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.

As often as the alternator fails... ;)The alternator is not a 'consumable' type of part that requires routine maintenance/replacement - like a serpentine belt, brake pads, etc.Many repair shops and auto parts stores offer inexpensive or free alternator & battery testing.Be sure to test before replacing!NOTE: it is a little known fact that a weak or failing battery is a major contributor to premature alternator death. Any battery that is 4 years old is a prime candidate for replacement.See "Related Questions" below for information on how-to replace Taurus / Sable alternators

Without a year and engine size, there's no way to be definitive with an answer. If the car is newer, say post 1993 or so, it's likely to have a serpentine belt - one belt that drives the accessory devices like water pump, alternator & power steering. If it's older and has a dedicated belt, the basic idea is to loosen the alternator PIVOT bolt and pry the alternator outwards against the belt - tighten the pivot bolt to lock it in.
