Here is a picture showing the location of the nine bolts securing the bracket (this engine is out of the car). It is possible to remove the bracket with the alternator in situ, if you have air tools and just about every extension and off-set available. Otherwise, removal of the alternator is usually necessary.

Nope, it has two bolts one towards the front and one at the back underneath. Be careful of the one in the back as the nut is tricky to get on. You don't need to remove the bracket.

Diagram of installation process alternator 1998 Volvo S70


I don't have a diagram. Here are the steps.
1) disconnect negative battery wire..
2) remove serpentine belt
3) remove upper heater hose and thermostat housing; leave thermostat in place
4) remove plate from in front of the power steering pump, the lower bolt is one of three of the alternator bolts.
5) remove all 5 bolts from the PS pump bracket - 2 are by the thermostat housing. Remove the bracket.
6) move the PS pump off to the side out of your way.
7) Remove the long bolt from the alternator you can now see. There is one more alternator bolt at the top which will allow you to remove the idler pulley bracket with the serpentine tensioner. This idler bracket and the tensioner bracket are sizeable, so you have to understand the volume of stuff you are removing.
8) Unhook the alternator wire and with some patience, if you have any left, you can squeeze the alternator out.
This procedure assumes you have the ability to do the serpentine belt removal and refitting, and you will need 12mm sockets/wrenches to do the rest. The t-stat housing uses the torx head screws, so you need that as well.

How to install 03 ford focus alternator?


Removing the Alternator
Disconnect battery ground cable
Remove the ground wire (black) from the alternator
Disconnect the positive wire (red wire held on by a retaining nut) from the back of the alternator
Now disconnect the wire harness from the alternator
Remove the drive belt
NOTE: Some models use a belt tensioner that applies tension to the drive belt.
The best tool to use for this job is the serpentine belt too.
If you can borrow one from a neighbour you can get one at PartSource. (Part# 648451)
On other models you will have to loosen the adjusting bolt on the alternator bracket.
If you're not sure about how to remove the drive belt, visit your local PartSource for free print outs of vehicle specific instructions.
Take off the mounting bolts from the alternator bracket
Now remove the alternator from the engine compartment There. You've removed the alternator. How easy was that?
Installing Your New Alternator
Put the alternator in the engine compartment
Install the mounting bolts that connect the alternator to the alternator bracket
Connect the alternator wiring harness
Now connect the positive wire to the alternator
NOTE: Your new alternator should come with a retaining nut.
Remember to remove the nut before you install the positive wire.
If it doesn't keep the old nut.
Connect the ground wire to the alternator
Now install the drive belt
This is a great time to replace your old worn out belt. When inspecting your old belt look for signs of cracking, oil soaked, hard glazed, splitting or fraying.
All these signs mean it's time you replaced your drive belt.
If your vehicle no longer has the belt routing diagram under the hood, visit your local PartSource for a free print out of the belt routing diagram.
Reconnect the ground battery cable .

I can not figure out how to remove the alternator from a 2000 caravan w/3.3l engine. Alternator is free but I can not contort it out of the engine compartment? Any help please! Thanks Greg


I have recently done this twice to my 2000 Grand Caravan with the 3.3l engine.
1) Remove the top plate which is attached to the alternator mounting bracket held in by 3 bolts.
2) remove the alternator bolts securing the altenator to the mounting bracket.
3) pry the alternator off the bottom mounting bracket
4) turn the alternator around show you can easily see the power wires on back of the alternator and remove the 11/32 nut holding the wire to the alternator. Be careful not to drop the nut behind the engine, because you probably will never find it (experienced).
5) Disconnect the wires from the alternator
6) Remove the black cooragated tube running vertical in front of the alternator and remove the tubes hold clip from the suspension wall.
7) Slide the alrernator pully first up through the opening. You may need to rotate the alternator a little so it fits up through.

How do you replace a alternator


well, if you have a 1990 civic... you jack up the front end.. make sure to use a jack stand to ensure car will not fall while under it... remove the tire... first start by removing the bolts from the top of the alternator.. first 1) is the nut which bolts on a wire.... it should be on the top under a dust cover.. 2)..unclip the wires in the rear of the alternator they should just plug in with a clip style plug...3) remove the bolt in the bracket that adjusts the alternator belt tension.. 4) loosen the bolt in the end of the tensioning bracket so that the bracket swings free.. 5) now move to the side of the car where you removed the tire... and climb under car.. remove the bolt going through the bracket and tap it out...6) push the alternator up into the engine area where it will be secure and out of the way then remove the bracket the alternator was mounted to... after removing the bracket the alternator should have just enough room to be wiggled out...
