2012 genesis 8 cylinder alternator removal

2010 alternator removal

then I found this

It's a little tricky.
I recently had to replace mine, it was still under warranty.

You don't have to removed any of the motor mounts.
A quick review of the process.

Release the pressure on the belt tensioner and remove
The belt around the alternator.
On the top left corner of the alternator you'll see a 10mm
Bolt bracket holding the alternator wires. Remove that 10mm bolt.
Then the alternator connector and power wire. A 12mm nut.
Then to remove the alternator you must remove the bracket which holds the alternator,
Which is the tricky part. The alternator has 2 14mm bolts holding it to the bracket, the bracket has 4 14mm bolts and
A 12mm bolt on the front. Two of the 14mm bolts are located behind the alternator.
Which means you would have to move the alternator toward the front of the car to reach the two bolts.
Then remove the bracket and alternator together. Then you would have to follow in reverse order to properly reach
Those 2 14mm behind the alternator.

It's going to seem like impossible especially your first time.
The Hyundai instruction just shows to remove the belt, under covers and the alternator. Literally.
I don't know where your located but I'm in Miami. If that's any help, we can do it together no issues.

Alternator


First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.

Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
Remove serpentine belt.
remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
replace reverse of removal.

Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.

How to change an alternator in 1983 honda accord


If your radio is coded, make sure you have the code and know how to re-enter the code in the radio.
  • Remove both battery cables and secure them away from the battery terminals.
  • Detach the E, F and N plug from the the alternator.
  • Slacken the alternator mounting bolts and move the alternator forward towards the engine.
  • Remove the drive belt.
  • Now undo all the mounting bolts and lift the alternator clear of the vehicle.
Re-fitting is just the reversal of the removal.
