Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
I recently had my alternator go, replaced it as well as a belt. I had a time when my pulley was stuck but we got it freed up. Since the alternator and belt were replaced the belt /pulley or something will squeal at random times. Today it was not squealing and everything was fine, i was on highway and it started squealing like crazy. When i got back in car the battery indicator light was on the heat is not working the squeal is gone then the temp guage went way up like it was going to over heat.....
How do I remove an alternator from a 2003 Kia Spectra?

Your alternator belt broke. That causes the battery light to come on because the battery is no longer charging, and it causes the car to overheat because the water pump isn't working. That's where it gets dicey. I replaced the alternator and belt. The new belt squealed a couple of days and then broke. Replaced the belt, new belt squealed and broke next day. Mechanic is trying to isolate current problem now. I've been looking at other sources who suggest checking the pulleys, tensioners, and water pump. Good luck from here.
