Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
I am trying to change the alternator and have to remove this bracket, how do I do it?
Its nuts and bolts.
what is the question on those?
1: remove battery neg lug first or , BOOM battery acid in face.
2: relax belt tension (all this is in the FSM or alldata.com _)
3: remove all bolts on the alternator pivots. 3 or 4.
5: remove all wires.
6: it now falls off
(C) wire harness hold down, (D) ground terminal
New alternators should come with a new bushing. If not, the old bushing should be used. Push out the pivot bushing as illustrated.

if you're installing new rotors, it's best to install new pads, which would require removing the caliper. new caliper hardware should also be installed. (metel slides on which the pads rest, springs which stop vibration) otherwise, the bracket can be removed with the caliper attached. compress the caliper piston before removal to relieve pressure to aid in removal. as long as the brake hydraulic system is not opened, you don't have to bleed the brakes

Simply follow the steps
Disconnect the battery's negative cable and set it aside where it can't accidentally snap back onto the terminal.
Remove the car's accessory drive belt. Disconnect the belt shield by removing its two 10-mm bolts, push up on the tensioner by hand, pull the belt off the air conditioner or water pump pulley and remove the rest of the belt. Take note of how the belt loops around each pulley.
Open the cover containing the alternator's electrical connectors and disconnect them. Remove the bolt on the coolant expansion tank then detach the tank from its clip and secure it away. Detach the power steering reservoir, engine wiring loom bracket, ground cable and evaporative emission canister purge valve.
Unscrew and remove the alternator's first bolt on its right side. Unscrew the second bolt on the left and disengage it fully from the bracket; it cannot be removed from the alternator. Remove the alternator from the engine.
Install the new alternator, placing the built-in bolt within the bracket and tightening it first. Insert and tighten the second bolt.
Replace all other objects set aside in the reverse order they were detached. (evaporative emission canister purge valve, ground cable, engine wiring loom bracket, power steering reservoir and coolant expansion tank). Plug in the electrical connectors and replace the cover over them.
Replace the accessory drive belt. Loop it over all the pulleys except the one on the air conditioner. Retract the tensioner upwards as you did before to fit the belt on the A/C pulley.
Reconnect the battery cable.
