Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
Depending on where it is, no. If it's at the top of the engine, it should not be difficult. On some engines they are located below and are difficult to get to. On most however, they're right toward the top and you simply unplug the wiring harness, undo two bolts (leave belt hang on other units, dont' take off) and put new one in. Tighten new alternator by pulling up on it, (or pushing down if applicable; most pull upward/forward. While holding in place (with bar or something if possible), tighten the main (long) bolt to lock it in place. Do not release pressure yet from bar, and tighten the slider bold until snug (tight/should not be able to loosen by hand and require some force with socket/wrench to loosen again).
Please let me know if you need further assistance with this matter.
