  5. Remove the wheel speed sensor sealing grommet from the right inner fender.
  6. Disconnect the speed sensor wiring.
  7. Push the wiring through the hole in the inner fender.
If not equipped with anti-lock brakes, the hole will just have a sealing plug.
  1. Remove the bolt attaching the power steering front bracket to the mounting bracket. Access to the bolt is gained through the hole for the speed sensor wiring.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the power steering pump and the front bracket as an assembly.
To install:
  1. Install the power steering pump and bracket.
  2. Reinstall the bolt at the adjusting slot, but do not tighten.

Fig. 4: Install a new O-ring gasket on the hose fitting
Use a new O-ring when reinstalling the power steering pressure hose.
  1. Reinstall the drive belt.
  2. Adjust the drive belt and tighten the power steering pump bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  3. Reinstall the splash shield.
  4. Reinstall the tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.


Sebring Coupe and Avenger
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove (drain, suction pump, etc.) as much power steering fluid as possible.
  3. Disconnect the return fluid line. Remove the reservoir cap and allow the return line to drain the fluid from the reservoir. If the fluid is contaminated, disconnect the ignition high tension cable and crank the engine several times to drain the fluid from the gearbox.
Cover any components located underneath the power steering pump with a shop towel to protect them from damage due to power steering fluid spillage. For example, the A/C compressor or alternator, depending on vehicle and engine, is below the power steering pump, so cover the A/C compressor or alternator with a shop towel before removing any hoses.
  1. Loosen (but do not remove) the power steering pump mounting bolts and remove the drive belt.
  2. Remove the pressure switch connector from the side of the pump.
  3. Disconnect the pressure line.
  4. Unbolt and remove the pump from the mounting bracket.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Inspect the pump pulley for cracks. Check the hoses carefully for cracks or signs of weakness.
  2. Install the pump, wrap the belt around the pulley and lightly tighten the mounting bolts.
  3. Replace the O-rings and connect the pressure line. Connect the pressure line so the notch in the fitting aligns and contacts the pump's guide bracket. Tighten the fitting to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  4. Connect the return line and secure with the clamp.
  5. Fasten the pressure switch connector.
  6. Adjust the power steering belt for proper tension and tighten the adjusting bolts.
Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, ATF+3 automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system of Sebring coupe and Avenger models.
  1. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.

Hope this help to solve it (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.

Where is the alternator located on a 2006 Ford Taurus?


Hi,

If yours is the 3.0L (2 valve) engine, then location will be obvious - next to the degas bottle on the engine.

However....if it's the 3.0L (4 valve) engine, then:
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  3. Remove the power steering hose bracket nut from the alternator mounting bolt.
  4. Remove the upper alternator mounting bolts. NOTE: The left side bolt will come out with the alternator.
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6. Remove the right front wheel.
  7. Remove the right inner fender splash shield.
  8. Remove the screws and the alternator splash shield
  9. Remove the torque converter inspection cover.
  10. Install the flywheel holding tool.
  11. Remove the bolt and the crankshaft pulley. NOTE: The crankshaft pulley bolt has a reverse thread. The crankshaft pulley and bolt are a molded composite and are one piece.
  12. Lower the alternator to allow access to the electrical connectors.
  13. Disconnect the crankshaft sensor.
  14. Release the oxygen sensor connector locator from the bracket.
  15. Remove the lower alternator bolt.
  16. Disconnect the regulator electrical connector.
  17. Disconnect the remaining wiring from the alternator and remove the alternator
I know....what a pain !
