Can't remove the alternator! How do you remove the alternator on a Ford Focus 2001 without unbolt the engine mount?


The other option, but be warned could cause damage to the motor mounts, is to use a cherry picker to lift the engine up enough to clear the alternator from the engine bay.

Alternator problems


To change the alternator you do not have to romove or loosten the engin mounts. It is a tedious job but it can be done by loostening and removeing the bolts that hold the alternator on. There is also an adjuster on the alt. to tighten the belt up when it is replaced. You should have this done by a technician so you have a warranty with the job. I hope this helps. don,t forget to rate my answer
