    It's the alternator on a 1991 ford probe. all loose no hole big enough. Do I have to drop the AC compressor

  • Kevin Daniels Oct 11, 2010

    I'm not sure on the Probe but there are lots of other cars where the ac compressor has to be dropped to remove the alternator. You might have to do that. Don't disconnect the ac lines from the compressor; just drop it and move it aside enough to get the alternator out and in again. Good luck.

How to remove and replace Tata Indica gearbox

not a bad little car i think,done one last year for a new clutch and i it was that easy that i honestly do not remember having any problems with it ,only one tip i will offer though and i do this on all motors and thats to drill a hole in the bellhousing with a hole cutter big enough to get a 10mm socket 1/4 drive through the hole to tighten the clutch bolts ,getting to old to struggle now so i make a hle that aligns up with the clutch bolts then fit bolts holding the clutch finger tight then once the box goes in nice and easy as the clutch plate can move a bit then two big bell housing bolts in and then rotate the flywheel twic tightening the bolts one by one .easy better than hurting ones back with a struggle

How do i add gear oil to a 1991 honda accord manual transmission??

There should a "big bolt" on the side of the transmission. Take bolt out and see if you can put your finger in the hole and bend your finger .....if you get oil on your finger it has enough oil in it ( or if you take the bolt out and oil comes out, its got enough oil in it.) Make sure to use honda oil....... it should be 90 weight.

How do i remove the fan clutch on my 1995 BMW 325i

You have to purchase or make a tool to hold the pully stationary as you unscrew the fan from the water pump shaft. I bought a strap of steel 1/8" thick and 1 1/2" wide and 24" long at the hardware store. I then drilled two holes in it close to one end, and close to one side of the strap. The hole diameter is just big enough to fit over the heads of the 10 mm bolts that hold the pulley in place. Note that the bolts are in a rectangular pattern. It is best to space your holes to fit two bolts that are the long side of the rectangle. Then I had to grind a half-moon shape into the side of the strap between the holes to allow for the shaft so the tool would get close enough for my little holes to fit over the bolt heads. If this is unclear, you should be able fine a picture of the tool on an automotive tool website.
Then I use a crescent wrench with extra narrow jaws to turn the nut on the fan clutch that screws onto the water pump shaft. This is a lot easier if you remove the air filter box so you can get to that nut easily.
Most important - that nut that holds the fan clutch on the water pump shaft is LEFT HANDED THREAD. Turn it clockwise to unscrew it.

Pulling an alternator

Removing the rear-mounted alternator on early 1990s Civics and CRX can be frustrating. After removing the upper adjusting bracket bolt and the lower pivot bolt, the alternator can *almost* come out the top and almost fits behind the intake manifold.

The only easy exit path is out the left wheel well. Side access requires removing the wheel and unfastening three of the plastic retainers holding the upper end of the splash guard. But even this doesn't provide quite enough room. You need to tuck the alternator back under the intake, unbolt the lower alternator bracket (two bolts, 14mm socket) before the alternator can be removed.

The tools needed:

10mm socket -- alternator power connection, battery terminal
12mm wrench -- adjusting bracket
14mm socket -- adjusting bracket, pivot bolt, alternator bracket

Can't get the bolt out of the crankshaft pulley is it reversed thearded

No it's right thearded, comes off counterclock, what you need is a Counter holder, this is a tool that looks like a big socket with a big hole in the center, fits over the outer hole (hex) where the crank bolt sits,it holds the harmonic pulley from turning while removing crank shaft bolt.Autozone rent this tool.

There should be 3 dimples on the door sheet metal by the motor. Drill the holes big enough to get a 5/16th socket in there and take the 3 bolts out and then the motor. Been awhile but i think it is 5/16 socket. Don

Have broken wheel studs need to remove the wheel hub to replace them- how do i do it.

I assume its on the rear ?? If thats the case then there should be a hole just big enough to put a socket wrench through the hub and remove the bolts that attach the hub to the rear axle.

1995 Ford Explorer power window motor removal

You have to drill a hole in the sheet metal after you pull off the door panel. There is a dimple where the hole should be drilled. Make sure the hole you drill is big enough to fit the socket. I don't know why ford deigned it like this.
