SOURCE: I am looking for tips

There is a wegde sleave on the bracket that helps hold the altenator. one of the bolts go thru it. spray some oil on it. you can take a hammer and bar and tap on the backside of the altenator to loosen it up or take a pry bar and pry it out. when prying be careful not to smash/ break anything that might be in the way.

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

Remove alternator on 03 ford escape


2001 ford escape. I have done this three times:

Loosen lugs, and spindle nut on axle. Jack up vehicle. Remove tire. Remove brake caliper, pads, bracket, and rotor, secure caliper away from work area. Pull abs sensor connector from tire well, disconnect connector. Remove abs wire from tire well and brake bracket. Remove tie rod from spindle assembly. Remove pinch bolt form lower ball joint. remove nuts from strut bolts. To remove the spindle: 1. Separate ball joint and pull strut bolts 2. pull bolts and pull off ball joint. the second way may not work SAFELY on some vehicles. The axle is removed by two nuts on the intermediate shaft bearing. Pull out axle. Remove alternator and bracket.

Here is the tricky part: the alternator comes out through the hole where the axle was. I found that jacking the front of the motor up helps and position the alternator pulley up, two bolt holes out, fight it from there, careful not to stick the studs from the axle bearing into the case. May take a LITTLE prying. Once you get it it will just drop

2001 ford escape-passenger door handle assembly has small hole for actuating rod to fit in to open the door from outside.This portion seems to have broken off (white metal-alum ect).Is there a fix for this...


I just ordered the part for the inside of the door from a local ford dealer. It was in Michigan and arrived in three days to Missouri so shipping is fairly fast. The part is around $35.00. The part number is 6L8Z-78223N03-AA. Its the inside door reinforcement bracket and it comes with a new bushing for the actuator rod. I hope this helps.

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.
