How to change an altanator on a 2004 kia optima

The KIA Optima uses a 12 volt charging system with an alternating generator and a frame-grounded starting battery. The alternator is a smaller unit with an internal voltage regulator. The bushings, windings and regulator may wear out and fail, requiring replacement. The average backyard mechanic can change the alternator in a KIA in about an hour.
Things You'll Need
1.Socket set
2.Floor jack
3.Lug wrench
1.Disconnect the battery's positive terminal bolt by turning it counterclockwise. Set it away from the terminal.
2.Jack up the Optima and remove the front passenger side wheel by turning the lug nuts counterclockwise using the lug wrench. Set the wheel and tire aside.
3.Remove or fold aside the wheel well cover by turning the small screws counterclockwise and gently pulling it from the retainer clips. This will give access to the engine.
4.Push on the belt tension pulley until the belt loosens, then pull the belt off of the alternator's pulley wheel. The belt can be left hanging in place.
5.Turn the alternator's bolts in a counterclockwise direction using the socket wrench. A smaller wrench head may be required for the tight space.
6.Pull the alternator free by wiggling it out of the mount.
7.Position the new alternator into the mount and secure the bolts that hold it in place.
8.Push on the belt tension pulley to give enough slack to wrap the belt around the alternator's pulley wheel.
9.Restore the wheel well cover by pushing it onto the clips and securing the screws.
10.Replace the wheel by tightening the lug nuts in a clockwise direction, alternating the pressure of opposing bolts. This sets the wheel better than tightening all of the nuts in a circle.
11.Lower the Optima onto the ground, and reconnect the battery.

    How to replace the alternator on a 2003 Mazda MPV

    Disconnect the battery at the positive terminal by turning the bolt counterclockwise. Disconnect the alternator's terminal by turning the nut counterclockwise and removing the loop from the terminal bolt. Store these connectors away from the battery.

    Remove the belt by pressing on the tension pulley arm firmly, then sliding the belt form underneath the idle pulley wheel. Release the tension pulley and the belt will slacken; it can then be removed from the alternator pulley wheel.

    Remove the alternator by turning the mount bolts counterclockwise, then sliding them out of the mount arms. Some models may have mount bolt heads that must be held in place with a wrench while turning the nut. With the mounts free, the alternator can be exchanged for a new unit. Position the new alternator into the mount arms and slide the mount bolts into place, locking them down with the nuts turned clockwise.

    Wrap the drive belt around the alternator pulley wheel (groove side down), then press the tension pulley arm and slide the belt back under the idle pulley wheel. Release the tension arm and the belt will automatically adjust to the proper tension.

    Reconnect the alternator's terminal loop by placing it over the bolt and turning the nut clockwise. Connect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt clockwise.

    98 dodge caravan alternator how to change

    remove the negative battery cable from the battery. loosen the serpentine belt by using an open-end box wrench and pull the tension pulley back (it's spring loaded, so be careful) by the bolt, remove the belt from the alternator and the tension pulley, then slowly let the tension pulley loose. remove the nuts holding the wires on to the alternator. remove the bolts from the alternator mount, and remove the alternator. put the new one on and hand tighten all of the bolts. then tighten them down with a wrench. put the belt back on the alternator pulley and make sure it's on all of the other pulleys and wheels except the tension. use the wrench again and pull the pulley towards you with your right hand and put the belt under the pulley with your left, and let the pulley go back. reconnect the wires to the alternator and then the battery. **warning** make sure that the battery is fully charged before you start the car with the new alternator, or you'll cause "alternator death" and void your warranty.

    How do you change the alt.

    1) Disconnect negative battery cable. Jack up right front of car. Be sure to protect yourself with jackstands and rear wheel chocks. Safety first!
    2) Remove the engine undercover (plastic under engine protector) on the right side
    3) Remove the right front wheel.
    4) Remove the right hand side inspection cover inside the wheel well. (I did not say this was a simple job.)
    4a) Optional: Curse Nissan engineers for lack of foresight in maintenance.
    5) Loosen the belt idler pulley (center of the pulley itself, I think its 14mm, but Do NOT loosend the bracket bolt)
    6) Loosen the idler pulley tension (large, vertical nut above the idler pulley)
    7) Remove the belt.
    8) Replace with new belt.

    Install is opposite of removal. You may have to wiggle a bit to slip it on correctly, but be patient, it will go
    To replace alternator:

    9) Get your **** under the car, fully supported on jackstands, and remove the 4 Air conditioner bolts
    10)Slide the A/C compressor forward (don't drop it on your head!)
    11) Disconnect the alternator harness connector (This may be tricky to do while mounted. If so, then with the help of a friend, remove the alternator following the steps below and remove the connection after the alternator is loose. DO NOT let the alternator hang by the wiring harness connections.)
    12) Remove the wiring harness bracket from the alternator.
    13) Remove the alternator upper and lower bolts. Slide Alternator down and forward to remove.
    14) Install is opposite of removal.
    Good Luck!

    Noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner

    I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. do I fix it??????
