Remove negative battery cable.
Remove the electrical plug and wireing. Mark them.
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
Do the reverse procedure to install new alternator.

2000 Ram Van - is the voltage regulator located in the alternator


The voltage is regulated by the pcm (power control module ) on the truck. You cannot make any adjustments, removed or tampered with in any way to the pcm. Only a dodge dealer can check it out to see what the problem is with the pcm. Hope this will help you.
