dont know the fix, but the lights on my 2000 cougar do the same thing...
If by "housing" you mean the alternator itself, yes, it is actually rather easy. See "Related Questions" below for detailed alternator replacement information
depending on options it is usually 90A. It is stamped on alternator housing.
the thermostat is behind the alternator! gotta remove the alternator and most of the plugs around it to get to the bolts on the thermostat housing
Which ranger do you have because normally you take the air housing off then the serpentine belt then the mounting bolts on the alternator then remove the electric connection. If your trying to locate the alternator it's on the left side of the engine above the tensioner
on the 4.2 engine its behind the alternator, right by the thermostat housing, you have to remove the alternator to get better access.

The thermostat housing on a 1997 Fiesta Zetec is under the alternator. It is inside the upper radiator hose, where the hose connects to the water pump.
below the alternator
Where the lower radiator hose is attached the the engine, aprox behind the alternator. It requires removal of the alternator to gain better access to the thermostat housing.
Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. It is between the ac and alternator.Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. It is between the ac and alternator.

It is located down behind the alternator. The thermostat comes with the the housing attached to it for about $25.00
A typical alternator uses permanent magnets mouted on the rotor. Their movement excites the stator of wound coils in the housing. The resulting AC current is rectified and controlled by diodes and a voltage regulator, also typically mounted inside the housing.
Remove your air cleaner housing, left front tire. unplug and unbolt your alternator and remove it up throw the air cleaner area.
It depends on the year of the vehicle. For a 93-98, the alternator that comes standard on the vehicle is a 90 amp. A 1999-on model typically has a 136 amp alternator. This alternator can be identified by its 6-groove serpentine pulley, and the black plastic housing cover on the rear of the alternator will normally have a "136" stamped on it. An optional 90 amp alternator was used on some 1999-on models, but the 90 amp unit has a double V-belt style pulley rather than a 6-groove serpentine pulley.
Hello. I just replace the alternator on our 2001 Focus with 70K on the odometer. The job took about an hour. However, before you replace yours, check the continuity through the electrical plug connection at the alternator. This is a weak point of the Focus and can cause the alternator to not charge the battery properly. If the plug checks good, you must replace the entire alternator (as of 12-20-06, the part costs about $165 for a rebuilt unit in South Carolina). Here are the steps: Remove the positive battery cable. Unplug the wires from the alternator and slide them from the plastic support bracket. Connect a short extension onto a 3/8" ratchet and slide the end of the extension into the square hole on the belt tensioner. Rotate the ratchet handle so as to remove the tension from the belt. Slip the belt from the alternator only. Remove the two bolts from the front of the alternator and one nut from the underside of the alternator. Hint- To ease removal of the alternator, remove the electric fan housing from its mount by pushing on the two top tabs with your fingers. Lift up on the fan housing and slide it out of its lower supports. The housing can then be moved several inches out of the way to allow the alternator to be easily removed. Install the new alternator in the reverse order.
On most cars, the upper alternator-mount usually has an elongated hole or slot with a bolt that goes thru it and the alternator-housing. To loosen/tighten the alternator-belt, just loosen this bolt a little and the top of the alternator can then be swiveled to alter tension on the belt ...when the belt is tight enough (you can only move it 1/4" when pushing at a point that's equal distance between 2 of the pulleys, hold it in that position and tighten the bolt. Sometimes if alternator is difficult to move, it can be pried (and held in position) with wood-handle of a hammer (or other non-metallic item) placed between alternator and the mount.
Behind the alternator, next to the thermostat housing.
For the 2.7l engine, the thermostat housing is all one piece. The housing is located under the alternator and attached to the engine block.
Engine number is underneath the distributor on front housing on the rough casting. If that fails check underneath the alternator on front housing.
This will be difficult. You must remove the alternator to get to the themostat housing. While you are there, you may want to replace the Temp sensor too!
The thermostat is located on the lower front drivers side of the engine, behind the alternator. It is best accessed from under the front of the vehicle with the alternator removed.
The thermostat is behind the alternator. You will likely need to remove the alternator to get the thermostat out. Boosted96GSX's Response: It is near the alternator which is located on the passenger side of the car, no the alternator does not need to be removed. It is held onto the block by a plastic housing and 2 10mm bolts. Remove the coolant hose and then remove the the housing bolts, swap thermostats out and replace O-ring. Then reinstall. Make sure to have bought VW G12 coolant. You will spill coolant while changing this so be prepared with a pan or something to catch the coolant.
The thermostat in a 1.8L Matrix or Vibe is behind the Alternator. The alternator must be removed to see the Thermostat housing. The T'sat housing is removed by removing the two bolts. Be sure to note how the old t'stat in oriented so the new one can be placed in the same way.
Next to the thermostat housing, under and behind the alternator.
