i had to do this to my wifes 99 cougar. if you're not a lil car savvy, then your best bet is take it to a mechanic. I found the instructions, on autozones website. 1st you gotta take off front passenger tire, remove the whole assembly including the half shaft. (this car is really a pain to work on) Thats not even all of it, thats just to see the alternator from underneath. I got everything except that damn last bolt holding the alternator in, so i had to put it back together, get it towed to a friends shop and let him finish it for me. So far I hate working on this car, if its not something above the motor, then its a pain cuz they decided to put that big *** 2.5 motor in the small *** car!! But if you really want to do it yourself, I recommend autozone, they have detailed info on how to do it, plus some tools, you need to rent if you don't have em already!! Good luck, you'll definately need it!!

SOURCE: removing alternator bolts on mercury cougar

There are 3 bolts. You'll need a LOT of socket extensions and a car hoist!
and a lot of time and patients.

But an even better idea is to just check the wire connections make sure they are well connected and no gaps on the female connectors if you suspect a bad alt.

first check the red wire going to the wire clip at top of tank if it shows as hot then either the float is sticking or the sending unit is bad on the pump. if its bad you half to replace the fuel pump or if hot line is not hot then check the fuse box under the hood for blown fuse.

How to change fuel pump on mercury cougar 99 2.5L V6

The Cougar uses the same platform as the Contour so it should be like it is on my Contour. Remove the rear seat bottom and you'll see a cover in the floor. Remove that cover and you'll be able to see the top of the fuel tank. You'll need to remove the lines coming out of the top and use a punch with a hammer to rotate that locking ring. Once you remove the ring you can pull the pump module out of the tank. Be careful not to bend the fuel level float. You'll be able to see how to get to the pump once the module is out. Just take the cover off and put the new pump in the module and re-install.

How do you remove fuel pump thru access hole under back seat in 99 cougar

just finished one on my 99 cougar... remove the back seat, take out the rubber ring that has the fuel pump wires running through it. on the end of the wires is a clip that has to be removed before you can unplug it... it is metal... you just pull straight out to the side and it will come out... then remove the plug from top of fuel pump.... then feel directly to the right is a nother plug that has to be unplugged.... then with a long screwdriver (flat head) and a hammer knock the keeper ring clock wise to get it out from under the tabs.... slide the rings down the fuel lines... NOTE: THESE LINES ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED..... Pick fuel pump housing up out of tank and remove the pump, and replace with new one.... you may have to drop the fuel tank a little to pick it up out of tank... that's easy too... crawl up under it make sure it is on jack stands and the emergency brake pulled, and in park.. chalk the front wheels just too make sure it doesn't move.. then on the front of the tank there is two bolts one on each side.. remove them and tank will drop down enough to do job.... hope this helps
