Question about Ford Contour
The alternator is one of the easiest engine parts to replace. The trickiest part is setting the tension on the serpentine belt once you\'ve installed it, though your vehicle\'s part may have a self-setting tensioner. You can watch any online video on how to change an alternator and it will give you all you need to know. I have replaced alternators on several vehicles in several non-garage locations including a street in NYC (which is illegal, so that should give you an idea of how quickly I got it done.)
Alternatively, if you have an Advance Auto Parts nearby, their employees replace batteries in customer vehicles for free and are often inclined to help people who show them courtesy and respect. At the very least, they can run a volt meter to your alternator and determine whether it\'s dead. (You will want to be very nice and hopefully proffer a tip to get this kind of above-and-beyond service; it\'s the right thing to do.)
