How do you replace the alternator on a 1991 Ford Probe?
I have an 89 Ford Probe. I recently had to replace the
alternator. The manual says to drop the exhuast, but I could not do
that because of rust etc. I ended up removing both stabilizer bar
ends, then rotationg the stabilizer bar out of the way to just
barely sneak the alternator through. You will probably have to
replace the stabilizer bar ends, they rust quickly and will
probably break when you attempt to remove them, but they are cheap.
Good luck! NO! there is a easier way take off the driver side front
wheel and take the pin out of the stearing arm and move it to the
side. Then You will have to take off the plastic wheel well. The
alternator will look like it will not fit but it will just move it
around until you get it out but be carefull make sure you tighten
the nut to the stearing arm back on very tight and put the pin back
in it. That is how I did it. No droping the exaust or motor mounts.
Took me about half hour to do it. Good Luck
