    Lift the front end of the car, using the jack, and place it on jack stands. Refer to your owner's manual for a placement diagram--they are in an unusual location for the 2001 Dodge Intrepid.

  • 3

    Remove the plastic splash guard from the underside of the engine. It is held in place by several bolts.

  • 4

    Unbolt the transmission cooler, then move it out of the way. Don't remove the hoses--just the bolts.

    Remove the brace that holds up the radiator. Use a jack stand to hold up the radiator.

  • 6

    Loosen the adjustment T-bolt and pivot bolt on the alternator, but don't remove them. Remove the belt.

    Unscrew the nut that holds the battery cable to the alternator, then remove the cable. Unplug the other electrical connector, as well.

  • 8

    Unbolt and remove the alternator.

    Replace the alternator. The steps are the reverse of the removal procedure. Torque the nut on the battery cable to 90 in-lb. Torque the mounting and pivot bolts to 40 ft. lb.

    2001 Dodge Intrepid- What does P0622= Generator F-term. Field F control, and P0403= EGR flow circuit malfuntion mean? Thank you

    If you've replaced those parts according to the codes, you need to have the codes cleared from the computer, otherwise the car will think you still have the bad parts on, and stay in what they call Limp Mode! Sometimes you can take it to an Autozone, and they can clear it for you! Otherwise you need to have a shop clear those computer codes for you!

    Replacing alternator in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid

    the easiest way is going to first be to remove the serpentine belt which requires you to loosen the nut on the end of the idler pulley just above the alternator, then behind the pulley is a bolt with a 13mm head on it that you will want to loosen after the pulley is loose to relieve tension off the belt. Remove the belt. Next make sure you remove the battery cables to ensure you dont fry yourself to the car when unhooking the electrical connections from the alternator, your battery is located on the passenger side, down behind and underneath the headlight. Then go under the car and remove the black plastic clips that hold the splash shield up under the bumper. After this the alternator becomes as accesible as it can be, remove it from the bottom. Thanks for using fixya!!
