    Tim, My brother up in Mo. has the same problem. After discussing it on the phone I talked him through it. The bottom bolt does not have to be removed. It appears so but does not. The alternator rotates off the "U" on the bottom. Just tap the alternator up with a plastic hammer and it will come out. I'm sorry I can't explain better as I have not seen it, but it does in fact come off without removing the bottom bolt. Sorry man.

Once the car is jacked up, the wheel is removed, and the wiring is disconnected loosen the pivot bolt(14mm) on the bottom(it can't be removed with the alternator in place) and remove the top bolt(12mm). some prying will be needed to break it loose and swivel. now, if the car is supported with stands sufficiently and jacked up high enough you should be able to squat somewhat into the wheel well and grab the alternator with both hands. have a pry bar handy as well if you do not already have one and pry on the pivot ear a bit and get the alternator to swivel. once it breaks loose you should be able to swivel it, pry it, swivel it, pry it and so on. lifting it up and to the left and it should work it's way out. it will take a bit of effort at first and the car will rock some, hence the need for added support. I had a bottle jack and 2 jack stands for a more secure base.

DISCLAIMER: it's never completely safe to do anything with the car on a jack or stands so caution must be taken. if you aren't comfortable with this method I suggest a mechanic.

back to the repair.. once you get the alternator up out of the slot bracket then you should be able to turn the alternator for clearance and remove it with a fair amount of ease. I turned mine counter-clockwise for clearance.
all instructions are taken as given the battery negative cable has been disconnected, the belt has been removed from the pulley and you are at the point to work directly with the alternator.

    How can I change the fuel filter in my Hyundai Santa Fe 2004?


    You simply locate where it's installed. Loosen and remove fuel hose clamps first. Plug any fuel hose ends with bolts of appropriate sizes. Remove the bolts and nuts holding the filter to the engine.
    Replace filter with new one, and bolt to the frame. Connect back the hoses. Hint: its good practice to disconnect the negative post of the battery before starting this job.

    Bottom Alternator bolt can't be completly removed from my 2006 SantaFe. Bolt hits a bracket what do I do ?


    Amazing!... Never had that problem on any Hyundai. If the MOUNT is slotted, (bolt sets in a slot) then leave the bolt & nut there (after loosening) and just lift the alternator UP and OUT. You might have to use a screwdriver to assist lifting it up and out.

    I have 97 mitsibishi 3000GT alternator not workin got all the bolts off but how does it come out top or bottom?


    the only way to really remove it is to take it out from the bottom, but get ready for a project. The only way to take it out of the bottom is to take the drive axle out, luckily you do not have to take it out of the transmission though. Good luck

    Can not remove the alternator on my 2001 Santa Fe The main pivot bolt at bottom of alternator seems to be long and can't be pushed back through the hole in alternator base enough to allow the alternator to...


    The mounting bracket where that long bolt goes through is slotted. By loosing the the nut on it slightly, then ply the alternator up out of the mount( nut and bolt still attached to the alternator ).

    Alternator bolts


    The mounting bracket that the bolt goes through is slotted. It will be a little tight but if you can pry the alternator upwards it will disengage the slot and come off. The bolt does not have to come out.

    I had the same problem with a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving to work as I pressed on the gas the brake and battery light would come on. When I applied the brake, the lights would go off. When I got to work I turned the car off and then tried to start it, nothing. The car made a funny sound while running and I could smell somethig smoking. I replaced the alternator and all is good again. When removing the alternator the bottom lifts off the mounting bracket, you cannot drive the bottom bolt back through the mount as I tried to. Simply remove the nut on the bottom bolt and remove the top bolt, then lift the alternator out.
