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

I have a 2001 ford escape xlt 4 wheel drive. i had a diagnostic test done & it said it detected a misfire in cylinder 3. i am a do it yourselfer and am going to change all 6 spark plugs but the problem...


I am assuming that you have a V6 Engine because 1, 3 and 5 would be on the other side of 2, 4 and 6. A Striaght in line engine would have them all in a row.

But another way to locate your spark plugs would be to find your Spark plug wires and follow them to the spark plug.

Good Luck

I am looking for tips and tricks for replacing the alternator on a 2001 ford escape with a 4 cylinder engine. I have the bolts out of the alternator and cannot get it out of the mounting bracket.


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.
