    Many will only come out the bottom, this is common in front wheel drive cars with small engine bays.

Make sure that the wires are removed, belt is removed, and the top and bottom bolts are completely out of the holes. If all of that is done the alternator is just jammed in the recepticle. Take a large screwdriver or small/ medium prybar and place between the alternator and brackets and pull. it may be tough but it will come out. Good luck and i hope i was of some assistance. Please leave feedback if i was able to help.

Thank you for your question!

Have you tested the output of the alternator under a load? Have that done because this sure sounds like a charging system issue. Most parts stores like Autozone will test the battery and Alternator for free.

Replacing a altenator


Disconnect the battery, unbolt the alternator, remove the wires and write down or draw yourself a picture so you can put them back where you got them. Some need to be twisted and turned a bit to get them out. Replacing is the reverse of removal. It sometimes helps to partially un-bolt the brackets from the engine so you have a bit of room to get it back in.
My rule: If it's in your way, remove it (that can often save hours of extra work)

Install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander


I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

How do I remove alternator on a 2002 suburban


Disconnect neg battery cable, then unplug wire harness on altenator. Then remove bolts to remove. When putting back on, put altenator on first, then belt. There will be a tensioner pulley that you can pry down or pull up with breaker bar and socket to get belt back on. Try to keep belt in place as much as possible with altenator out so you won't loose track of the routing.

You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual with everything you could need for this car.
