I JUST REPLACED MY ALTERNATOR YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE PASSENGER SIDE TIRE OFF AS WELL AS THE TIE ROD END. THERE ARE 2 BOLTS ONE ON TOP THAT YOU WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE TO SIT ON THE ENGINE TO GET TO WHICH MY BOYFRIEND FOUND HELPFUL. THE OTHER ONE IS EASIER TO GET TO FROM THE BOTTOM YOU WILL NEED A SOCKET WRENCH AND 2 SOCKETS A 10 AND A 13 I THINK.

It fill like the transmission on my 2000 ford countour is sliping. is their any way i can adjust it


Sorry, but you'll probably have to take it to a good trans shop. I assume yours is an automatic - if you don't have the special tools and knowledge to deal with these things, don't mess with the innards!

Cant remove the alternator


There is a trick to this. Put a jack under the front of the sub-frame. Then remove the two front sub-frame bolts. Then let the front of the sub-frame down until you get just enough room to pull the alternator over the top of the intake.

How do t replace the alt. in a 2000 olds silhouette


Remove the two front motor mounts mounted on the frame above the radiator.This is not a weight bearing mount it is for vibration. The engine will not move much once removed. Ratchet the motor forward using a ratcheting strap hooked to the black arm that extends above the motor located on the right side. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the two mounting bolts on the face of the alternator and the one behind the alternator. Remove the connections and alternator. To reinstall, reverse the process. You will not have enough clearance to remove the alternator without ratcheting the motor forward.

Ford focus 2000 alternator and belt removal and fit


Just took one out last night. It also was stuck. Had to use small pry bar to get off the front mount. Sprayed the mount with PB blast to help. You do have to use some force, becareful not to break any electrical connections. Once the front mount was free, I had to pry up on it using a small hatchet. Only thing that would fit and actually be able to pry. The alternator became twisted from prying only on one side, so I used a block of wood and tapped it back straight. It finally released from the mounts and came loose. Then the fun begins in trying to actually get it out. Had to disconnect everything around it, took two people and alot of twisting and turning. Not looking forward to getting it back in. Removal took over 2 hours.
