Remove alternator on 99 eldorado norhtstar


Okay, i will start by saying this is a job that should only be done by someone who works on cars, first thing first is if your car has onstar you must disable the back up onstar battery, if power is removed the back battery will be turned on and run until it drains out and then will need to be replaced , does not matter if you reconnect battery quickly. so first make sure key is off and out of ignition next open driver door , leave open , dissconnect battery, this way the back onstar battery is not turned on.

With that done you will next remove the belt then remove the front alternator bolt.then you will need to drain and remove the radiator,next you will need to raise and support car, remove front splash sheild, next loosen rear alternator bracket from engine.

Remove top bolt,front lower mounting bolt and lower rear mounting bolt, remove upper rear mounting bolt.
Remove air duct from rear of alternator. Disconnect wiring from alternator. next remove front alternator/ A/C bracket. rotate alternator and remove. To install reverse procedure .
GOOD DAY.

Replace the alternator on a 97 isuzu rodeo


from Yahoo answers
The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!

Hope this helps you out!!
