Batter wont charge, jeep idles for about a min then dies. Need to replace alternator, but dont know how

I have the same Jeep model 5.2L V8, to replace the alternator, check the next procedure...

Once the determination is made that the alternator is at fault, off vehicle testing can be used to determine the defective component inside the alternator.
See Figures 1 through 11
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt.
  3. If necessary, remove any splash shielding for easier access to the alternator.

Fig. 1: For easiest access to the alternator assembly, first remove the splash shield mounting fasteners ...


Fig. 2: ... then swing it out of the way for access to the alternator assembly


Fig. 3: View of the alternator electrical connections-(A) battery positive, (B) field terminals, (C) wire harness hold down, (D) ground terminal

  1. Tag and disengage the alternator wiring.
It may be necessary to remove the alternator and mounting bracket from the vehicle as an assembly.
  1. If equipped, remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate.


Fig. 4: Remove the six nuts and bolts that secure the front mounting plate to the alternator assembly


Fig. 5: Remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate from below the vehicle

  1. Unfasten the alternator mounting and pivot bolts and remove the alternator.
  2. If installing the original alternator assembly, push out the pivot bushing as illustrated.

Fig. 6: After removing the alternator assembly front mounting plate, remove the front engine-to-alternator bracket mounting stud


Fig. 7: Remove the two alternator bracket-to-engine mounting bolts


Fig. 8: Remove the alternator and mounting bracket assembly from the vehicle

To install:

  1. Mount the alternator to the brackets with the nuts and bolts. Tighten the two mounting bolts and nuts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  2. If the alternator and mounting bracket were removed as an assembly, install the assembly into the vehicle.
  3. If removed, install the front mounting plate.
  4. Engage the alternator electrical connections.
  5. If removed, install the splash shield.
  6. stall the drive belt and attach the negative battery cable.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

How to replace alternator on 1999 ford taurus 6 cyl.

If this is for the 3.0L Vulcan engine, it's really easy. There are two mounting bolts and a stud nut. The mounting bolts go through the left side of the mounting bracket and through the alternator (it's at the top of the serpentine assembly). You'll have to take the stud not off from the lower intake manifold to remove the second mounting bracket. Make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal first so that you don't fry anything. You'll also have to remove the nut that attaches the ground to the alternator and remove the wiring harness. The nut is enclosed in a black rubber pocket that protects the connection from moisture. After you've done all this, just pull it up and off the assembly. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Is it hard to change an alternator on a ford focus zetec 2000

Hello, This job is alot harder on your car than most that's for sure. It really depends on your mechanical ability and time vs the amount your willing to pay someone else. This job is easy if your not afraid to loosen the passenger motor mount and slid the engine forward about an inch with a pry bar. (Which sounds alot harder than it is) But the Hanes manual lists alot of things to do to get around the motor mount.

Per Haynes Manual.
Place Coolant Expansion Tank to one side.
Lift out Power Steering Reservoir and put to one side.
Remove DriveBelt.
Unscrew Wiring Loom bolt and move wiring to one side.
Remove Ground Cable from Strut Tower.
Bent the ground bracket down as much as possible.
Move Canister Purge Valve to one side.
Remove Plastic Cover from Alternator.
Unscrew and the alternator mounting bolt nearest the engine first.
Unscrew the other retaining bolt until it has fully disengaged from the bracket (not possible to remove bolt from alternator at this stage).
Lift the alternator out, Pulley side facing upwards.
Take care not to damage or you might screw your surrounding components!

I would say if you dont work on cars or have mechanical ability you should prob take it to a profesional. I hope my answer helped more than it scared a great weekend and please rate my answer if you felt it was helpful
