  • replace-alternator-ford-mercury-800x800.jpgThe alternator in a Ford or Mercury is usually found on the left side of the engine bay.
    The alternator inside the engine bay of any Ford or Mercury vehicle serves essentially the same purpose as the generator did in older cars; it is the electrical power plant for your automobile, turning the mechanical energy of your engine into electrical energy you can use to run your headlights, taillights, radio, etc. When the alternator no longer works properly you will begin to lose the ability to use these electrical systems and the battery will no longer be recharged. Soon, you will not be able to start your car. Have a question? Get an answer from a mechanic now!

      • 4 Unbolt the three bolts holding the alternator in place, using your socket wrench.
      • 5 Remove the old alternator and replace it with the new alternator. Bolt it into place with the three bolts you removed in the previous step.
      • 6 Push the two wiring harnesses into the new alternator.
      • 7 Turn the tensioner pulley clockwise again, using the socket wrench, then place the belt back over the alternator pulley.

    Can you get to the alternator through the right wheel well?


    On this car some alternators are at the top some are at the bottom depending on the engine. You can't get at it thru the wheel well but you can get them from the top of the engine compartment ,or from under the car. The main thing to remember is that after you remove the serpentine belt the alternator is removed by turning the pulley in order to get your wrench thru the holes in the pulley, and onto the holding bolts. I have heard to many stories of the plastic pulley's being broken because wrenches were forced in behind the pulley's. The other wires can easily be removed. Remember disconnect your battery.Please let me know if I've helped you ,and don't forget to vote. GOOD LUCK .

    Does my 93' lesabre have a crank sensor???


    Hello: Yes, The crank sensor is behind the crank shaft pulley. Check the wiring where it leaves the sensor and goes up near the alternator. On this year car its possible a small rock may have gotten thrown up from the road nd got into the sensor. You can remove the sensor after you remove the pulley, check to see if the sensor has been scraped by the windows on the back side of the pulley.

    98 dodge caravan alternator how to change


    remove the negative battery cable from the battery. loosen the serpentine belt by using an open-end box wrench and pull the tension pulley back (it's spring loaded, so be careful) by the bolt, remove the belt from the alternator and the tension pulley, then slowly let the tension pulley loose. remove the nuts holding the wires on to the alternator. remove the bolts from the alternator mount, and remove the alternator. put the new one on and hand tighten all of the bolts. then tighten them down with a wrench. put the belt back on the alternator pulley and make sure it's on all of the other pulleys and wheels except the tension. use the wrench again and pull the pulley towards you with your right hand and put the belt under the pulley with your left, and let the pulley go back. reconnect the wires to the alternator and then the battery. **warning** make sure that the battery is fully charged before you start the car with the new alternator, or you'll cause "alternator death" and void your warranty.

    1993 NISSAN MAXIMA HOW CHANGE ALETERNATOR


    Suggest replacing all the belts also. 1st belt, remove coolant reservoir. Loosen the pulley next to the res. then there is a tension bolt behind it. get under the car, the alternator is right there on the passenger side. possible under a small shield. Loosen all the bolts on the alternator, then there is a tentioner on the alternator. Loosen that, remove belt, then take out the rest of the bolts, along with the plug and the ground wire to the alternator. for the P/S belt, loosen the other pulley 14mm, and then the tention bolt is another 12mm.

    There is a rattling noise


    Hi my name is Allen!

    Let's work together and fix this problem!

    Here what I need you to do first!

    Remove the splash gard behind the right front wheel, this is what keeps water and other things front hitting the belts that drive the A/C pulley and alternator pulley, etc.

    Next: grab one pulley at a time and see if it wobbles, if it does then the part behind that pulley will need to be replaced.

    Question: Do you have the 3.0 liter or the 3.3 liter engine. I'm asking because a common problem with the 3.3 liter is the water pump bearings go bad and it will wobble causing a rattle noise.

    Contact me here at FixYa and let me know what you found.

    I am honored to help, and we will work together until we solve your problem!
