    How to install an alternator

    Sorry but this does indeed have a tensioner pulley. I just replaced an alternator on my 2005 ford freestar, I did this without adjusting said pulley. There are 3 bolts on the alternator, install new alternator with only one bolt, put the belt over the alternator pulley, use a piece of metal to pry the alternator into place and drop in second bolts when in correct position. (I used a a piece of iron flatstock. Took 15 mins from start of project till the end.

    Those are valve body check balls and they must be put back in the proper place for the transmission to function properly. Try not to panic. If you look closely at the passages in the valve body, you will probably notice that some of the them have small indentations beside them. If you find passages with this difference in the same number as the check balls, then install them and then install the valve body by lifting it straight up and carefully aligning it with the transmission housing before making contact with it. Good luck with your effort. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for trying

    1999 saturn 3 door. Driver door hinge part # 21170657 removed old piece one nut on door two on frame. removed plastic whell well cover to get to back to install new part but can't find access.

    I just replaced my hinge on the passenger side, I will assume you took the old one out by pushing it forward ( it then fell to the floor area and you retrieved it. The new one should align close to the opening and you will need to pull it through with needle nose pliers You will have to practice aligning the threads into the openings. I started on a 45 degree angle, it took me 5 tries before it lined up for the nuts.

    99 Olds Intruige removing the alternator

    disconnect the + lead of the battery
    Remove the wires going to the alternator. Mark them with a piece of tape so you can put them back to the same terminal.
    there are probably two bolts that need to be removed. One will be fastened to a slotted strap. Removing this one will allow the alternator to pivot on the remaining bolt. This will be the one that allows the fan belt to be removed from the pulley on the alternator. Removing the 2nd will allow the alternator to be removed from the engine.
    Installation of the replacement is the reverse procedure. Aftere you install the 2nd bolt, put the fan belt back in the slot and pull the alternator so the slack is taken up in the belt, then tighten the bolt
