That is up to you. The more stuff you get out of the way, the easier it will be to remove your alternator. Disconnecting air connectors is not difficult, just mark it so you know how to put it back together.

How to change a 1999 Audi a6 alternator


Changing the alternator itself is the easiest of tasks on the A6. It's getting to it that is a problem.
Here is how.
Disconnect the headlight connections the remove the headlamps.
Disconnect the water hoses between engine and radiator.
Remove transmission cooler pipes from radiator. (You have to plug these somehow to prevent loss of ATF and dirt contamination)
Remove spot light covers from bumper. Look under there and you will see 2 alled bolts fixing the bumper to the chassis. Undo these.
Next remove the bumper bolts on the fenders whichn yo can only reach through the headlight holes.
Ease out the grille and disconnect any wiring that could be strained especially the one on the radiator lower hose.
Pull the right side of tf the bumper out more to see the alternator. You do not have to remove air con pipes, just un-hook any hangers.
You need a 17mm socket and power bar to remove the serpentine belt then you undo the 2 bolts attaching alternator to motor and the 2 elecric cables to the alternator.

How to fit a alternator belt on a ford focus 16.00 can you send me a pick


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }


Simply follow the steps


Disconnect the battery's negative cable and set it aside where it can't accidentally snap back onto the terminal.


Remove the car's accessory drive belt. Disconnect the belt shield by removing its two 10-mm bolts, push up on the tensioner by hand, pull the belt off the air conditioner or water pump pulley and remove the rest of the belt. Take note of how the belt loops around each pulley.

Open the cover containing the alternator's electrical connectors and disconnect them. Remove the bolt on the coolant expansion tank then detach the tank from its clip and secure it away. Detach the power steering reservoir, engine wiring loom bracket, ground cable and evaporative emission canister purge valve.


Unscrew and remove the alternator's first bolt on its right side. Unscrew the second bolt on the left and disengage it fully from the bracket; it cannot be removed from the alternator. Remove the alternator from the engine.


Install the new alternator, placing the built-in bolt within the bracket and tightening it first. Insert and tighten the second bolt.


Replace all other objects set aside in the reverse order they were detached. (evaporative emission canister purge valve, ground cable, engine wiring loom bracket, power steering reservoir and coolant expansion tank). Plug in the electrical connectors and replace the cover over them.


Replace the accessory drive belt. Loop it over all the pulleys except the one on the air conditioner. Retract the tensioner upwards as you did before to fit the belt on the A/C pulley.


Reconnect the battery cable.

    How to remove alternator



    Park vehicle on level ground.
    2. Remove battery from vehicle.
    3. Remove air cleaner outlet hose, engine under cover ( right side ) and exhaust pipe # 2 .
    4. Disconnect " B " terminal wire and coupler from the Alternator ( Generator ) .
    5. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) belt.

    6. Remove power steering pump. Do not disconnect hoses.
    6. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) cover.
    7. Remove Alternator ( Generator ) bracket mounting bolts.
    8. Remove Alternator ( Generator ).

    Power Steering pump has three bolts- 2 behind the pulley at 12 and 6 o'clock and one bolt on the back.

    Once you get the power steering pump out of the way you can remove the last bolt on the alternator


    Ok...I did not remove axle or disconnect hoses on power steering...I did unbolt power steering pump and moved off to side.

    after that I disconnected sensor on throttle body and very carefully lifted alternator through the top where your air intake assembly would have been at, right next to A.C. refrigerant lines.It takes a minute , you HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE SENSOR!!

    However it is a lot faster that taking off drive shaft and exhaust pipe!

    If you go to AutoZone .com they have exploded diagrams of the parts you have to take off and they will show you bolt locations, the power steering pump bolt at 6 o'clock drove me crazy.

    P.S. Get a ratcheting 12 mil wrench, it's a life and knuckle saver!!
