Best is to go to a do it yourself junkyard and get an alternator off a like model car. Removal and installation depends on make and model, but most have two bolts and can be worked around serpentine belt.

Headlight and tail lights fade in and out when truck is running

The diodes in the alternator are defective. No need to replace alternator, just the diodes. Remove alternator and if possible take alternator in to a alternator and starter rebuild shop. The alternator can be checked at a shop like this (these shops are rare and sometimes difficult to find) to locate the problem within the alternator. If this does not solve the problem, there could possibly be a bad ground connection somewhere....first make sure the battery terminals are clean and the positive and ground cables are in good condition.

Astra alternator

Usually an alternator only needs bearings, brushes and possibly diodes and regulator. Most people rebuilding an alternator replace all of them. If you haven't rebuilt one or helped someone rebuild one it can be a little trickey. Some require that you solder the diode plate, others need very precise assembly. Often a rebuild kit costs more than a rebuilt alternator.

How can i fix my alternator at home

This Problem Surely Can Be Fixed At Home, But as Far as Rebuilding the Alternator Im Not sure that it is Cost effective, In other Words To Purchase One With A Warrentee on it Would Be Better than Rebuilding one Without A Warrentee.
The Ford You Speak of is Not Sold In The USA and this Impares me as far as Directions. I Can With 30 Yrs Experiance ADVISE you to Buy A New Alternator And Install it Yourself.
