I have a 1998 Rodeo and just replaced the alternator. If I may make a suggestion, pay someone to do this. It took two of us 4 hours to replace. I am not a certified mechanic, but I know a few things about cars. I thought that I would replace it myself and save a little money! Big mistake. It is EXTREMELY hard to get too and there is NO room to work. Once you get it out, you would think that the new one would just slip back in place, not the case. I will take the car in and have it done next time. To answer your question though, yes you need to go at it from under the right side of the engine. you will need to go from the top to loosen some of the bolts. Hope this helped! Good luck!

Ya it took me a half hour to do this by myself. Like jboysgsxr750 said, remove the passenger side wheel and the serpintine belt. The lower alternator bolt is easier to remove from the bottom and the other from the top. Remove the radiator hose bracket so you can move hose around and that also gives you more room to remove top alternator bolt. Its not a bad idea to disconnect radiator hose form the top....makes it easier to pull out alternator. Also, i found it easier to disconnect electrical connectors from under the passenger side wheel well.

Replace the alternator on a 97 isuzu rodeo


from Yahoo answers
The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!

Hope this helps you out!!
