Manual says to remove the radiator but if you remove the bolts holding the radiator and push it out of the way it is possible to remove the alternator through the top but it takes some work to wiggle it out.

Undo the two bolts holding the alternator bracket on the block and remove the bracket. Then remove the two brackets marked L and R holding the top of the radiator in place. Pull the radiator forward (moves about two inches, and turn the alternator up as you remover it. It will come out of the top, you just have to wangle and turn it through the space where the block bracket was. Good luck.

My alternator for my 2004 Mazda Tribute Wont Charge and My Dash Wont work at all.


it is possible that the after market radio is the problem
unless it is installed correctly it may be draining power from the dash wiring or using that schematics as an earth incorrectly
fitting after market radios in modern cars is not a diy effort as the original radios are now attached to the ECM of the car and fitting the radio incorrectly will cause problems

The car is shutting off after starting then draining the battery. I have tested the battery and it is still good. Is this an alternator problem or something else?


Yes, the majority of vehicles can be started and then the battery completely removed from the vehicle and continue to run. If your Jeep dies and then wont restart (or is hesitant) because of a dead battery, this would most likely be the alternator connections, or event he alternator itself. Obviously the alternator is not supplying current to the vehicle. Most autopart stores can check the alternator for you, often free of charge and the easiest placed to start.

Dead alternator


are you buying new or remanufater ,how long do they last ,are they covered under warranty ? im sure there are some brands that advertise longer life or have a longer warrenty but with 410,000 miles i dont think your car will last that much longer without something major going out gota think about price vs life expectance you might find a 5year warrenty at 300$ but your car tanks in 1 for example

Electrical problem with jetta 1990


sounds like a defective alternator, also the battery light should come on when key is first turned on but goes off when car is started,also make sure you have a good ground to alternator body some of these alternators wont charge without the ground. make a ground wire with to connector eye lids, connect one end to alternator and the other to the frame, try thatfirst .

Dodge 1998 Caravan So we know HOW to get the alternator off....but not how to actually get to it. What is the easiest way?


Remove the negative battery cable and the drive belt. With the 2.4 liter engine, access is direct. With all of the v-6 engines, Chilton's manual says to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly first. Remove the alternator adjustment bolt, then the pivot bolt, then the wiring in that order. Replace in reverse order. Finally, check the operation of the alternator (engine running) --you should see 13.5 to 14.5 volts DC at the battery (recharge the battery with an AC powered charger first.) Don't depend on the alternator to recharge a deeply discharged battery. Hope this helps.

Need advice on how to pull alternator out of engine compartment not enogh room


You can get the alternator out but you need to remove all the brackets also. And that is a fair piece of work. I think one of the bolts to the bracket is behind the A/C pump to that has to come off also. If I was to do this job again. I would try removing the radiator and see if it comes out the front. Just my two cents worth - good luck.

Trying to get a alternator out of a 85 toyota truck sr-5 xtra cab


Oh, that is fun. It is easyest to drain the radiator and pull the lower radator hose. it is tight but it will come out. it beats pulling the distributor and power steering pump though. That is a tight fit. Good luck.

Since the date in this post was a few years ago, I'm just gonna put it on here for someone else who may encounter the same issue. My '96 did the same exact thing. It was IAC (idle air control) valve. $50 and runs perfect...
