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.

do a continuity test from the large red wire on your alt to the battery,could be a fusible link or broken wire,sometimes a wire will break within the sheathing so it won't be visible by eye,check all conections for corrosion and either clean or repair

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

There's a large black ball or bullet shaped black plastic cylinder called a vacuum collector under the hood. Check to make sure this is leak proof. to do so just run the motor/engine for a few minutes and pull one of the vacuum lines off from it. yuo should get a long hissing sound. If not relace the two vacuum lines. If you do hear the sound then....it gets a little tricky. BEHIND the climate control unit is a vacuum harness with several different colored lines all held together at the connection end. If you can get at this, pull radio, pull ashtray assy, you may find that it has slipped off the control unit. Check these steps in the order that I've given, it will save you alot of headaches. It might boil down to needing a new/ used climate con trol center. Thanks and good luck, Dana
