I want to remove the alternator on my 1986 GMC 2500 Van.


Disconnect and label the wiring harness connections to the alternator (Painters Masking tape works very well for labeling Automotive wiring).

Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.

Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.

Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.

While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle.

To reinstall the alternator, reverse the removal procedure.
