Replacing alternator


And your question is? You have 2 alternatives. Do it yourself or pay a mechanic. An alternator change out is about the easiest thing to do yourself. If you decide to do it your self, get a Chilton?Haynes Manual that covers your make, model and year. This book is really handy for a lot of things. The best thing to do is take the bad alternator out according to book instructions and take it to local/preferred parts store. That way they can test it and give you the correct replacement. And it avoids the core charge. Take new alternator home and put it is reverse of removal.

How hard is it to remove the oil pan on a 1999 Chevrolet Express


This is not a do it yourself job. Even with the right tools this job isnt easy. You may have to pull the exhaust and stering components. Also the motor mounts need to be unbolted so you can raise motor up to get enough room to clear the oil pick up tube.

Remove alternator on kia rio 2002


its not easy i wont lie to u i have a 2002 kia rio and ive removed the alternator 6 times the real trick is to take ur front passenger tire off and jack the car up high enough to have some wiggle room underneath. when u disconnect everything, youll want to face the alternator pretty much upside down and u just have to wiggle it out past your drive shaft and control arm

I am trying to replace the alternator/waterpump belt on a 1997 mazda protege, but there is another belt right in front of it. How do I remove the first belt and the alternator/waterpump belt? And what...


It isn't that hard of a fix, I recently had to change the same belt on mine. Right underneath the AC is a tension bolt, just loosen it up enough and the AC unit should roll down to loosen the first belt. You need to do the same process for the other belt. That tension bolt is located underneath the alternator. Just to save yourself the trouble, I would go ahead and replace both belts. A set only cost me $30 at autozone.

How do I change the alternator belt in my 1999 Excel (list did not have the year)?


hi mate,your problem is fairly easy to fix-----remove the plastic under tray on the drivers side,from underneath, undo the main alternator bolt,just enough to move the alternator, now from the top undo the belt tension adjustment locking bolt,then back off the tension adjuster itself until the alternator belt is loose and can slip off the pulleys-----fitting your new belt is the reverse to this. all the best.

1998 kia will not start need to know where the fuel pump is locat


there is a fuel filter in the tank and next to the engine block on the passenger side near the firewall. the fuel pump can be reached by folding up the back seats and pulling up the carpet flap under it there will be a plate secured by four screws after removing there are a few screws holding on the sending unit which contains the fuel pump. how many miles are on the kia? it could be the timing belt they tend to break if not replaced every 60k and altho guides say so this is not an interference engine meaning if u line it all up and put a belt on i will run again trust me mine did

Need to replace alternator in 2002 kia Rio 5


I just changed my brothers on a 2001 kia rio. You have to go from the bottom. There is a tensioning adjustment on the top you have to undo, as well as a bolt on bottom. It is hard to get it out because there is not a lot of room, i remember it hitting either a p/s line or the rack, and being frustrated. I used a floor jack and block of wood under the engine and jacked it up to reposition it. It gave me enough room to get it out. Remove the bottom bolt and disconnect the wiring from it and it should drop out with some effort. Getting it back in was harder. Once you get it back into position connect the wiring before you bolt it up all the way, put the lower bolt in, put the belt on, then back to the adjustment on top. Make sure everything is tight and you should be done.
