Question about 2002 Ford Escape
OK. A common problem with alternators is that all of the bolts and nuts that hold it on must be loosened and then removed before pulling it out.
Also, I assume the belt is off of it before attempting to remove the alternator.
There are usually 2 sets or 3 sets of bolts and nuts if not more to take it off.
Compare your replacement part's holes to see how many bolts go through the holes.
Hope that helps.
