Best Answer

Most alternators have the following connections: - drive belt from the engine - pivot bolt on the bottom - tensioning bolt(s) on the top - electrical connections Disconnect the battery Remove the drive belt from the pulley on the front of the alternator Loosen the top bolts but do not remove Disconnect the electrical connections to the alternator Disconnect the pivot bolt and slide it out Remove the top bolts and work the alternator loose from the bushings on the bottom Remove alternator from the car The replacement alternator will usually not have a pulley on it, so remove it from the old and install it on the new (impact wrench) The new alternator may not be clocked the same as the old. Take it back to the store and have them clock it to match the old one The only difficulty going back in is the bushings on the bottom may not be far enough apart to permit insertion of the new alternator bottom bracket. I used a C-clamp and a short section of pipe (about 1") to retract the bushing far enough to get it to go in. A socket wrench socket could also be used to press out the bushing just far enough to get the bracket to slide in. This all takes about 1-2 hours if you have the right tools and longer if not.
