If this is for the 3.0L Vulcan engine, it's really easy. There are two mounting bolts and a stud nut. The mounting bolts go through the left side of the mounting bracket and through the alternator (it's at the top of the serpentine assembly). You'll have to take the stud not off from the lower intake manifold to remove the second mounting bracket. Make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal first so that you don't fry anything. You'll also have to remove the nut that attaches the ground to the alternator and remove the wiring harness. The nut is enclosed in a black rubber pocket that protects the connection from moisture. After you've done all this, just pull it up and off the assembly. Installation is the reverse of removal.

I would like to know where the blower motor is in a 1999 taurus.(6 cyl. 3.0 DOHC) It works, but cuts in and out. Made some squeeling noises in the past. Thank you.


I hope you are ready for this one. The entire dash has to be removed to replace the blower motor. It one of Fords better ideas if you know what I mean. Its not a job for the faint of heart. It is a pain. Once the dash is removed, it is very easy to get to. I hope this is helpful.
