Question about Ford Taurus X
There are two bolts holding it on the mounting bracket. They are long 7 or 8 inch bolts. Remove these and disconnect the wires from it then pry it up between the alternator and the mount. It sounds more like a coil or plug wire problem to me as far as the now start when wet. But you definately have a battery drain issue.

Hi, disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative battery terminal on the battery using the battery wrench. Tuck the cable to the side where it cannot accidentally contact the terminal.
Plug the serpentine belt tool into the belt tensioner and use the tool to relieve the tension on the serpentine belt. Slip the belt off the tensioner pulley with your free hand and then slowly ease the tensioner back into position.
Move the belt off the alternator pulley.
Disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Depending on the engine, and your physical characteristics, this may be easier to achieve by going through the right front wheel well instead of the top of the engine well.
Unbolt the ground wire from the back of the alternator and then unbolt the alternator mounting bolts using the socket set.
