replace with new. recommend putting it on a lift.

How to fit a alternator belt on a 1.8 diesal escort van 51plate


This should be the same as a car, jack the front of the car up put stands under, remove front wheels, remove bottom cover (about 7 screws), Remove powersteering pump pully 3 bolts, remove and refit new belt and P/S pully, you might get away with not having to adjust alt but if you have to youll need a 13mm spanner to undo the locking bolt then pull the alt tight (its really tight u might need a bar), once all done replace in reverse order.

How do i change the alternater myself


A good Bible to pick at any auto parts store call" Haynes auto repair", great book and investment if you plan to continue to do any repair work on your own in the near future plus it come with a picture. you will need to jack car up and remove a splash shield to remove the lower bolt, then remove Alt. 2.0L engines (coupe) need the coolant reservoir removed for wiggle room. 2.0L wagons and sedans, you need to free the Oxygen Sensor wiring harness from it's retainer on mounting bracket and unbolt power steering and A/C hose brackets from top of Alt. bracket, then remove mounting bolts. 1: Disconnect negative terminal on battery-this is a rule or you'll suffer a blown diode in the alt. when you plug one of the wires back in. 2: Put a 3/8" breaker bar or ratchet into the square hole on the tension-er and pull to front of car to loosen and remove belt or shove out of way then ease it back. 3: Remove the a/c hose bracket from the top of Alt. bracket. Tip: You may need to also unbolt the a/c hoses from the strut tower to wiggle them around for more room. 4: disconnect the electrical wires from the Alt. Two use those stupid little snap connectors, use a small screw diver and carefully ease them off. The main one uses a small nut, that's another reason to disconnect the battery since that's a positive connection! 5: (Very Important) Unbolt the Power Steering reservoir and try to shove it aside a few inches. 6: Loosen, then remove the top and bottom mounting bolts. The bottom fastener has a sliding nut built into the Alt. bracket. You may want something handy to pry the Alt. up and out. 7: If your lucky then you can grab the A/C hoses with your right hand and ease them aside as you use your left hand on the pulley to lift the Alt. If not, your gonna be swearing a lot 8: Now you can re-install everything in reverse order or any order you want, just connect the battery terminal last.

I need to replace my alternator


You need to first take off youre serptine belt. Inspect that and generally its a good idea to replace. Next there is a electrical connection on the alternator. DISCONNECT the battery FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then disconnect the connection on the alternator, there are a couple of bolts that attach the alternator to the engine. and then simply bolt on the new one, re-attach the electrical connection and then re-install the (new) belt.
