Getting it out is tight, very tight, easier if you have a late 91 with the mitsubishi alt rather than the bigger bosch. Remove the IACV (idle air control valve), its right above the alternator connected to the throttle body, push your a/c hoses out of the way, and the alt comes out the top. Dropping it is possible, but removing exhaust and some support parts is necessary.

Disconnect the battery so you don't melt your fingers. Remove the belt by relieving the pressure at the belt tensioner. Remove the alternator wiring harness and the two or 3 long bolts that hold the alternator on. Swap for the new alternator and put it all back together.

SOURCE: 1991 mercury capri turbo xr2: are engine rebuild

Your car looks like a Ford Capri engineered in Australia from a Mazda 323. These are quite common in New Zealand and Australia . Unfortunately they came out at the same time as the MX5 and didn't sell well.
Do a search on Google images for Ford Capri to see if they are the same. If they are parts are readily available ex Mazda

SOURCE: can not find a window regulator for a 1991 mercury capri xr2 does anyone know where to find one?

You need to replace it. I ran into the problem a month ago. I removed the door panel and noticed the cable all stretched out. It's hard to find parts but located one on line. If you have a mechanic have the mechanic install the regulator. Dob't attempt it yourself if you are not familiar with it. It looks simple and i attempted it and it ended up costing me an additiona 400 dollars espicially when I damaged the lock. good luck


the above answer is bull.. its kind of hard, but if you are patient and can follow instructions i suggest checking out the how-to section of www.techcapri.com and there is an illustrated step by step guide on how to do it. make sure you use the right tools and follow their instructions. the one exception i made was that when it came to re-mounting the motor, i couldn't get an epoxy that would hold bolts onto it so i used zipties.. just make sure you tighten them reeeeaaaally tight, otherwise the motor will still sometimes swing out and block the window from going down

Remove alternator, replace alternator. Get your self a service manual if you can't figure it out. They sell them at the same place the alternator is sold.

Can I get a diagram for a removal of a alternator on a 1991 Mercury Capri XR 2 turbo


Disconnect the Red battery terminal first and then loosen the serpentine belt by moving the tensioner pulley with the correct socket to permit slack enough to dislodge the serpentine belt from any pulley such as the idler pulley or other pulley. Pay close attention of how the belt is routed prior to removing. Remove electrical connections to the alternator. Remove all alternator mounting bolts to remove the alternator. I would recommend a Haynes manual from the parts store on your vehicle. I will help you now and well into the future with all problems that may occur. Be sure you have a fully charged battery at all times as a low battery will cause the internal voltage regulator to over heat and burn up due to the need for more amperage than the alternator can generate.
