1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT alternator removal

I understand that the only way to really remove the alternator is to take it out from the bottom by taking the drive axle out. Can you explain how to remove the drive axel?

    Unfortunately, whoever designed the location of the alternator in the SOHC '97 Mitsubishi 3000GT with automatic transmission is a bozo. The alternator on my vehicle is not in the front of the engine cavity (as your solution indicated), but closer to the firewall. I removed the drive axle and the alternator finally came out the bottom.

Relieve alternator tension by releasing tension on the belt (it's the A/C pulley you get to it from inside the drivers wheel well), Remove the bolts holding the alternator to the bracket on the block, remove the two bracket bolts on the block and remove the bracket. Loosen the two bracket arms (marked L and R) of the top of the radiator and push the radiator forward about two inches, you will now have enough clearance to get the alternator out of the top (where the radiator was). Easy Peasy. Good luck!

I have changed mine twice and I find it easier to just pull out the radiator... Once I did that my alternator pulled right out from the top.

I'm not familiar with that vehicle, so I don't know if you have to remove the drive shaft to take off an alternator (sounds a little excessive) but if you look at the drive shaft you will see it leaving the transmission and heading back to the rear differential. there are several bolts that connect it to the rear dif. Take those off and the drive shaft will come down. If you decide to pull the drive shaft out of the transmission, then you are apt to loosing alot of gear lube.

How to take off the right fender off a Mitsubishi 3000gt


Removeal steps
1. Remove wheel arch liner, this is a two peice part front and back. both these need to be removed, there should be 8 screws to remove.
2. You should then have access to all fender screws. There are 10 screws to remove to allow removeal of fender. 4 under the bonnet holding the top of the fender. 2 for the front going to a bracket. 1 underneath the fender where the arch liner was. 2 under the main body of the car towards the front of the side skirts and a final one, near to the door triangle where the mirror is. The fender should then come away but there is a sealant to stop water getting in, make you you reseal when putting back on with 3M ATD, part no 8625 or similar.

Want to clean inside of headlight cover of 1997 3000GT


Remove the metal clips (if they're still there) heat it up with a hairdryer or commercial hot air gun to soften the seal and pry apart. Be CAREFUL, the lens might break. When you're done, reseal and check the wire inlet to make sure it is still sealed (might have been the cause of moisture ingress in the first place).

Alternatively, buy replacement headlights, the lexan may have dulled and it may not be dirt (very typical for 3000gt headlights)

Easiest way to get the alternator out of a '97 3000 gt sohc?


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.

I have 97 mitsibishi 3000GT alternator not workin got all the bolts off but how does it come out top or bottom?


the only way to really remove it is to take it out from the bottom, but get ready for a project. The only way to take it out of the bottom is to take the drive axle out, luckily you do not have to take it out of the transmission though. Good luck

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.

Need to change fog light bulb in my 97 mitsubishi 3000gt and cant figure out how to help please


Firstly remove undertray from front bumper approx 15-20 screws 2 of which are screwed into either side of the inner wheel arch near the bottom, you should then be able to see the back of the fog lamp. On the back of the fog lamp you will see a black circular shaped peice of plastic, turn this anti clockwise then remove, you will then see a metal clip holding the bulb in place this unclips from one side and you can then remove the bulb and replace with a new one.

How do you change an alternator on a 3000gt


it may be under the AC compressor. you will have to take off the front right tire and loosen all engine mounts. using an engine hoist, drop engine to allow room for maneuvering. disengage negative battery cable from battery, thats the black wire.
