There is a wegde sleave on the bracket that helps hold the altenator. one of the bolts go thru it. spray some oil on it. you can take a hammer and bar and tap on the backside of the altenator to loosen it up or take a pry bar and pry it out. when prying be careful not to smash/ break anything that might be in the way.

Location of the bank 1 sensor 2 O2 sensor on a 2001 ford escape


B1 means the sensor is located on the same bank of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. B2 is located on the opposite bank.
S1 means the sensor is located BEFORE the catalytic converter
S2 means the sensor is located AFTER the catalytic converter

You didn't say which engine you have, so I've included the diagrams of both 4 cyl and 6 cyl so you can see the banks

Replacing Alternator on 2001 Ford Escape, V6 Engine


there should be 2 bolts that hold it in place maybe 3 but you need to loosen the top one and loosen the bottom one to allow slack in the belt.you take the old belt off and put the hew one on and then u need a prybar to put pressure against the new alternator to take the slack out of the belt and tighten the bolts up at the same time. on the back of the alternator you will find 2 screws that have to be taken loose and put back the same way on the new alternator. make sure u take the pos battery cable loose from the battery before u begin
