How do you change the alternator on a 1994 Ford Thunderbird 4.6L V8?

remove the serpentine belt by taking the tension off of the tensioner pulley. do this with a serpentine belt tool. you could also use a 3/4 drive ratchet or 3/4 breaker bar. insert the 3/4 drive into the square drive hole. while facing the front, angle the ratchet as far to the left as possible. remove tension by pulling to the right, remove the belt from the alternator.(note) if there is no diagram of belt routing, make one yourself to facilitate installation. remove the connectors from the alternator, remove 3 bolts, remove the output cable. check the other pulleys for wobble. the tensioner should be replaced, especially if the arm doesn't move smoothly through the length of travel

NOTE: Some Toyota models have an access plate in the fender well to facilitate starter service. Check for such an access point before beginning starter service.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove battery, battery tray and/or igniter bracket, if necessary.

Bad Starter...How do I remove it?

I just changed my starter recently, when you look at the starter its in a very tight spot. Loosen the transmission lines running right under the starter. As your laying under your suv you will see 2 lines running right under your starter, just follow the 2 lines toward the engine and you will see a small bracket that holds them together. Losen the screw and wala you now have several inches of play now that u you can move the lines out of the way, this will grant you ease in getting the starter in and out. This was my first time changing my starter and i had the car for 11 years ^_^ I changed it in 2-3hrs remember to disconect your battery also before you begin ^_^

I need to change my starter on a 1991 mercury sable

Starter are one of the easier mechanical engine parts to change.

2) Disconnect the electrical cable running to the solenoid on the starter.
3) Remove the two bolts holding the starter in place.
4) Pull the starter out.

To install another starter, do the above steps in reverse order in reverse.

Need to remove and replace starter, would like to be able to see a diagram

Your best diagram is the starter itself...make notes on where wires are attached and what you removed from where. Always remove the positive cable from battery before you begin and never allow wires on one starter terminal to touch ones from adjacent terminal when you replace them.
Remember...your starter turns the engine so it can does not start your engine. Always have your battery charged and load tested to avoid changing the starter because the battery is bad.
