I just changed the alternator on a 1997 Transport. The mounting bracket for the alternator must be removed -- 3 bolts on the side, and 1 at the back that you cannot see. You almost remove the battery, fuse box, and windshield water container. You will be able to work it out when all this is removed.

Trying to change a bad alternator that is on the bottom

must be a v-6?

You will need to remove the drive axle on the passenger side in order to get enough room to pull the alternator out. Its not to bad to do.

Separate the lower ball joint from the passenger front knuckle.

remove the axle nut and push the axle out of the hub.

remove the two bolts that hold the carrier bearing on the drive axle to the support bracket.

You will then be able to remove the entire axle from the vehicle. Have a drip pan ready to catch any trans fluid that may come out of the opening the axle goes into on the transmission.

Once the axle is out of the way you can remove the three bolts that hold the alternator in place. the top one only needs to be loose as the hole in the alt should be sloted. Unplug the connector and remove the battery cable from the alt. It will be a rubix cube but there will be a position that the alt will need to be in that will allow the alt drop come out of the opening left by the removal of the drive axle.

Electrical short or loose connection

did this problem start after the new alternator or is this the reason you replaced the alternator? sounds like a loose wire on the alternator or the battery post. make sure the battery terminals are clean from corrosion. if there is a hot spot on the wires or connectors that is a good sign that is a loose connection.

My 1994 nissan, the alt/oil light, battery light keep flickering.

It could possibility be bad or loose connection on the alternator or battery wiring, or a loose alternator belt. All those lights come on when the battery isn't getting a charge, so the alternator is where I'd start looking.

I need to replace my alternator

You need to first take off youre serptine belt. Inspect that and generally its a good idea to replace. Next there is a electrical connection on the alternator. DISCONNECT the battery FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then disconnect the connection on the alternator, there are a couple of bolts that attach the alternator to the engine. and then simply bolt on the new one, re-attach the electrical connection and then re-install the (new) belt.

Bad alternator

Disconnect the negative clamp on the battery. Remove the bolt on the adjustment arm (the one with the slot) of the alternator. Loosen the pivot bolt at the bottom of the Alt. Swing the alt inward to loosen the belt. Take the belt of the pulley. Take off the wires noting where they attach. Remove the pivot bolt. You should be able to take the alt off now. Reverse the sequence but when adjusting the belt tension pry the side of the alternator with a bar so the belt can only be deflected about three quarters of an inch. Tighten the adjustment bolt. Don't over tighten the belt. It'll prematurely wear your bearings. Don't under tighten. It'll squeal.
