Okay, on your engine, the alternator is mounted below the rear cylinder bank of the engine, at the rear of the engine compartment. It'll be easier to access it from the driver's side front fenderwell (take off the right front tire then the plastic lining) or under the car. You might want to go ahead and remove both the liner and work from underneath as you'll need to remove your crankshaft pulley.

1: Disconnect the negative batery cable.

2: Disconnect the electrical connections from the alternator. The output wire is secured by a nut on the output terminal.

3: Revove the serpentine/drive belt.

4: Remove two bolts and one stud bolt that secure the alternator to it's bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulley.

Installation is reverse of removal.

After installing the alternator, reinstall the drivebelt and reconnect the negative battery cable.

To remove the crank-shaft pulley

1: As you'll aready have the wheel, liner, negative battery cable, and serpentine/drivebelt removed, as well as the car on jackstands, I'll omit those steps.

2: Remove the driveplate access cover and hold the ring gear teeth with a large scredriver or pry bar to prevent the crankshaft from turning.

3: Remove the nuts that secure the pullley bracket to the engine front cover. Remove the pulley and bracket.

4: The crankshaft pulley screws into the harmonic balancer with a left hand thread (reverse threaded so rightly loosey lefty tighty). Trun the crankshaft pulley clockwise to loosen and remove it.

5: Hopefully this is where you'll end with the pulley. The harmonic balancer is no fun to remove, but let me know if you need to know this too. After you have your alternator installed, put the pulley back onto the harmonic balancer before installing the serpentine/ drive belt.

Hope this info helps.

How do you change the block heater in a 1999 Ford Taurus S.E. 3 litre 24valve duratec engine


Remove the inoperative heater and install the new one. You just have to gain access to the side of the engine block where the heater is located. Might have to remove something that is blocking access to the heater like the starter or something else.

Replacement Procedure for 2006 Ford Taurus Alternator


You will need a long 15 mm wrench for the belt tensioner. Pull the wrench to the front of the car very hard to make the tensioner move. Remove the belt from the idler pulley below the alternator. Remove the 15mm bolt on the right side of the alternator (looking at the pulley on the alternator). Remove the 13mm bolt on the support bracket and the support bracket from the alternator to the bracket. Disconnect the electrical connector and the battery cable at the alternator and remove the alternator. Install in reverse order. I hope this has been helpful. Please leave a good rating.
