Question about 1995 Ford Escort
A good Bible to pick at any auto parts store call" Haynes auto repair", great book and investment if you plan to continue to do any repair work on your own in the near future plus it come with a picture. you will need to jack car up and remove a splash shield to remove the lower bolt, then remove Alt. 2.0L engines (coupe) need the coolant reservoir removed for wiggle room. 2.0L wagons and sedans, you need to free the Oxygen Sensor wiring harness from it's retainer on mounting bracket and unbolt power steering and A/C hose brackets from top of Alt. bracket, then remove mounting bolts. 1: Disconnect negative terminal on battery-this is a rule or you'll suffer a blown diode in the alt. when you plug one of the wires back in. 2: Put a 3/8" breaker bar or ratchet into the square hole on the tension-er and pull to front of car to loosen and remove belt or shove out of way then ease it back. 3: Remove the a/c hose bracket from the top of Alt. bracket. Tip: You may need to also unbolt the a/c hoses from the strut tower to wiggle them around for more room. 4: disconnect the electrical wires from the Alt. Two use those stupid little snap connectors, use a small screw diver and carefully ease them off. The main one uses a small nut, that's another reason to disconnect the battery since that's a positive connection! 5: (Very Important) Unbolt the Power Steering reservoir and try to shove it aside a few inches. 6: Loosen, then remove the top and bottom mounting bolts. The bottom fastener has a sliding nut built into the Alt. bracket. You may want something handy to pry the Alt. up and out. 7: If your lucky then you can grab the A/C hoses with your right hand and ease them aside as you use your left hand on the pulley to lift the Alt. If not, your gonna be swearing a lot 8: Now you can re-install everything in reverse order or any order you want, just connect the battery terminal last.
