If in charger you mean the regulator, the alternator/regulator come as one unit. The regulator is inside or attached to the rear of the alternator.

How do I replace my alternater belt in my Mazda 626 lx


If the alternator is on the top in the open, just loosen the alternator bolts a little bit. Then push the alternator to loosen the belt to remove it. Do the opposite to put the new belt on.

If the alternator is buried under a lot of other things, it's a lot tougher job.
Hope this helps.

Where is alternator located on 1996 cadillac deville? how do you replace alternator on 1996 cadillac deville?


The alternator will be located in the front of the engine on the drivers side. To replace it you must loosen the idler pulley and remove the serpintine belt, once the belt is off you must unhook any wires goin to the alternater and then there are two bolts at the bottom of the alternater holding it in place. Remove those and the alternater is loose then it may take some jockying back and forth to get it out. Obviously at this point the new one can go in the same way the old one came out.

Replacing alternater. jeep


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt.
  3. If necessary, remove any splash shielding for easier access to the alternator
  4. Tag and disengage the alternator wiring. It may be necessary to remove the alternator and mounting bracket from the vehicle as an assembly.
  5. If equipped, remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate.
  6. Unfasten the alternator mounting and pivot bolts and remove the alternator.
  7. If installing the original alternator assembly, push out the pivot bushing as illustrated.
These are the removal instructions per Chilton's Auto repair guide. Here is a link to help replace the drive belt when you're done. Just insert the year,make,model and engine to get the belt part number and the "Routing diagram".
Best of luck on your repair.

Alternator is not charging my battery in my 1996 volvo 960. how do I troublshoot before replacing the alternator?


Check whether the groundings to the body and engine are good. Try to install good grounding cables connected directly from the battery to the various body and engine areas. It is not advisable to replace alternator with higher amperage. Please stick to the original specification if new alternator is needed.
