1998 Isuzu trooper 3.5 alternator replace


step one remove battery neg lug .
the above video (of book?) is wrong.
the belt tension-ing step was skipped.

remove belt steps remove alt. wiring. remove alternator (bolts) it falls free. replace it , reverse steps above belt back tension belt. battery cable back. test run. charge/BAT lamp off?
see wrench below, turn it CW.
this releases the spring tension and belt comes off
to put back, do same and put on belt and release wrench.

Trying to remove alternator belt to get the alternator out


It looks like you have one belt for all accessories. There should be a belt tensioner that keeps the belt tight. You move the tensioner to release tension on the belt, then remove the belt from the alternator pulley.

Alternator Replacement


You may have a self tensioner which applies belt tension with a spring.

Look for a spot to put a 1/'2"drive breaker bar on it and release the belt tension, then slide the belt off and install new belt. You may need a helper to remove the belt while you hold the tension off,
Its been awhile since I have seen an Escort, i may be wrong!
