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

Hope this helped

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.

How do you remove the door panels, to get to the window motors on the 2000 saturn, 4dr model. Is there a hidden screw somewhere that I can't see?

If I remember correctly it is the outer door skin that comes off not the inner panel. I think it unscrews.

On the top of the engine there should be a silver looking plate with a electrical connector on the driver side. Remove the connector, remove the 4 10mm bolts, gently pull up and wiggle at the same time, there are boots that connect to the top of the spark-plugs. put the boots on the plate when you put it back together. This procedure applies to the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine

I have a 1994 4dr saturn and the rear drivers door will not open from the child lock being on how do i disengae it while the door is shut?

It'll be really hard to disengage it with the door shut as it's not designed that way. So I guess you aren't able to open the door from the outside at all. You'll have to take a jimmy and slide it into the window well to see if you can pop it from there

I need to figure out how to change the belt on a 1994 Mazda Protege alternator

GO HERE. It shows the procedure for changing out the complete alternator, but the belt procedure is in there also. You don't have to remove all the stuff mentioned in the instructions. Just loosen the alternator bolts, disconnect the electrical connector and remove and replace the belt. No big deal. Good luck.
