Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
I have the alternator out sitting on my work bench but am not sure how to get to the brushes for replacement
Its kinda complicated and usually not something you should do unless experienced. first take out the four thru-bolts, and seperate the drive end frame and rotor assembly from the stator assembly by prying apart with a screwdriver at the stator slot. the fit between stator and frame is not tight,and the two can be separated easily. note that the seperation is to be made between the stator frame and drive end frame.after disasembly, place a piece of tape over the slip ring end frame bearing to prevent entry of dirt. to hold stator securely in the end frame, insert two thru-bolts through clearance holes of end frame with the heads resting against the shoulder of the stator frame. fasten stator holders onto the threaded ends of thru-bolts and hand tighten. when slip ring end frame assembly is separated from the rotor and drive end frame assembly, the brushes will fall down onto the shaft and come in contact with the lubricant. remove the brush holder assembly from the end frame by detaching the two brush holder assembly screws. also to get the correct angle, after you install the new brushes, wrap a piece of emory cloth or course grit sand paper around slip rings where the brushes contact and manually turn shaft. if you have any more questions let me know and i'll be glad to help you.
