SOURCE: ford focus 2000 alternator and belt removal and fit

Just took one out last night. It also was stuck. Had to use small pry bar to get off the front mount. Sprayed the mount with PB blast to help. You do have to use some force, becareful not to break any electrical connections. Once the front mount was free, I had to pry up on it using a small hatchet. Only thing that would fit and actually be able to pry. The alternator became twisted from prying only on one side, so I used a block of wood and tapped it back straight. It finally released from the mounts and came loose. Then the fun begins in trying to actually get it out. Had to disconnect everything around it, took two people and alot of twisting and turning. Not looking forward to getting it back in. Removal took over 2 hours.

SOURCE: is it hard to change an alternator on a ford focus

Hello, This job is alot harder on your car than most that's for sure. It really depends on your mechanical ability and time vs the amount your willing to pay someone else. This job is easy if your not afraid to loosen the passenger motor mount and slid the engine forward about an inch with a pry bar. (Which sounds alot harder than it is) But the Hanes manual lists alot of things to do to get around the motor mount.

Per Haynes Manual.
Place Coolant Expansion Tank to one side.
Lift out Power Steering Reservoir and put to one side.
Remove DriveBelt.
Unscrew Wiring Loom bolt and move wiring to one side.
Remove Ground Cable from Strut Tower.
Bent the ground bracket down as much as possible.
Move Canister Purge Valve to one side.
Remove Plastic Cover from Alternator.
Unscrew and the alternator mounting bolt nearest the engine first.
Unscrew the other retaining bolt until it has fully disengaged from the bracket (not possible to remove bolt from alternator at this stage).
Lift the alternator out, Pulley side facing upwards.
Take care not to damage or you might screw your surrounding components!

I would say if you dont work on cars or have mechanical ability you should prob take it to a profesional. I hope my answer helped more than it scared you....lol....Have a great weekend and please rate my answer if you felt it was helpful

two options just pull them straight up or they make a special tool that you can buy to do this. if you are going to replace plugs you should go ahead and do the wires at the same time.

Disconnect battery at negative terminal.

Remove all electrical connections by unscrewing or unfastening electrical wires.

Remove all bolts that hold the starter on after loosening the belt.

Get the replacement starter and installation is a reverse of the removal.,

I am trying to locate the alernator in in car so i can get the number of it where would it be


Going by the main heading, for a Ford Focus made in 2000.

Ford offered two different engines for the 2000 Focus. However, the alternator will either be on the upper left, or upper right. (Some models of cars have the alternator on the bottom left, or bottom right. Don't you feel lucky?)
You will see a wiring harness going to it. The outside housing has small rectangular holes in it. They go around the front and rear sides of this housing.

This is an example of an alternator for the 2000 Ford Focus, with the Inline 4 cylinder, 2.0 Liter engine,

You unbolt the alternator. Unclip the fans from the rad. Let the fans drop down without unbolting anything. Pull the alt out from the top. Its that easy.... Install is opposite.
