Question about 1994 Saturn Sl
How do i get the alternator out of a 1994 saturn
It's fun. You go through the right front wheel well.
Before starting, consider a pressure wash of the areas in question. You'll need an easily movable light source too.
There are two answers to the question in its current wording.
Procedure for pulling the alternator with the intent of replacement:
1, Disconnect Negative battery cable.
2. Remove the serpentine belt.
3, Jack up the right front end.
!!! Use additional jack stands, engage e-brake and make sure the wheels are chocked. You do not want the car to fall while your working on, under or inside it !!!!
4. Remove the right front tire
5. Remove the wheel well splash shield. The splash shield is held on by a dozen or so anchors. Use a small flathead to pop the centers out. They should slide out. You'll get it. Remove the shield.
6. Remove the field and Bat+ wires.
7. Remove the two bolts. The alternator is now loose.
8. Remove the alternator through the wheel well. Don't get frustrated. It really can be done.
Procedure for pulling the alternator as a replacement:
Get a portable sawzall....LOL

I might add, the factory charge connector nut was so tight, it broke the post off inside, Also, I did the extra work of removing the steering pump and bracket just to have more room to get the factory alt. shroud off. Reaching the 10mm bolts for the steering pump is gained through the pump pulley slots and then the bracket is 2 more bolts. Lifting the pump up and back makes more access room. Remember to relpace the longer bolts where they came from and that pump removal is only needed if you can't get the shroud off.
The original alt.had 177,000 miles on it, that's really amazing.
