Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!
Loosen the belts, unbolt the old alternator, bolt the new one on, tighten the belts back up.
It is on the rear lower of the belt side of the engine. You can find the alternator in the back by the firewall on the passenger side of the car. It is best to put the car up on ramps since it is not reachable from the top. You can follow the belts and one of the belts will lead to the back that is attached to the alternator.
I can't really say for sure about a '98, but I have a 99, and you just loosen the bolts on the alternator, move it forward, and switch old and new belts. Push the alternator back (with a rod) and retighten the bolts.
Begin by removing the alternator belt. Remove the wiring harness from the back of your alternator. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new Cadillac alternator.
Should be located in the back of the alternator
To change the alternator drive belt on a Bobcat 853 you start by lifting the cab. With the cab up, you can see the back of the engine and alternator. Locate the belts spring tensioner and release the belt.
The VR is on the back of the alternator.
# Notice which pulleys the alternator belt rides on. # Remove the alternator's adjustment bolt. # Remove the alternator's pivot bolt. # Remove the alternator. # Before you can put on the new belt, you probably will have to remove someother belts which means loosening other adjustment and pivot bolts. # Place the new alternator belt on the pulleys you took note of earlier. # Put the alternator back on. # Making sure to tighten all the bolts you loosened earlier. All belts should only deflect 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Longer belts deflect more than shorter belts.
Does your car have one belt? Or does it have 2 belts? if it has one belt..............it's called a serpentine belt and you need to find the idler pulley and insert a 3/8 inch ratchet in the hole and take the tension off the belt, slide the belt off the pulley and then replace the alternator. With serpentine belts, you do not adjust the slack on the belt using the alternator, the idler pulley adjust the slack on the belt and keeps tension on it. If you have 2 belts then you may have an adjustable alternator but most cars this new have one belt. If you have 2, check back with your question updated.
No ! It has to be registered as passenger, and have windows in rear doors and on side plus it MUST HAVE a permanent provision for a seat in the back, including seat belts. Seat does not have to be actually in the van, but provisions ( seat bracket and belts anchors ) must be permanent.
two. one around the crank pully, idle, ac and alternator and one in the back on the crank pully, and others for the engine
Okay, first loosen the tensioning unit on the ac compresser. Afterwards, take of the alternator, this is not the proper, but the orthodox way is way to much of a pain, then you will have the belts lose, put your new belts on, tighten the tensioner, To put on the alternator, use a crowbar after putting the center bolt, pull back to bring back tension to the serpentine belt, tighten the bolt, and then you can start the car, the serpentine has an automatic tensioner pulley, as long as the belt has at least a suffecient amount of tension, the autotensioner will take of the exact tension require to sustain the belt
git part...open hood.....disconect battery.........loosen bolt on back of alt..........loosen bolt holding tenson on alt ...........slide to loosen belts. should have 2 mine dose.......take wires off back of alt noticeing whare they go...........finish un bolting and remove..........reverse order to install new alt........use crow bar to git tension on belts..........is a easy job... have fun .........helli
You must remove both drive belts the one that connects to the power steering and the one to the alternator. the alternator has three bolts - one long one pointing towards the back of the car - one of the left side of the alternator - and one on the right side towards the bottom of the alternator (youll have to get underneath the car to get to it) unsrew all of them and it should drop
smog pump did this about 2 months ago on my van
from the back of the alternator to the dash to the battery
There's a tensioner (screw) located underneath the alternator. Loosen the alternator bracket screw, then feel underneath the alternator to locate the tensioner screw. It's several inches long. That's about the most half assed answer ever. There is way more involved due to the fact that the alternator belt is on the the first pulley off the cam. You have to unhook the two belts in front of it to get it on. Then you have to put the a/c belt and timing belt back on.
Look at the front of the bracket underneath of you alternator, you will see a bolt that connects to the back of the pulley below the alternator itself. That will dial in/out your alternator and then you can tighten down the nut that holds the pulley in place. WHile it is true the tensioner is located on the top of the alternator with a dial type ratchet system, I have not had an 89-90 Jetta where this works. Usually you have to tension it with a bar of some sort prying against another pce of the engine.
I just replaced mine yesterday. take off the air cleaner to gain access to the belt adjustment which has a nut that pulls the alternator to tighten and loosten the belt. Then from under the car there is a bolt that goes thru the bottom of the alternator. This bolt must be loostened to allow the alternator to pivot. Then loosten the top adjusting nut described and push on the alternator and it will pivot free, then remove belt and have someone on top while you hook the new belt back in place. Tighten top adjuster, the book says .3- .4 in of slack while pushing on the belt firmly. Then retighten bottom bolt.
