Use a ratchet without any socket on the idler/tensioner pulley, this will loosen the tension on the belt to be able to remove it. after that, it's easier to remove the alternator with the braket still on, that bracket has a few long bolts 3-4 to remove, the, disconnect wires from alternator. installation is reverse procedure as always

What's your problem?1995 gmc safari alternator replacement. Need some kind of diagramed overview of the alternator and how it connects, what it looks like, how to do it basically


Hello! First see Serpentine Belt configuration diagram below... Alternator is part "C"...

If you have a voltmeter...read across the battery with engine off...Record...Start engine read again...Voltage must be 1.8 -2 volts higher; This means Alternator is working...

To Remove:disconnect (-) battery cable...Air Inlet Duct...Serpentine Belt (idler pulley maintains tension)...Heater hose brace...Wiring from Alternator...Mounting bolts...Remove alternator...

To Install: Install Alternator loosely...Tighten Rear Bolt to 37 ft. lbs...Front bolt to 18ft. lbsTighten Brace to Intake to 18ft lbs....Connect wiring...Install belt...Adjust Idler Pulley so belt moves less than 3/4" when tight...Connect (-) battery cable....Re-test as noted above...Guru...........Saaile

How do i replace the altenator


1. Remove the plastic air intake system which includes the air filter, 1 vacuum hose, the tube that runs to the carb, the tube that runs off to the left. There are three bolts that hold the bottom of the air filter housing on. Most of this system is a snap together assembly. Just pull it apart.

2. The alternator will have two bolts on the front bottom. The left one is a double sided bolt and the right one is a pass through bolt with a nut on the back. Stick a wrench or a short socket wrench on the nut behind the alternator and remove the pass through bolt from the front. Then remove the double sided bolt from the left side.

3. This leaves the alternator loose and being held by the belt. remove the belt from the alternator and wiggle and jiggle the alternator out of the mounting area (very tight squeeze to get it out). You can put a larger size can of fruit or something in the place of the alternator to hold the belt in place so you can remember how it looks.

4. You will need to loosen the belt tensioner to put the belt on the new alternator. Remove the can of fruit if you chose to do that but be careful to not accidentally remove the belt from the 5 or 6 different places it passes through. Place the new alternator, put in the bolts and tighten. Loosen the tensioner and put the belt on. Tighten the tensioner and adjust as needed. Replace the entire air intake system by snapping it all back together and bolting it in one piece at a time.

How do you adjust the idle for a 2002 gmc safari


the idle isn't adjustable. you might want to have the idle air control motor checked out. they are prone to sticking in the open position allowing more air into the intake

Air filter


There should be a panel under the glove box with a few screws. Remove the panel and replace the filters.
