Changing the value cover gasket on an 87 olds cutlass supreme 3.8l


Remove the alternator belt, pay special attention to how it is attached, then remove the 2nd mounting bolt and pull the alternator out of the engine compartment. Check the new alternator against the old one to be certain that the mount points and electrical connector are the same. If the alternators do not appear to be identical, return to the parts store to retrieve the correct alternator for your vehicle. Use a small 10mm wrench to connect the electrical wire to the rear of the new alternator.

How do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


Hello there,
To replace the alternator in your car:
Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
All the best. Elect_Comp

How do you get the alternator out of a 2003 Focus SE, 16V Zetec DOHC?


Disconnect battery ground cable
Remove the ground wire (black) from the alternator
Disconnect the positive wire (red wire held on by a retaining nut) from the back of the alternator
Now disconnect the wire harness from the alternator
Remove the drive belt
NOTE: Some models use a belt tensioner that applies tension to the drive belt.
The best tool to use for this job is the serpentine belt too.
If you can borrow one from a neighbour you can get one at PartSource. (Part# 648451)
On other models you will have to loosen the adjusting bolt on the alternator bracket.
If you're not sure about how to remove the drive belt, visit your local PartSource for free print outs of car specific instructions.
Take off the mounting bolts from the alternator bracket
Now remove the alternator from the engine compartment

Installing Your New Alternator
Put the alternator in the engine compartment
Install the mounting bolts that connect the alternator to the alternator bracket
Connect the alternator wiring harness
Now connect the positive wire to the alternator
NOTE: Your new alternator should come with a retaining nut.
Remember to remove the nut before you install the positive wire.
If it doesn't keep the old nut.
Connect the ground wire to the alternator
Now install the drive belt
This is a great time to replace your old worn out belt. When inspecting your old belt look for signs of cracking, oil soaked, hard glazed, splitting or fraying.
All these signs mean it's time you replaced your drive belt.
If your vehicle no longer has the belt routing diagram under the hood, visit your local PartSource for a free print out of the belt routing diagram.
Reconnect the ground battery cable .

Remove alternator


Hi Friend:

To remove your Alternator.

#1) First disconnect your negetive Battery Cable.

#2) Then you'll need to get a Breaker Bart or a Rachet and Socket,To take the Pressure off the Serpitine Belt by using the Ratchet and move your Belt Tensioner to remove your Alternator Belt.

#3) The tensitioner is and Alumium Part with a a Pulley on it ,thats keeps pressure on your belt.Move it both left and right until you see which way it loosens tension.Then While Tension is off your Alternator Just reach over and Pull belt Off.

#4) then un-plug and Disconect the Wiring going to your Alternator(NOTE) Mark your Wiring so you get it back on the way it comes off.

#5) Then you'll have 2-3 Bolts Holding Alternator in place ,Just Remove them And your Alternator will come Off.

#6) Take the Old Alternator to Parts Strore and Have them Test it,Just to Verify its Bad. And By taking it you'll save an extra Trip because they'll want your Old Alternator as a Core.

#7) Plus you can match the Old with The New to Make Sure They are Selling you the Right One,

99 Olds Intruige removing the alternator


disconnect the + lead of the battery
Remove the wires going to the alternator. Mark them with a piece of tape so you can put them back to the same terminal.
there are probably two bolts that need to be removed. One will be fastened to a slotted strap. Removing this one will allow the alternator to pivot on the remaining bolt. This will be the one that allows the fan belt to be removed from the pulley on the alternator. Removing the 2nd will allow the alternator to be removed from the engine.
Installation of the replacement is the reverse procedure. Aftere you install the 2nd bolt, put the fan belt back in the slot and pull the alternator so the slack is taken up in the belt, then tighten the bolt
