Unscrew about a 1/4 of a turn or so until it stops. This unlocks the plug. Then pull straight out.

Removing altenator on 2004 kia sedona 3.5


These are instructions that I found online. From reading them I am glad I have not yet had to replace the alternator on "MY" Sedona. Hope this helps as the KIA manual does not supply alternator R & R instructions. Good luck.
As for #5 I removed the front wheel and plastic panel when I had to replace "just" the serpentine belts and idler pulley.
1. Remove the terminal connections on the battery. Allow 30 minutes to pass for the airbags to automatically disable.
2. Remove the air filter intake. The air filter intake is the large plastic box above the radiator that is connected to the air filter housing. With the air filter intake removed, you can now remove the support beam above the radiator itself. You will have to use a Phillips screwdriver to remove a total of 10 screws from the support beam.
3. Place the large pan underneath the vehicle right under the radiator. Unplug the two radiator hoses that are connected to the radiator.
4. Remove the pipe that the radiator hoses were connected to. Remove both fans that are attached to the radiator by unscrewing the four screws holding each fan in place. This will allow access to the alternator itself.
5. Remove the serpentine belt by loosening the manual adjustment pulley held in place by two nuts. Use the socket wrench to remove the nuts and then remove the serpentine belt. Remove the support bar that connects the engine block to the alternator. Remove the 2 screws holding the support bar in place to remove it.
6. Remove the three bolts on the left side of the alternator. Disconnect the wire harness to the alternator by squeezing the tabs and pulling it out. Disconnect the hot connector by pulling it out. Pull the alternator out of the vehicle. Place the new alternator into the vehicle and reconnect the hot connector and wire harness to the alternator.
7. Reattach the support bar by reinstalling the two screws. Reattach the serpentine belt into the vehicle and tighten the manual adjustment pulley. Reattach the two nuts holding it into place.
8. Reattach the fans attached to the radiator. Make sure there are four screws for each fan to secure it into place. Reattach the pipe that the radiator hoses were connected to and reconnect the two hoses that were connected to the radiator.
9. Use all ten screws to reattach the black support beam above the radiator. Place the air filter intake back into the vehicle. Reconnect the terminal connections to the battery and close the hood.

How do you change headlamp/bulb


Hello there, hope these guidelines are of help.
  • Open the hood and and take out the eight fastener plugs that connect the radiator cover to the front of the vehicle. Grasp the plugs from underneath, and squeeze them as you push them up and out of the hole. You do not need to remove the cover, but you need to be able to pull it away from the vehicle slightly to be able to remove the headlight.
  • Grasp the radiator cover close to the lens of the headlight you need to replace, and gently pull it up and toward you to access the headlight screws.
  • Remove the three headlight screws using a socket wrench. There are two screws directly below the lens, and one screw on the side of the lens closest to the outer edge of the vehicle.
  • Pull the edge of the radiator cover away from the vehicle, and lift the headlight assembly up and out of its frame.
  • Press the clip on the electrical connector to release it, and pull the connector out of the bulb retainer. Turn the bulb retainer counterclockwise 1/4 turn and pull it out of the assembly.
  • Pull the bulb out of the socket and insert the new bulb. Do not touch the bulb's glass with your fingers. Use a clean, lint-free cloth to handle the bulb if necessary.
  • Insert the bulb and retainer into the assembly, and turn it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it. Plug the electrical connector into the bulb retainer.
  • Place the headlight back into its frame and replace the screws. Put the radiator cover back into place and insert the eight fastener plugs.
Best regards...

Need to replace 97 toyota camray radiator how do i go about it


Drain the coolant & recycle. Anti-freeze is toxic so please clean up any spills. Remove the top covers & trim to gain access to the fan & radiator. Disconnect the fan/sensor plug-ins and any other wiring to prepare the electric fan assembly for removal. You could have a line or two secured to a part of the fan assembly that will need to be removed. You've got a few screws holding in the fan assembly & then it pulls up & out. You'll need to remove the hoses & lines if auto trans, need to be raised or plugged to keep them from draining. fluid will drain out of the radiator once lines are removed so you'll need to catch that small amount of fluid in a pan or onto a shop towel. Now the radiator should be exposed with two mounts, one on the top left & one on the top right that have a few bolts to remove, lift up the mounts and the radiator will pull up & out. It fits into rubber grommets at the base, you'll need to line those up when reinstalling. I think that's it. Good Luck

Replace a radiator


Drain the radiator there is a plastic screw plug at the bottom of the radiator, after that disconect the upper and the lowwer hoseby loosening clamps then take a large pair of channel lock pliers to rotate gently the hose where the calmp was located to crack free the hose bond to the radiator pipe after sliding off the hoses remove both smaller hose going to the radiator they use either screw on clamps or the type you squeeze with pliers to spread and remove, once emoved pull off the hoses, after that remove the two clamps located on the top of the radiator, after that unplug the wire coming off the radiator fan, you should now be able to slide the radiator up and out of the car if not remove any other hoses there is a vent hose near the radiator cap remove it. The fan must be unbolted from the radiator and bolted onto the new one there is usaully 4 bolts if neccessary remove and reuse the bolt clips that the bolts screw into from the old radiator to bolt the fan on to the new radiator after bolting the fan on to the new radiator slide the radiator back down into the rubber support bushings that are at the bottom where the radiator sits look for the two holes that the pins at the bottom of radiator fit into the radiator must fit into these holes to ensure proper installation reconnect all hoses and wires, refill radiator with 50% water 50% antifreeze mix and check for leaks after full and running for ten minutes.
