Before doing that job, disconnect the postiive cable from the battery and make sure you know how to re-arm the security system and the radio code if you have those features.(also make a belt diagram if the sticker with that info isn't on the car)
To remove the alternator, loosen the bolts on the power steering pump and turn the transverse bolt under the pump to allow the belt to loosen. Once the belt is off, remove the bolts that hold the alternator in place, then remove the wiring. If the wiring has separate wires, not a rubber holder, be sure to write down where each goes so you can put them back on.
The alternator is reasonably easy to reach but sometimes requires a bit of twisting and turning to get it out and in,
If you loosen the front bracket a little it makes re-install a bit easier.
Reverse procedure to install.

What dash lights come on? if its the brake or ABS lights that means your brake pads need to be changed, in some brake pads there is a sensor that also has to be replaced if you have gone too far into the rotor.

Install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander


I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

Jeep will not start after being shut down


If you installed a stero system make sure the amp is not on all the time. Other than that try testing the starter and components.

1995 Jeep wrangler not charging properly


lf you have replacement cable ends on your battery, check that wires are not corroded under the straps. Also check alternator ground (run a ground wire directly to the alt case) I have seen "lazy" regulators at times but this is very rare. Also make sure drivebelt is tight enough to prevent slipping. Has your battery been charged and load tested?

It's actually super easy.
All you need is your year and make alternator belt and a wrench.
Take off the existing altenator, take off the old belt.
Once the altenator is off you'll be able to look further down below where the altenator was. You'll see a metal wheel that's a little bigger than the one on the altenator. This is where the new belt needs to wrap around.
I found it alot easier to wrap the belts around the two wheels before putting the altenator back on the engine.
Make sure that all bolts and seals are sound. (that's the last thing you need falling off in the middle of nowhere!)
Hope it helped!
