  • How do I change alternator - replace-alternator-ford-mercury-800x800.jpgThe alternator in a Ford or Mercury is usually found on the left side of the engine bay.
    The alternator inside the engine bay of any Ford or Mercury vehicle serves essentially the same purpose as the generator did in older cars; it is the electrical power plant for your automobile, turning the mechanical energy of your engine into electrical energy you can use to run your headlights, taillights, radio, etc. When the alternator no longer works properly you will begin to lose the ability to use these electrical systems and the battery will no longer be recharged. Soon, you will not be able to start your car. Have a question? Get an answer from a mechanic now!

      • 3 Disconnect the two wiring harnesses from the alternator. Both of them simply snap in, so just depress the tabs and pull out the harnesses.
      • 4 Unbolt the three bolts holding the alternator in place, using your socket wrench.
      • 5 Remove the old alternator and replace it with the new alternator. Bolt it into place with the three bolts you removed in the previous step.
      • 6 Push the two wiring harnesses into the new alternator.
      • 7 Turn the tensioner pulley clockwise again, using the socket wrench, then place the belt back over the alternator pulley.
      • 8 Reconnect the negative battery cable to the negative battery cable.

    replace the alternator. or you can change the diode trio if it is on the outside of the alternator. this is the part that changes the alternating current from the generator (alternator) and makes direct current
