Just changed mine was bit of a nightmare as couldn't loosen top bolt so had to remove casting that holds Alternator, easiest way to remove is take radiator fan assembly out just unplug on RHS and lift of clips at each side of assembly and drop down and then you have enough clearance to remove Alternator and or its casting

The other option, but be warned could cause damage to the motor mounts, is to use a cherry picker to lift the engine up enough to clear the alternator from the engine bay.

Does the alternator get removed from the bottom of the vehicle, or through the top of the vehicle? I have a 2005 ford focus with a 2.0l dohc 4cyl.


The alternator comes out from the bottom. It requires unbolting the engine mount and shifting the engine forward to wiggle the alternator out. You might need an assistant for this step.

How ton replace alternator in a 2007 ford focus


you did not state which engine you have but if you are not real handy and/or have experience this is not one you should tackle as your first alternator because...
all will require that you either drop the rear of the subframe or rotate the engine forward to remove the alternator.

everything else is the same...remove the belt, unbolt and remove

about an hour job with experience and two hours if a first time

2002 Ford Focus alternator replacement


I just did this for a friend this morning. Sounds scary bot it is easy.
1) remove P.S. fluid filler and pin it aside
2) remove radiator overflow canister and pin it aside
3) unplug wiring harnesses right over the alternator (back right of the engine compartment)
4) The scary part - remove the 3 engine mount bolts on that sode of the car
5) from the transmission jack up the engine just enough to tilt it forward slightly
6) it takes 2, tilt the engine forward and lift out the alt - you should have removed the belt at this time.,
7) take the sole (red) wire off of the alt.
8) finish in reverse order

How do i proceed to remove 2006 ford focus alternator? Where should I start?


Instead of removing the engine mount, just slide the fan housing (holds the two electric fans) out of the way. You only have to thumb the two top clips open (no tools required), then lift the housing from its lower supports and slide it several inches away from the alternator (really easy to do). This allows plenty of clearance to remove the alternator and replace it.
The hardest part is once the alternator has been disconnected from all its mechanical and electrical connections. It won't come out unless the passenger side engine mount is unbolted ( 3 bolts, 19 mm I think ) and the engine is pried forwards. Once this was done, it would be pretty easy. Don't forget to remove the negative battery terminal before starting.

You unbolt the alternator. Unclip the fans from the rad. Let the fans drop down without unbolting anything. Pull the alt out from the top. Its that easy.... Install is opposite.
