You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

The repair manuals aren't too helpfull with this either. I've never done the job on a '91, but I did it on my '90, and I would assume they are about the same. With my '90, I was able to compress the CV joint boot up against the drive shaft, and wiggle the alternator around, and get it past the CV joint, and out the bottom. I actually used a small ball peen hammer to gently tap the alternator casing through the opening, it was that tight. I did the same to get the new alternator in. I would imagine that the job would be a LOT easier if you take the passengers side suspension apart, and move the drive shaft out of the way. If you move it just an inch or so forward, the alternator will come out a lot easier.

I had to remove my front passenger wheel for there to be room enough to get my old alternator out and then reversed the proceedure for re-assembly. Hope that helps.

Also, you should note that the bracket which is attached to the alternator; it has to come out "with the alternator" since the long bolt on the bottom of the alternator which connects the bracket to the alternator cannot be removed while it's in the engine bay. Just re-tighten that bottom long bolt (not too much) and remove the two lower bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Then once you got the alternator out, remove the long bolt holding the bracket and attach the bracket to the new alternator. Now you can install the new alternator. :)

How do you replace the alternator on a 1992 Geo Storm?

................................................................................................................... {Removing the Alternator} on a 90 thru 93 Geo Storm 1.6 or 1.8 (with or without air conditioning.)Detach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery. Remove the drive belt. Raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands. Remove the splash shield from the inner fender panel on the passengers side of the vehicle. Detach all wiring to the alternator. working under the vehicle remove the alternator lower mounting bolt. Working inside the engine compartment, remove the rear mounting bolt and the alternator brace (if equipped). Remove any wiring harness retaining clips and remove the alternator thru the opening created by the removal of the splash shield. Installation is the reverse of removal.Good Luck! ToxicTAke the neg battery cable off then the wires on the alternator. Then take off the belt and mounting bolts.Is it the base model? Remove top hold down bolt and other bolt holding bracket onto alternator. Remove bottom mounting bolt (right next to the belt). Remove electrical connector. Installation is reverse.NewIf it is anything like my 91' GSI, you're probably asking about the "tight fit" that the alternator seems to have. With a LOT of patience, the alternator is removed by two 14mm bolts below the main tension bolt (that bolt does not have enough room to be removed). After that, you may have to remove the right-side CV-axel to fully remove it. My personal experience wasn't bad because I had totally removed the air-conditioning system and hoses. The alternator can be removed top-side if this is done. -Jegoyet


How do you change a fan belt in a 1991 Geo storm?

There is no fan belt; the fan is electric. See the question/answer about changing a serpentine (alternator) belt. You may need to remove the passenger side engine splash shield before you can reach the alternator bolts from below. I just work from above to avoid crap falling down into my eyes as I'm looking up, but I also don't have an A/C compressor in my way. For a VIN "6" engine (the 1.6L SOHC) loosen the alternator hold-down bolt (nearer the firewall, above the alternator), loosen the alternator pivot bolt, move the alternator towards the engine, take off the old belt and put on a new one. Set a reasonable tension on the belt and re-tighten the bolts.

How do you put an alternator belt on a 1992 Geo Storm?

your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and power steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it. your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and power steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it.

How do you loosen the serpentine belt on a 1991 Geo Storm?

my name is chris, and i personally am going through the same question right now. i work at don hattan Chevrolet in Wichita kansas and according to all my shop buddies you loosen the sliding bolt (part of the mounting bracket for the alternator, facing the left sidewall.) and that will allow the alternator to slide. then there should be another bolt pressed against the side of the alternator that when loosened will let the alt. slide towards the engine thus loosening the pulley. your engine pulley will then start to loosen because it wobbles, and when your done just reverse the process. don't take what i say as a professional, but as an advisory deal, because i spent two hours toying around and trying to fix mine, couldn't find the tensioner or nothing. good luck DougEngland: Just loosened and removed the alternator belt on my 1991 Geo Storm (as part of replacing the timing belt). Chris's answer does work. Loosen the (12 or 14mm, I forget) hold-down bolt above the alternator towards the firewall. Then loosen the same size bolt (upon which the alternator pivots) below the alternator on the engine side. On my Storm, there is no A/C, so it's just a simple alternator belt, not a serpentine, but I'm sure that moving the alternator closer to the crankshaft will loosen the belt.


How do you replace a 1993 Geo Storm alternator and where is it located?

Depending on what engine you have, it may be on the right side of the engine compartment, to the rear of the engine, or firewall side; or, it may be on the front of the engine. First step of course, disconnect the battery NEG/ground side of the battery cables to eliminate hazard; however, this will also reset your clock, radio, or other memory settings.

How do you change the alternator belt on a 1990 Geo Storm?

first you must loosen a 12mm bolt behind the pulley of the ac compressor, its a little tough to get to, but you can get it with an extended wrench, then loosen up the ac compressor bolt, pry it forward if it doesnt do it automatically, take your timing belt off, then go to your alternator bolt unerneath the alternator, loosen it rock it forward and pull off your belt, obviously reverse everything you just did to put it back together P.S. you can pretty much rebuild the geo storm engine with a 12mm wrench, lol
