Remove and replace alternator


Hello,

Just follow these steps to remove and replace the alternator. You will need this tools, Serpentine belt tool, Battery wrench, Lug wrench, Floor jack, Jack stand, Socket set,

  1. Open the hood, locate the serpentine belt tensioner and move the tensioner off the
    serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool. Slip the belt off the tensioner
    pulley with your other hand and then slowly move the tensioner back to its normal
    position. You can pinpoint the location of the belt tensioner by following the belt
    routing diagram, printed on the fan shroud.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery with the battery wrench.
    Push the cable end away from the battery so it doesn't make contact during the
    repair.
  3. Turn the lug nuts on the right-front wheel counterclockwise until they're loose
    enough for hand removal, but leave them on for now.
  4. Lift the right-front end with the floor jack and support it on a jack stand placed
    underneath the right-front frame. Remove the lug nuts and right-front wheel by hand
    and set them aside.
  5. Slip the serpentine belt off the alternator pulley by hand. You can access the
    alternator through the wheel well. Unplug the wiring harness from the alternator
    by hand and remove the ground strap with your socket set.
  6. Remove the alternator mounting bolts with your socket set. Lift the alternator out
    of the engine well, through the wheel well. Insert the new alternator in reverse of
    how you removed the old one.
  7. Thread the alternator mounting bolt through the new alternator and into the
    alternator bracket by hand. Tighten the bolts with your socket set.
  8. Attach the alternator ground strap with your socket set. Plug the alternator
    wiring harness in by hand.
  9. Slip the serpentine belt over the new alternator pulley. Reinstall the wheel and
    lug nuts by hand. Lower the Taurus of the jack stand with the floor jack.
  10. Move the belt tensioner aside again and place the belt on the tensioner pulley with
    your free hand. Hold the belt on the pulley and slowly move the tensioner back to
    its normal position. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.
Hope this helps you.
Take care and good luck

How do I replace the alternator


Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

Serpentine belt


This procedure is for anybody who has has trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
