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 !


Cheers,

Scott

I have 2006 ford taurus check charging system and battery light on what's the problem help me please


Battery Light usually means the alternator is not charging correctly and needs to be replaced. Check charging volts, it should at 14 volts or very close to that number. If the number is low below 12 then the alternator needs to be replaced.

Note: A bad alternator can damage the battery & vise versa

Check charging system light for 2006 ford taurus


You would need to check the connections on the back of the alternator with a meter.
You should have battery voltage on the large wire and on the orange yellow wire.
The other two wires involve the engine computer which turns the alternator on after the engine starts.
