Question about Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

My son removed the alternator of his 99 Caddy but doesn't remember exactly where each bolt was originally located that attached the alternator and some surrounding pulleys. They are of different lengths and one bolt has male threads on both sides, so I assume it has a particular spot that it needs to be in. I can go to Pep Boys or other and probably find a manual that has a photo of the engine compartment of a 1999 cadillac deville, but do you have one or are your familiar enough to show me the way? Thanks, Greg

How to take off alternator off Dodge stratus 2005


Google your question and find a wealth of answers. Daniel Arellano gave the answer to someone back in 2012 who asked the same question from Fixya. He said:

I just gave somebody the written answer to this same question. i do not know about the visual. But if you know what the alternator looks like , you can fix it.
  • Disconnect and label the wiring harness connections to the alternator (Painters Masking tape works very well for labeling Automotive wiring).Label the wires with a marker so you will place them back exactly as you took them off.
  • Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
  • Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
  • Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
  • While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
  • Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To reinstall the alternator, reverse the removal procedure.
To adjust the belt tension, leave the pivot and adjusting arms loose. tighten the belt to about a half inch pressing with your finger.

How to change alternator belt


Hi there,

Lift the car hood and disconnect the ground cable from the battery´s negative terminal. In the engine compartment, locate the alternator. On top of the alternator you will see a pivot bolt. Use a socket wrench to loosen this bolt, but do not remove it completely.

Locate the alternator belt and loosen it from its pulleys by applying pressure to the alternator and moving it in the direction of the engine. Once the alternator belt is loosened, pull it off from its pulleys.

Install the new alternator belt. It must run around the alternator pulley, the water pump pulley and the alternator pulley. With the new alternator belt in place, adjust it over the pulleys by bringing the alternator back to its original position, away from the engine. Make sure the belt is tight around the pulleys, then tighten the pivot bolt on top of the alternator.

Re-attach the ground cable to the battery and close the car hood.

Hope this helps...

Replace the alternator on a 97 isuzu rodeo


from Yahoo answers
The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!

Hope this helps you out!!
