What's your problem?1995 gmc safari alternator replacement. Need some kind of diagramed overview of the alternator and how it connects, what it looks like, how to do it basically


Hello! First see Serpentine Belt configuration diagram below... Alternator is part "C"...

If you have a voltmeter...read across the battery with engine off...Record...Start engine read again...Voltage must be 1.8 -2 volts higher; This means Alternator is working...

To Remove:disconnect (-) battery cable...Air Inlet Duct...Serpentine Belt (idler pulley maintains tension)...Heater hose brace...Wiring from Alternator...Mounting bolts...Remove alternator...

To Install: Install Alternator loosely...Tighten Rear Bolt to 37 ft. lbs...Front bolt to 18ft. lbsTighten Brace to Intake to 18ft lbs....Connect wiring...Install belt...Adjust Idler Pulley so belt moves less than 3/4" when tight...Connect (-) battery cable....Re-test as noted above...Guru...........Saaile

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

Need to replace alternator


Here's a link to the alternator diagram:

http://www.chiltonlibrary.com/content/images/0601/images/06017-FREE-g02.gif

Instructions:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Rotate the drive belt tensioner counterclockwise and remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the right lower splash shield.
  5. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness locators from the alternator splash shield.
  7. Detach the alternator wiring connector.
  8. Remove the positive cable nut.
  9. Remove the alternator splash shield and the alternator.
Here's a link to a website to put the serpentine back on, just insert the year,make,model, and engine size to get the "Routing Diagram" for your car.

88 ford thunderbird the alternator shorted to the case and smokechecked. replaced the alternator, alternator works but is not doing its job, car runs off of the battery alone. need a wiring...


Had the same problem. Likely the fusible links. Get a Haynes manual with wiring diagram in the back (should be around $15 or so at an auto parts store). I also had to replace the air intake duct and several components of the thermactor air system. One other thought is that the new alternator is not putting out a charge, you might want to check that if you believe everything else is okay. I once replaced an alternator and the new alternator was defective. --Mark http://www.marksatterfield.com
