First thing is to locate tension pulley and put a box end wrench on the bolt in the center of this pulley, by moving the pulley up or down you can slip the belt off enough to relieve the tension. then disconnect the battery, the alternator has three bolts that hold it on the mount, remove those and then remove the two plugs and one wire that is held in place with a nut. take not the plastic connectors on the two wires. The new alternator is put on in a reverse manner.

Alternator ford aerostar

To remove the lead from the battery to the alternator while it is running is to invite a destroyed alternator . Varying voltages with engine RPM is indicative of a bad battery or problem alternator regulator . Have a load test done on the battery to check for cell problems and have the alternator bench tested to check the performance .

Where is the spare tire located on a 1995 ford aerostar?

Section 00-02: Lifting, Jacking and Spare Tire Stowage 1995 Aerostar, Ranger, Explorer Workshop Manual
TIRE STOWAGE Tire, Spare, Removal, Aerostar If the Aerostar is a standard length vehicle the spare tire is mounted inside to a carrier at the left rear quarter panel. To remove the spare tire, remove the wing nut and plate. A flat tire can be temporarily stowed in the same location.

If the Aerostar is the bus with a standard length body or extended length (all models), the temporary spare tire is stowed at the rear of the vehicle under the body. The Aerostar standard length E-4WD bus spare tire is mounted on the floor.
  1. Insert lug nut wrench into the actuator hole and turn counterclockwise until the cable extends to allow the spare tire to be pulled rearward from under the vehicle.
  1. Slide spare tire to the rear and remove the retainer from the wheel.
  1. To stow cable/retainer with spare tire removed, insert cable fitting into carrier rear wall slot, place wheel retainer against the carrier, and turn lug nut wrench clockwise until slack is removed.

My amp light came on and twice it has not wanted to start. I removed and cleaned terminals on 1995 ford aerostar. now it will not start? Oct and 9 are punched on top of battery does that mean 1999? How do...

If your amp light was on before it died I would say it is your alternator. Recharge the battery. Then it should start. Then have the alternator checked.
