The Car uses an alternator to run electricaldevices in your vehicle while the engine is running.The alternator assemblyhelps the voltage regulator to to maintain the steady voltage.
1) Before buying new alternator ,first of all determine which alternator your car needs.Car models made from 1966 to 1970 have a 1.1 L or 1.2 L engine. Models from 1970 to 1978 have a 1.2 L, 1.4 L or 1.6 L engine. Models from 1979 to 1987 have 1.3 L, 1.6 L or 1.8 L diesel engine. Models 1988 to 1992 options include a 1.3 L, 1.5 L, 1.6 L or 2.0 L diesel engine. Models made from 1993 to 1997 also offer a 1.8 L engine. Models from 1998 to 2005 in the United States were available only with a 1.8 L engine. So before buying for new alternator check out this details.

6) Now you can remove the alternator.to remove the alternator.you will have to remove the drive belt. For that you will have to loosen the two mounting bolts on the alternator with the help of socket wrench and this will help to take the alternator off the vehicle.
7) Now to install the new alternator assembly. You will require the torque wrench to tighten bolt .There are two bolts one is smaller and other is larger.Connect the smaller mounting to 18 foot-lb and the larger mounting to 40 foot-lb.
8) Then carefully connect the electrical harness and battery terminal wire to the alternator and tighten the retaining nut to the alternator terminal with a socket wrench. Install the gravel shield which you removed while removing the old alternator. Reconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench.

Change alternator


The car should be turned off it should be cool.Then follow this procedure. Park the car on flat surface.Block the back wheels of the car from getting rolled because the front portion of the car has to be jacked up.But before doing that disconnect the black wire of battery.Its necessary for safety reasons.Then raise the car by placing jack under the cross-member.Then after this the passenger side wheel has to be removed.Once the passenger side wheel is removed you will see the belt.Locate the tensioner to remove the belt. The tensioner is located under the alternator. Loosen the bolt with a socket wrench and this will loosen tension on the belt. Take the belt off the alternator pulley and the air conditioner pulley. Unbolt and remove the tensioner to make proper space to remove the alternator. After that there are few more parts that are to be removed to remove the alternator.So remove the air conditioner ,its fitted by two bolts easily seen.Remove this bolts.No need to remove the ac wires or any ac lines.Just lift the ac unit out and then remove the alternator cable from its back.You will also have to remove a nut bolt holding the wire.So remove that nut also,this will help to loosen the alternator wire.Then carefully wiggle and pull the wiring harness to the voltage regulator at the back of the alternator.Now the alternator can be removed.But its connected to the mounting bracket.The alternator is fitted by 3 bolts on mounting bolts.Once you remove this bolts the alternator can be lifted out from the bottom of the car. -------------- This is the procedure to remove the alternator.But for no problem while fitting the new alternator,i suggest you mark the location of each part with marker so that you dont face any kind of problem while refitting this parts again.You can also take a picture of each part before removing it.so that will help for any kind of alternator problem in future also.Do it slowly ,carefully and at day time ,so this will give you exact access of the parts.---------------Thanks.Helpmech.

Alternator


Loosen the upper bolt from the top and remove. From the bottom remove the adjuster bolt and remove. You'll have to remove the CV axle and remove the alternator from the bottom of the car. Not a very good design as you may already be aware of.
