Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
How difficult is it to replace the alt in a 96 Grand Cherokee, 4liter. I am assuming maybe 3 bolts and the electrical connection. Can I physicaly remove the old and insert the new without doing something like removing the tranny? I will replace the belt at the same time. Any major headaches there?
1.Make sure the battery is disconnected while working there. @. Make sure that all electrical terminals are clean (on alt & battery) before putting back together. 3. use anti-seize compound or some good lithium grease on fasteners on re-assembly. It helps to keep them from freezing into aluminium and makes removal easier in the future. You may have to remove some other stuff to get the alt out, but it shouldn't bee too difficult. Make sure you either have a belt routing diagram, or make your own before you take it apart.
