Alternator


Inspect/Test/Service/Replace Follow service manual procedures given by the manufacturer for the generator you are working on for disassembling, inspecting, testing, and rebuilding AC generators. Remember, improper connections to an AC generator can destroy it.
AC generator removal varies according to the engine size, engine placement, and vehicle accessories (such as power steering and air conditioning). The following is the typical procedure for removal and replacement of the AC generator.
  • Place fender covers over the fenders
  • Disconnect the battery ground cable

CAUTION
Never attempt to remove the alternator or disconnect any wires to the alternator without first disconnecting the battery negative cable.It's a good practice to wrap the cable with tape or insert the cable inside a rubber hose to prevent accidental contact with the battery terminal.Always wear safety glasses when working around the battery.

  • Disconnect and label the wiring harness connections to the alternator (Painters Masking tape works very well for labeling Automotive wiring).
  • Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
  • Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
  • Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
  • While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
  • Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To reinstall the alternator, reverse the removal procedure.
To adjust the belt tension, leave the pivot and adjusting arms loose. Look up the belt tension specification for the vehicle you are working on. Using a belt tension gauge on the belt apply pressure to the alternator until the correct belt tension registers on the gauge and tighten the mounting and adjustment bolts to the specified torque specification.

CAUTION
Over tightening of the alternator drive belt will cause the unit to whine and premature failure of the alternator drive end bearing, the water pump or the engine crankshaft

How do I remove an altinator from a 2004 ford escape.


Hello there,
To replace the alternator in your car:
Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
All the best. Elect_Comp

  1. Auto inspections of the vehicle may produce results contributing towards restoration. For example, the auto technician makes the evaluation as separate arrangement from which problematic areas are ascertainable. The result findings are documented as diagnostic draft plans from which repair authorizations are achievable. At which point, diagnostic without repair requirements would least requires any further procedures. However, once the vehicles diagnostics produce result requiring expert vehicle repairs, the next sequence of procedures are initiated. First, vehicle repairs require constituent components either permanent parts or depleteable resources constituents prior to workshop initiation plans. Auto technician diagnostic plans would usually contain the damage of the vehicle. A decision to commence restoration of the faults would produce estimate drafts in parts repaired for either replacement acquirable, leasable or alternately. The next sequence includes calculations estimates in resources that would be required contributing towards entire workshop restoration process procedures.

Where can i find a free diagram of where the alternator is located on a 1995 saturn sc1


The location can best be seen by reading the replacement procedures. It is well hidden behind the right front wheel's splash shield. If you plan on replacing it yourself; You'll have the instructions.

Disconnect the negative battery cable...Remove the serpentine drive belt, use a wrench on the tension pulley to remove belt...Raise and support the vehicle...Remove the right front wheel...Remove the right wheel splash shield; it is two parts...Remove the alternator dust shield; it is attached with one bolt and one clip...Remove the two sets of wires from the alternator; one has a clip to connect it to the alternator and one is bolted to the alternator; be very gentle with the bolted one so you do not break the plastic insulator (especially during re-installation)...remove the upper and lower attaching bolts from the alternator; the top boltis easyto get to from the top of the engine, the bolt is just below the power steering unit...remove alternator through the wheel well opening...To re-install follow the steps in reverse.

Alternator removal procedures for a 1994 saturn 4dr


It's fun. You go through the right front wheel well.

Before starting, consider a pressure wash of the areas in question. You'll need an easily movable light source too.

There are two answers to the question in its current wording.

Procedure for pulling the alternator with the intent of replacement:

1, Disconnect Negative battery cable.
2. Remove the serpentine belt.
3, Jack up the right front end.
!!! Use additional jack stands, engage e-brake and make sure the wheels are chocked. You do not want the car to fall while your working on, under or inside it !!!!
4. Remove the right front tire
5. Remove the wheel well splash shield. The splash shield is held on by a dozen or so anchors. Use a small flathead to pop the centers out. They should slide out. You'll get it. Remove the shield.
6. Remove the field and Bat+ wires.
7. Remove the two bolts. The alternator is now loose.
8. Remove the alternator through the wheel well. Don't get frustrated. It really can be done.

Procedure for pulling the alternator as a replacement:
Get a portable sawzall....LOL

Hope this helped
