Im trying to change the altinator in my 2003 silverado v-6. i took the two bolts out the electric componets and still cant get it loose.

Hi: !st Thing you need to do is disconnect your negative battery cable to prevent more damage.If i'm understanding you Right you Took the Wiring off the Alternator.Or did you Remove the Mounting Bolts? Here Goes Disconnect Battery, Loosen the Bolt on the Alternator Adjuster Bracket, This will give you Some Slack in the Belt ,BUT Locate the Belt Tensioner take a Breaker Bar or The Correct Size Boxed in Wrench or use a Ratchet and Socket. The Tension Is Spring Loaded to Keep Your Belt From Coming OFF. Your Belt Runs Probally Everything like your Alternator ,Water Pump,A/C Compressor,Power Steering So On. So Until you Take the Belt Either OFF or Just Release the Tension on the Belt,I'm Sure if you Have Removed All mounting Bolts and Your Wires to The Alternator, Your Alternator Will Come on Out with a Little Light Effert. Be Sure You Watch How Eveything Comes Off Cause You'll Have To Reverse the Way you Took It Off To Put it Back Together. Be Sure You Look At the Belt Routing Diagram Which is on either your Cross bar By The Radiator. Its Say Belt Routing Diagram. Hope This Gets you Going It Should.If You Follow These Instructions.

Need to replace passenger airbag on 1999 pontiac grand prix

my dad and i had this problem. sister hit a deer last week.

this is an annoying thing to replace. what we did is tried to remove pretty much the whole dash, and then we shimmied it out.

got the new bag in, put dash back together, and found out we had to put the cover on first. so we have to take it all off again just to get the cover back on.

Very poor brake performance after changing rear shoes

It sounds like your self-adjusters are not assembled correctly allowing them to back off when braking.

We need to replace the alternator, 96 Grand Cherokee, Lorado,

1.Make sure the battery is disconnected while working there. @. Make sure that all electrical terminals are clean (on alt & battery) before putting back together. 3. use anti-seize compound or some good lithium grease on fasteners on re-assembly. It helps to keep them from freezing into aluminium and makes removal easier in the future. You may have to remove some other stuff to get the alt out, but it shouldn't bee too difficult. Make sure you either have a belt routing diagram, or make your own before you take it apart.
Good Luck

Serpentine belt

When you open the hood there is a diagram on a sticker that shows exactly how to do this. Should be on the front lip or the side of the engine compartment. You have to make sure you get it lined back up right and remember to check it once the engine has been started and make sure it running on all the pulleys correctly.

Here is a good diagram that should be able to help in case your sticker was damaged or removed. Good luck!
