There is two bolts behind the alternator,one short,one longer,then there is one that goes all the way threw the alternator,from the pulley side.You will have to remove the bolts to the body on the front two motor mount struts,and tilt the struts backward toward the engine.Then use a treaded rod and bend the end of the rod and use a L bracket with a hole in it to run threw the treaded bolt,and use the bent end to hook the eye on the strut mount on engine and pull the engine forward towards the front of the vehicle to gain access to remove the alternator,of course the power steering pump has to come of also and tensioner and plate behind the tensioner has to come off to be able to get the alternator out.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

All the adjustments are made at the alternator.You need to loosen the top and bottom bolt and if has an adjuster behind the alternators top bolt then that needs to be backed off as well.Slide the alternator towards the block{may need to loosen the alternator bracket bolt at the head].Remove the belt and put on the new one .Adjust the belt until ther is about a 1/2" of play in it and test run,if it squeals after start up tighten it some more until the sqealing stops.

How do you take out an old alternator and install a new alternator in a 97 honda civic


From the top of the car remove the slide and anchor bolt from the alternater bracket. remove your 3 or 4 pin plug and diconnect the pos power line beside the 3 or 4 pin plug ( on the back of the alternater). now raise the car and from below remove the lower bolt that allows the alternater to swing back and forth. the bolt fits through the housing of the alternater. remove the belt. now the alternater is free. this lower bolt that was just removed attaches to a bracket bolted to the block. remove this bracket and the alternater will slide out of the bottom of the car. complete the above steps in reverse to install new part.

Directions on how to remove the alternator on 1989 900 Saab. Does anything have to be removed to be able to get the alternator off. Also, any tricks to get belts off first?


Removing the alternator isn't the easiest job on this car!

The long bolt that allows the alternator to pivot to adjust belt tension ISN'T the bolt to be removed; remove the two bolts that hold the mounting bracket to the engine block. One is at the end of the alternator (away from the belt), the other is above the end of the adjusting bolt, not far away from the first bolt. Slacken the tension off the belt by loosening the adjusting bolt, then undo the two bolts holding the bracket to the engine block.

While you have the alternator off, check the bushings of the tension adjusting bolt; if worn/sloppy they should be pressed out and replaced; it'll extend the life of the alternator bearings.

Good luck!
