How do you remove the alternator on a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo?
FIRST DISCONNECT THE BATTERY NEGITIVE TERMINAL!!!!! looking at
the alternator, on the left side, down low, is a belt adjusting
bolt 10mm i belive.there are also 2 bolts in front holding the
alternator in place. loosen the 2 bolts first then loosen the belt
adjuster bolt to get the belt off. then remove the 2 bolts in front
holding the alternator in place. remove the alternator from the
brackets. disconnect the wireing to the alternator. then you can
lift the alternator out. you may have to squeeze it by the fan
blades but it will come out. if you want to remove the fan blades
to make it easer. i did not have to my self. reassembly is the
reverse. when you go to tighten the belt make shure it is very good
and tight rodeo's will squeel if it is not tight.
