For REMOVAL & INSTALLATION check this procedure...

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  1. Loosen, but do not remove the alternator adjusting nut.
  1. Turn the front wheels completely to the right, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Unfasten the retainers, then remove the plastic lower splash shield.
  1. Unfasten the alternator field circuit wiring connector. You must squeeze the locking tab to release it.
  1. Remove the B+ terminal nut and wire.
  1. Loosen the alternator pivot bolt, but do not remove it.
  1. Remove the alternator drive belt. The alternator spill shield does not have to be removed.
  1. If necessary, remove the bottom pivot bolt and anti-rotation tab.
  1. Unfasten the three mounting pivot bracket bolts, then remove the pivot bolt and bracket.
  2. Holding the alternator in one hand, remove the adjustment nut then slide the alternator off the T-bolt. The T-bolt does not have to be removed. Lower the alternator and remove through the wheel well.
To install:
  1. You may need to use a C-clamp to drive the sleeve into the mounting ear for installation clearance.
  2. Position the alternator in the vehicle, sliding it onto the T-bolt. Install the adjusting nut.
  3. Install the bracket and pivot bolt, then install the three mounting pivot bracket bolts. Tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  4. If removed, install the anti-rotation tab and bottom pivot bolt hand-tight.
  5. Install the alternator drive belt.
  6. Tighten the alternator pivot bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  7. Install the B+ terminal wire and nut. Tighten the nut to 75 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  8. Attach the alternator field circuit wiring connector, making sure the locking tabs are engaged.
  9. Install the splash shield, then carefully lower the vehicle.
  10. Tighten the adjusting nut.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable. Adjust the alternator belt.

Hope helps.

I have a 96 plymouth neon and it is leaking tranny fluid where could it be leaking at


Look at the front and rear seals and the drain pan gasket. Maybe put a drip pan or large piece of cardboard underneath car after running it until it is warmed up.

I just resently replaced a brken timing belt on my 96 neon


Neons used a DOHC interference type engine. I hate to tell you this, but the valves are bent, and your entire valve train (possibly your cylinder head) needs to be repaired or replaced all together.

Does the 96 neons have a speedometer cable??? if so how do you change it


How handy are you? Takes about an hour total to fix & no dirty hands. I had to do my own fix to my 95' neon about 3 times & on the last one I tried something different & never had a problem again, & sold it about 3 years later still working. If your up to it, I'll give you instructions. You have to pull speedo cluster out of dash , but it's pretty simple really. Let me know.
