Question about 2002 Ford Escape
Unless you're an experienced mechanic I would suggest taking it to the shop since this is a pretty tough vehicle to replace an alternator on. But if you still want to do it yourself here are the steps:
Disconnect the battery cables.
Remove the right intermediate axle shaft.
Remove the right lower splash shield screws and the pin-type retainer.
Rotate the accessory drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the accessory drive belt.
Remove the nut and position the bracket and wiring harness aside.
Remove the upper generator mounting bolts.
Remove the lower generator bolts and position the generator aside.
Remove the generator mounting bracket bolts and remove the bracket.
Remove the generator electrical connectors.
Remove the B+ nut and cable.
Remove the connector.
Rotate the generator to gain clearance, and remove through the opening in the fender well.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
