Question about 2000 Jeep Cherokee
Jeep keeps dying. Parts store said needs new alternator.
I did this, its a pain. First disconnect your battery. Then loosen the tension pully - there are two long screws on the top of your engine - they go thru something, i cant remember what, then use a screw driver to pry it back and pull the belt off your alternator. As for the alternator itself - you have to climb underneath the car to get it out, and there's not much room for hands - if i remember correctly there are 2 or 3 bolts on it. once your drop it down there is a strange wire clip you need to unplug. Call around for alternator prices, i was quoted from 169 to 305. If you got the dough take it in - of the 4 cars ive put alternators in this one was by far the worst.
