Quite often on contemporary cars other components have to be removed before you can remove units you're replacing. The design enginneers don't take convience or cost in mind for many aspects of repairs.

Where is alternator located in the engine compartment?

Are these guys SERIOUS??


The alternator is accessed from UNDER the vehicle LEFT SIDE facing the engine bay.


1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Loosen, but do not remove the alternator adjusting nut.

3. Turn the front wheels completely to the right, then raise and safely support the vehicle.

4. Unfasten the retainers, then remove the plastic lower splash shield.

5. Unfasten the alternator field circuit wiring connector. You must squeeze the locking tab to release it.

6. Remove the B+ terminal nut and wire.

7. Loosen the alternator pivot bolt, but do not remove it.

8. Remove the alternator drive belt. The alternator spill shield does not have to be removed.

9. If necessary, remove the bottom pivot bolt and anti-rotation tab.

10. Unfasten the three mounting pivot bracket bolts, then remove the pivot bolt and bracket.

11. Holding the alternator in one hand, remove the adjustment nut then slide the alternator off the T-bolt. The T-bolt does not have to be removed. Lower the alternator and remove through the wheel well.

12. You may need to use a C-clamp to drive the sleeve into the mounting ear for installation clearance.

13. Position the alternator in the vehicle, sliding it onto the T-bolt. Install the adjusting nut.

14. Install the bracket and pivot bolt, then install the three mounting pivot bracket bolts. Tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

15. If removed, install the anti-rotation tab and bottom pivot bolt hand-tight.

16. Install the alternator drive belt.

17. Tighten the alternator pivot bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

18. Install the B+ terminal wire and nut. Tighten the nut to 75 inch lbs. (9 Nm).

19. Attach the alternator field circuit wiring connector, making sure the locking tabs are engaged.

20. Install the splash shield, then carefully lower the vehicle.

21. Tighten the adjusting nut.

22. Connect the negative battery cable. Adjust the alternator belt.

I have a 95 dodge neon and for some reason the alternator pulley is off 1/4 inch or so in allignment with the harmonic balancer but its just enough as the pulleys seem to split my belts in two after 2000...

The alternator should be mounted to the engine with brackets. I would remove the brackets from the engine and shim them out with washers to make up the 1/4 inch that you need. You may also want to get bolts that are longer if the are short to start with. This should let you pulley line up.
If the alternator is too far out then remove the bolts from it and put the washers between it and the brackets that hold it on and it will move in. Hope this helps.

I need to change the starter in my 2001 dodge neon

The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures. Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Remove starter assembly. Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly. Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector. Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) . CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged. Position the starter face into transmission housing. Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug. Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

I have a 2003 dodge neon sxt and i can locate the alternator but i dont see how to take if off please help

To remove the alternator you will need to raise the front of the car and block the rear wheels. Disconnect the negetive wire from the battery. Loosen the upper alternator adjustment boltnut. Remove the right front tire and the accessory drivebelt splash shield. Loosen the alternator lower mounting bolt. Remove the alternator drive belt and disconnect the electrical connectors from the alternator. Remove the upper and lower adjustment bolts and remove alternator. You will have to remove the alternator bracket when you lower the alternator down. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this will help you.

How to install alternator belt 2001 Dodge neon

Below is a diagram for the belts on your car. You will see to the right, an adjusting bolt. This loosens the tension to slide the belts on and off. Once the new belt is on, apply pressure to get the belt tight (a long flathead screwdriver or crowbar should do) and while tight, re-tighten the adjusting bolt.

I am changing the alternator in a 1998 dodge neon, need diagram

No diagram...
The pivot bolt is the long bolt that holds the alternator to the frame.
If you loosen it, the alternator can "swing" with the pivot bolt as its .... well, pivot, or swing center.

The long bolt must be removed completely in order to remove the alternator.

Be sure to doisconnect the negative cable from your battery.

Hope this hleps w/o a diagram.

1998 Grand Voyager needs alternator replaced

First I removed both bolts to the alternator and and then a horizontal bracket. Because the alternator is on the backside of the engine I removed all the bolts (except one I could not reach) to the vertical bracket that holds the top bolt of the alternator that I could reach which allowed me to move the vertical bracket enough to wiggle the unit between the side of the engine and hoses and wires that run in the area. It is tight but there is just enough room to remove and reinstall the alternator.

Alternator belt

Place a jack with a piece of wood on it and place it under the oil pan. Put pressure on the oil pan but don't lift the engine. Remove the engine mount and jack the engine up and you will gain access to the nut you're after.
