SOURCE: 2003 Pontiac Montana Front Wheel Bearings

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

Yes, it can be removed and run without the thermostat. However, your gas mileage will suffer and the heater may not work very well.

SOURCE: pontiac montana oil pan bolt diagram for removal

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

First, remove the negative battery cable. Then remove the wires off of the alternator then the bolts that hold it on and then remove the alternator. The schematic for the serpentine belt should be on the fan shroud. If not, draw one before removing it. Don't rely on memory.

2005 Pontiac Montana Battery runs down overnight if voltmeter on the dash indicates a charging rate of 1q4.9 volts of higher. Bad sticking? voltage regulator?

Replace the alternator, bad diodes in it allow the battery to discharge. Most all alternators now have built in regulators.

How to take out an altanator on a 1999 pontiac montana

    • Detach the negative battery cable from the battery of the Pontiac Montana with an open end wrench and move the cable so that it is not touching any metal objects.
    • 2Locate the alternator in the front of the engine on the passenger side of the engine compartment. The alternator will be on the top, side of the engine with a belt running to the crankshaft pulley.
    • 3Unfasten the electrical wire connector from the alternator by using a socket wrench to undo the nut and take the electrical wire connector off the terminal.
    • 4Loosen the bolts holding the alternator in place with a socket wrench just enough so that you can move the alternator on the bracket, and take the alternator belt off the pulley. Note: Do not remove the belt from the crankshaft pulley.
    • 5Undo both bolts on the alternator with a socket wrench until you can remove the bolts completely and take the alternator out of the bracket, removing it entirely from the engine compartment.
    • 6Position the new alternator in the bracket and slide the bolts back into place, tightening the bolts with a socket wrench until you can just barely slide the alternator on the bracket.
    • 7Place the alternator belt around the alternator pulley and check the position of the belt around both the crankshaft and alternator pulleys to verify that it is seated properly.
    • 8Place a crow bar between the alternator and engine block and pull back on the alternator with the bar to add tension to the belt.
    • 9Tighten the bolts on the alternator with a socket wrench while you keep the tension on the alternator belt.
    • 10Reattach the electrical wire connector to the alternator terminal by placing the connector and the nut on the terminal and securing with a socket wrench.
    • 11Connect the negative battery cable to the battery of the Pontiac Montana with an open end wrench.

Replace alternator on 2000 Pontiac Montana

The alternator does come out from the top. You need to loosen the two motor mount on top of the radiator support and rock the engine forward and secure it. Then removed the windshield wiper module cover, and you should have access to get it out.
I recommend for safety reasons, if you are not a experienced mechanic that you take the van somewhere for that service. When it comes to rocking engines and securing them, you are better off having a professional doing it for you.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Replaceing alternator on 2000 pontiac montana

I can help with this problem, I just today had to remove my alternator on our 2003 Montana van. Here is how it is done, first disconnect the wiper motor wires and assembly then the two wiper rods (flat) needs to be loosened and disconnected, next comes the pipe cross member that when removed will also remove the complete wiper assembly. The bad thing is, after you do all this and the alternator is not the problem. Which in my case it wasn't. I hope this helps all who are having this problem.
