That's the bad part, you have to remove the engine to get the alt. out, everything around it is too close to it.

Actually, you don't have to remove the engine, but it must be raised. Place a jack under the oil pan, preferably with a block of wood to protect the pan. Put slight pressure on pan. Remove the engine mount bolt on the passenger side of engine. Lift engine about an inch with jack. Remove alternator from underneath car. You may also have to remove the plastic splash guard under the car on some applications

Loosen the tensioner bolt on your 1997 Kia alternator. Move the alternator to the left. The alternator belt will become loose and can be replaced.

First you need to unclip the wiring harness, the unscrew the hot wire, then loosen the tensioner, the at the bottom of the alternator the is a big screw that holds it in unscrew that and pull the screw out and boom the alternator is out!!

A quick way to tell if there might be a problem with an alternator is to remove the positive side battery cable from the battery while the vehicle is idling. If the engine dies, odds are there is an alternator problem.

if it is anything like my 2002 Kia Optima V6. I had to remove the axle shaft remove the upper motor mount and then put a jack under the engine and raise it about an inch. this gave me enough room to remove the alternater. If you are not handy working on cars I suggest you find a good kia repair facility and let them do it. Because you have to tear the whole suspension apart. Good Luck

From underneath it. You have to take of the drive axle to be able to pull it down. It won't come out any other way.

You will need to jack up passenger side and remove passenger front wheel. From above remove belt tension bolt. underneath remove bottom bolt, disconnect wiring. wiggle out from above.
