1997 Isuzu Trooper alternator replacement

I was given advice to remove the right front wheel on my 1997 Isuzu Trooper to access the alternator to remove the old one. I have removed the two bolts which seem to be holding it but I can't get it loose. The new replacement has only two holes. I was told maybe I had missed a bolt but I cannot see any additional bolts. If there are more bolts where are they located,and how do I get to them? Thanks.

    I was told to replace my alternator. I am experiencing very unusual activity. I will hear an audible click near the fuse box area inside the vehicle. Then the voltage meter will max at 16, the ABS light comes on, sometimes the 4WD light comes on and the car stops affects the transmission?? Then it will click and go back to normal. This can happen back and forth, randomly, for no apparent reason. Car runs and starts fine though. Could this be from an alternator issue? Thanks. David

Hey Herb you are correct there are only two bolt's that hold it on. Shocked that no one has told you that you need to pry it out with a screw driver. The top bolt act's as a clamp when tightened, so you must pry it loose.

You'll have to rock the alternator back and forth to get the bushing that the lower bolt goes through to slide back enough for the alternator to slide out.

Have a 1997 Isuzu Trooper. The battery will not charge, has new alternator on it. Any ideas??

Check the large cable on the alternator to make sure it has 12 volts on it with the engine not running,if it does not,then this is the problem,running a new one to the positive side of the battery to this terminal on the alternator will solve the problem.

How to replace starter on 1986 isuzu trooper II?

remove the front right wheel and pull off the rubber cover to expose the lower side of the engine compartment. You will be able to see the starter under the manifold. Might also need to climb under to get access to the two nuts and bolts. Not too easy but can be done by yourself. Be sure to disconnect the battery first!! good luck

Alternator removal on 1997 Isuzu Trooper

My son just got the alternator off of my Trooper (1997) and he said removing the wheel is not necessary. He took off 2 bolts from the top and several from the bottom that were very difficult to remove but then the alternator came off pretty easy. He says if it loose then it should come off pretty easy, if it is not loose, you must be missing a bolt somewhere. He also says is you are in our area, call him and he will take it off for $100 =)

Isuzu alternator

You probably have this sorted by now as this post is a couple of weeks old but just in case you haven't, here goes.
Remove the front belt/s. Remove radiator cowl. Access the alternator bolts by removing right front wheel. Once diconnected, push the alt up past the radiator and into the hands of your assistant.
This method is for the 3.1td engine. If you have a V6 I have been told that the alt will come out through the wheel arch which will avoid removing the belts and cowl.
Also, don't forget to disconnect your battery/s.
Good luck.
