Re: Replacing Alternator on 2001 Ford Escape, V6 Engine
There should be 2 bolts that hold it in place maybe 3 but you need to loosen the top one and loosen the bottom one to allow slack in the belt.you take the old belt off and put the hew one on and then u need a prybar to put pressure against the new alternator to take the slack out of the belt and tighten the bolts up at the same time. on the back of the alternator you will find 2 screws that have to be taken loose and put back the same way on the new alternator. make sure u take the pos battery cable loose from the battery before u begin

(http://www.autozone.com/addVehicleId,2724101/initialAction,repairGuide/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152801e8dd4) the drive shaft has to be removed, this is a 3-4 hour job to change alternator on the ford escape. if you feel you can do it yourself, then go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your make and model of your car. these books are based on a complete teardown of vehicle the cost is about 25.00. but it shows you how to repair anything on your car. car. good-day ! or you can check out above link !
There is a wegde sleave on the bracket that helps hold the altenator. one of the bolts go thru it. spray some oil on it. you can take a hammer and bar and tap on the backside of the altenator to loosen it up or take a pry bar and pry it out. when prying be careful not to smash/ break anything that might be in the way.
this is a 2001 ford escape,you didnt list the engine but since your looking for # 5 sparkplug its got to be a v6 engine 3.0, heres a diagram to show you where all the cylinders are,sparkplugs go with cylinders, so your looking for plug 5 thats in cylinder 5,hope this helps.
