I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. To change the alternator; the factory procedure at the dealership says to drop the sub-frame from under the front of the vehicle. Then everything is accessable. The tech at the dealership told me how they do it: (Its not easy!!) 1. Remove the right front tire 2. Remove dust pan from right front 3. Remove the brake caliper and caliper bracket 4. Remove the 2 bolts from the half shaft support bracket 5. Remove the half shaft axle assembly 6. Remove the serpentine belt 7. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator in place 8. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator mounting bracket 9. Remove the alternator mounting bracket 10. Remove the electrical connection on the alternator 11. Remove the alternator by turning the alternator until it will come out of the opening 12. Repeat process in reverse for installation. I did this twice in two weeks because of a bad alternator. The studs that are spot welded on the half shaft bracket will try to keep you from being able to remove the alternator. The left stud on the bracket popped out, when we were removing the alternator and it seemed to make it easier to get the alternator out. I just put a lock washer on the back side of the stud when I mounted the half shaft and it worked fine. Good luck

    Above way takes way to long so after a few minutes of looking we thought that there was enough room to bring the alternator up top and it worked just fine. Just had to remove heater control vac (?) on firewall and a couple things. Glad we tried it..Hope this helps.............Good luck

Charging light still on


I have found that alot of alternators require replacement of the plug also. You also should always replace the battery when you replace the alternator.

1992ford ranger -alternator dont charge battery


If there is power to the big wire that is bolted on to the back of the alternator and no power out of the small wires that plug in to the alternator then it is possible you need to replace your alternator. start the vehicle and check to see if there is 14 volts at the battery while the vehicle is running if there is then the alternator is good if not replace your alternator and charge your battery with a charger to make sure you have a proper charge on the battery.

E320 mercedez no start after replace alternator


is the battery still strong?

i'm just wandering why did you replace the alternator ? ( the battery could have been weak )

or while replacing the alternator, you could have forgotten some essential wires that is connected to the starter.

please verify that all wires prior to replacement of the alternator have been restore back to its original location.

tnx 4 using fixya,
