2002 Freelander, all electrical died, jumping battery didn't work

2002 Freelander, while in intersection, wipers working then started to slow, electrical windows slow to go up, then car died and all electrical didn't work, emergency flashers very slow, tried to get car to start by jumping battery, couldn't get car to start. Tow truck operator said it's alternator. Thoughts?

    I was driving Freelander home on a snowy winter day. I could tell the power was going (wipers slowing, gages on the dash all dimmed and stopped then the car died).

    I charged the battery overnight...stilll wouldn't start, but at this point it did with a jump.

    Is there a diagram of how I can get to my alternator to change it?

Most likely right.... if the alternator quits you can often run off the battery but once you start accessories like wipers . heater etc it will not last long

Kia rio 02 died while driving down highway

The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.

How do you change the alternator on a 2002 Freelander 2.5L

On the 2002 Freelander it is in deed tricky. Basically you will need to support the front of the engine as you will be removing the front engine mount in the process of removing the lower mounting bolt from the alternator. You will also need to work the belt off the pulley without damaging it as well. The whole job takes about an hour. Be certian that you have disconnected the battery prior to starting your job.
