First disconnect the battery, Remove the wire attacked to the alternator bolt,(RED WIRE) remove the wire harness under the post, remove the belt 15mm wrench/socket will be needed for the belt tension pully, remove the top mounting bolt into the alternator thru the mount bracket, remove the lower mounting bolt into the alternator thru the mount brcket, remove the mounting bolt on the back of the alternator. its a simple replacement, to reinstall the alternator put all the mounting bolts back in the belt back on the wire plug back in the (RED WIRE)back on the wire post attack the battery. is also listed in the Haynes manual available at MOST auto part shops.
I recently replaced the alternator on my 96' Lumina. 1. Remove the serpentine belt off the engine by locating the belt tensioner and removing the tension req'd to remove the belt. (there is usually a diagram in the engine compt. showing the tensioner location and belt path) 2. Remove required bolts (2) I believe... & elec. harness plug from alternator. 3. Replace alternator & reverse process.
My 1995 Chevy corsica's rocker panels are starting to rust Would I be compromising the frame to fix this?
What do you look at when a 1995 Chevy Blazer battery light comes on above idle the amp gauge reads 18 volts and the car cuts out?
Absoutely, tho it's probably built into the alternator. Ask your local auto parts supplier if a replacement regulator is available. Of course you have to disassemble the alternator and install the regulator if it in inside your alternator. lol It's inside the alternator. Either replace the alternator or get a diagram of the alternator and rebuild it.
