You will insert a breaker bar into a 1/2" square hole in the belt tensioner. You will either pull up, or push down, and the tensioner will move enabling you to remove the belt.

Most Ford alternators have an integrated regulator... it's inside the alternator.

Yes!That is the most reasonable approach to alternator replacement on this generation of Taurus / Sable DOHC vehicles. (some months later...)"Reasonable"?? What was I thinking??It's the ONLY way to get it out! (doofus)

No, a Generation 2 (1992-1995) Taurus/Sable Windshield will NOT fit a Generation 3 (1996-1999) Ford Taurus/Sable.

No - the Taurus-Sable was significantly redesigned in 1996.
