Alternator


Instructions
    • Disconnect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt in a counterclockwise direction. The terminal can be set aside, as long as it does not touch the battery or vehicle frame.
    • 2Remove the radiator fan shroud, fan and radiator by turning their bolts counterclockwise and disconnecting the electrical connections. The coolant must be drained before removing the radiator by loosening the drain plug on the bottom left corner of the radiator frame. The hoses are held on with pinch-style hose clamps that can be gripped with a pair of pliers and slid back on the hose for removal. Once freed from the hoses, the radiator can be unbolted from the top mounts and slid out of the frame toward the top.
    • 3Uncouple the power steering pump hoses with a line wrench by turning the bolt in a counterclockwise direction. The hoses can be set aside. Some fluid may drain out into the drain pan.
    • 4Firmly press against the tension pulley to loosen the primary drive belt. This pulley is located on the right side of the engine as the Aurora uses a transverse-mounted motor.
    • 5Slide the primary drive belt off of the alternator pulley wheel and release the tension pulley. The belt will try to fall, as there is too much slack, but it can be propped up to retain its path through the other accessory pulleys.
    • 6Unbolt the alternator's two top bolts with a socket wrench. It may be necessary to use a universal joint socket because of the tight clearances.
    • 7Remove the alternator's third bolt from underneath the vehicle by turning it in a counterclockwise direction.
    • 8Disconnect the primary positive charging wire from the alternator's output terminal by loosening the nut in a counterclockwise direction.
    • 9Manipulate the alternator out of the engine compartment, taking care to not bump or harm any engine components in the process. The alternator can be worked out of the mount, then wiggled free toward the top of the motor.
    • 10Replace the alternator by positioning it into the mount, then securing the charging terminal by tightening the nut in a clockwise direction. Tighten the bottom mount bolt first, then the two top bolts to secure the alternator.
    • 11Replace the primary drive belt by pressing firmly on the tension pulley and sliding the belt onto the alternator's pulley wheel. It should seat into the grooves on the wheel and should become tight when the tension pulley is released.
    • 12Replace the power steering pump hoses and refill the power steering pump fluid to the proper level.
    • 13Replace the radiator, fan and fan shroud by securing the radiator into the frame and tightening its mount bolts. Connect the hoses and electrical fan connections. Refill the coolant system to the proper level.
    • 14Reconnect the battery's main positive terminal by turning the bolt in a clockwise direction.

remove all the bolts that hold the alternator in place, Completely ,,, most mounts have a sliding washer, that when the bolt is tightened slides against the alt housing, normally thats what makes them hard to remove,, once you have removed all the hold down bolts,, you can gently pry on that portion of the mount,, and it will come off

You may not have remove the bolt completely to get the alternator out. Try removing the alternator with the bolt out as far as it will go, or, remove the bracket that the bolt is in. Failing that, try sticking a 2 by 4 down between the engine and the fender wall and pry against something strong on the engine. It will flex a certain amount on the rubber motor mounts and may allow enough room to sneak the bolt out.

Trying to replace alternator on a 99 Chrysler 300M but can't get the top bolt out due there's not enough room.Do I have lower or raise the engine


yes you do have to lower the engine so that the bolt will slide out threw the bottom of the inner fender frame. it is a pain to do this. take out the bottom motor mount alont with the top mounts on the motor but make sure u put a jack stand under the mount that sits under the motor so the motor does not fall
