You can get the alternator out but you need to remove all the brackets also. And that is a fair piece of work. I think one of the bolts to the bracket is behind the A/C pump to that has to come off also. If I was to do this job again. I would try removing the radiator and see if it comes out the front. Just my two cents worth - good luck.

Remove top front eng. strut and hook ratchet strap to top of eng and pull it forward, this rocks the eng. up and forward which gives you room to get alt. out of there. make sure it is hooked good cause you don't want it giving out when your hands are in there !

Tilting the Engine


Set the parking brake and then put the shifter in neutral so you will not damage the transmission. Remove both upper engine mounts, They make a special tool for this but its a little expensive so I just use a ratchet strap. Hook one end to the engine and the other to something solid on the front of the engine compartment. Pull the strap as tight as you can and then ratchet the engine forward as much as you can. It won't give you enough room to remove the alternator, but it will help give you room to take off what you need to to get it out.

The alternator is located on lower back side of engine do i have to remove motor mounts and lift it up to remove alternator 99 taurus 3.0 liter


This 3.0 engine must be the dual overhead cam engine, the best way to remove the alternator on this car is to first remove the passenger side wheel, next take fasteners off the lower part of the splash sheild and pull it up and tie up out of the way, next you will see a cover on bottom of alternator, remove the two small screws that hold it and remove cover. next remove the belt, then remove the upper alt bolt and then the bottom bolt, pull alternator off bracket and turn to be able to remove cable and the connector going to alt, the alternator should come out the bottom now, if you need a little more room, then remove the nut on the rear and front mounts, the nuts are the lower ones, easy to get to, they go through the frame then use a jack with a small piece of wood and jack on the oil pan, put wood on bottom of pan then jack, this will avoid damage to pan, slowly jack engine until you have room, i was able to remove without jacking motor good day.

Easiest way to get the alternator out of a '97 3000 gt sohc?


Manual says to remove the radiator but if you remove the bolts holding the radiator and push it out of the way it is possible to remove the alternator through the top but it takes some work to wiggle it out.

Removeing alternator from engine compartment


you have got to take out the coolant resevor. Also, you will probably need a serpintine belt tool to get the belt back on. i tried everything. its one of the tighter engine compartments out there.
