I can't send u a diagram, but there is usually a plastic air deflector sheild on the alt. in the focus'. there are 3 small nuts to remove the sheild, i think your last bolt may be under this sheild. they are a pain. most people take the motor mount out and drop the engine a little ways to make it easier. hope this helps you and good luck

Alternator diagram for 2002 Isuzu Rodeo


Does anyone know the sizes of the bolts that bolt the alternator to the lower bracket and the lower bracket to the block? Someone has put a slip style lower bracket on my trooper as if I would have to adjust the belt tension manually and I am not too keen about that. I have bought a lower bracket but it did not come with the bolts.

Im trying to change the altinator in my 2003 silverado v-6. i took the two bolts out the electric componets and still cant get it loose.


Hi: !st Thing you need to do is disconnect your negative battery cable to prevent more damage.If i'm understanding you Right you Took the Wiring off the Alternator.Or did you Remove the Mounting Bolts? Here Goes Disconnect Battery, Loosen the Bolt on the Alternator Adjuster Bracket, This will give you Some Slack in the Belt ,BUT Locate the Belt Tensioner take a Breaker Bar or The Correct Size Boxed in Wrench or use a Ratchet and Socket. The Tension Is Spring Loaded to Keep Your Belt From Coming OFF. Your Belt Runs Probally Everything like your Alternator ,Water Pump,A/C Compressor,Power Steering So On. So Until you Take the Belt Either OFF or Just Release the Tension on the Belt,I'm Sure if you Have Removed All mounting Bolts and Your Wires to The Alternator, Your Alternator Will Come on Out with a Little Light Effert. Be Sure You Watch How Eveything Comes Off Cause You'll Have To Reverse the Way you Took It Off To Put it Back Together. Be Sure You Look At the Belt Routing Diagram Which is on either your Cross bar By The Radiator. Its Say Belt Routing Diagram. Hope This Gets you Going It Should.If You Follow These Instructions. Please Let Me Know how My Advice Helped You By Voting And Also You Can Send me A Message on FIXYA. From The WYOCWBOY

I am changing the alternator in a 1998 dodge neon, need diagram


No diagram...
The pivot bolt is the long bolt that holds the alternator to the frame.
If you loosen it, the alternator can "swing" with the pivot bolt as its .... well, pivot, or swing center.

The long bolt must be removed completely in order to remove the alternator.

Be sure to doisconnect the negative cable from your battery.

Hope this hleps w/o a diagram.

Does anyone have a diagram for a 1978 caprice alternator belt?


I can't send you a diagram,but it's not too hard to explain. Loosen off the alternator first. Two bolts, one you can see that goes through a bracket on the engine and another that is directly under that bolt on the bottom of the alternator that goes into the engine. Fit your new belt over the fan first, one blade at a time and on the pulley. Run the belt down to the bottom crankchaft pulley and then across to the alternator. Before you tighten the belt make sure that all 3 pulleys are in a straight line when you look from the side. If not move them so they are. Take a long screwdriver and put it in the hole on top of the alternator bracket and pry the alternator over so the belt is snug and a little bit more. Tighten the top bolt first,but be careful because it can strip the threads. Then tighten the bottom bolt.You will probably have to retighten it after a few days because the belt will stretch. If the belt squeals when you start or rev the engine then it needs to be a little tighter. If you strip the top bolt, just take it out and find a smaller one with a nut and washers and use it with the washers on the front to keep the new bolt from pulling through the bracket. Hope this helps.
