Remove the positive wire from the battery. remove the wires from the back of the alternator. loosen off the drive belt and undo the mounting bolts of the alternator and lift out. replacement is the reverse procedure.

Lights dimming, battery light flashing, makes a clicking noise for a few seconds then nothing at all.


battery light flashing is an indicator that the car is not enough current to run the car electrical system. these can be a result of a bad battery or bad alternator. Most auto parts stores can check for you if its the battery or the alternator. If its the battery it should be easy to change it since the process takes a few minutes and most auto parts stores give discounts if you surrender the old battery. The process for changing the alternator may be time consuming more money but it will be worthy it. Thank you for using fixya!

Serpintine belt was replace as was the idler arm. alternator is charging, and noise difference when ac is on or off. But noise is very loud when engine is running. When serpintine belt is off there is no...


With the belt off, try to spin each pulley that spins and see if there is any roughness or flat spots on the bearings that you can detect with your hands.

Usually, the bearings on Alternators or idler pulleys go bad before the a/c because the a/c should have oil in it. However, it could be any of the pulleys that the belt spins on.

It can be a process of elimination of changing parts until the sound goes away, if you can't detect it under free spinning conditions with the belt off.

I replaced the battery in my 01 volkswagon passat, it ran for a while then the engine slowly die, instrumental lights dim and the car cut off. It started again after a jukp but, continued the same process....


The alternator is shot, The car will run on a new battery for about 20 mins, then it fizzles out. The alternator contains the regulator, You can take it and get it checked, but I'm sure that is the problem, get your battery charged up while you do the alternator,and keep an eye on the charge light. Make sure it is charging, just because it is new doesn't mean it is good. Hope this helps.

My truck is making a whinning noise when you crank it up. It then gets louder as you give it gas.


You could have a Serpentine belt going bad or the tension pulley has gone bad. The noise can also indicate a bad alternator bearing and your going to have to replace the alternator soon. The alternator will still keep working and producing 13 to 14.5 volts, but the bearing may be bad and will fail soon causing your alternator to total fail then. Good luck and hope it's a simple serpentine belt or tension pulley that needs to be replaced other then a alternator. If it's the Alternator that has gone bad, Auto Zone will have the replacement part and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools.

Hi Do you have the repair process to take out the alternator and replace? 1988 Subura GL


You disconnect the battery. Loosen the alternator tensioner bolts, the alternator securing bolts. Take out bad alternator to autoparts store and get a rebuilt one.

Bad alternator


the alt is on your fan belt but not sure if it's top or bottom of your engine if it's the top then you might be able to loosen your belt tensioner remove the belt and unbolt the alt, mark all wires both on car and old alt, it really helps when refitting the new 1. then reversing the process to fit the new alt. if it's bottom of your engine then you might need to lift the engine, a lot of work.

Replace alternator


I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. To change the alternator; the factory procedure at the dealership says to drop the sub-frame from under the front of the vehicle. Then everything is accessable. The tech at the dealership told me how they do it: (Its not easy!!) 1. Remove the right front tire 2. Remove dust pan from right front 3. Remove the brake caliper and caliper bracket 4. Remove the 2 bolts from the half shaft support bracket 5. Remove the half shaft axle assembly 6. Remove the serpentine belt 7. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator in place 8. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator mounting bracket 9. Remove the alternator mounting bracket 10. Remove the electrical connection on the alternator 11. Remove the alternator by turning the alternator until it will come out of the opening 12. Repeat process in reverse for installation. I did this twice in two weeks because of a bad alternator. The studs that are spot welded on the half shaft bracket will try to keep you from being able to remove the alternator. The left stud on the bracket popped out, when we were removing the alternator and it seemed to make it easier to get the alternator out. I just put a lock washer on the back side of the stud when I mounted the half shaft and it worked fine. Good luck
