replacing alternator in 96 corsicadetach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery. Remove the drivebelt and on your model of car disconnect the air conditioning hoses from the backside of the alternator. remove the mounting bolts and separate the alternator from the engine. Installation is reverse of removal. Also you may want to label time wires after you detach them from the alternator, too. you out... Bren

I just changed my alternator on my 1996 Chevy Corsica v6. There are no a/c hoses and the drive belt is the tricky part because the adjustment pully is down in the bottom half of the engine you need to pull it up as you bolt off. Remove the negative part of the battery and then remove the main bolt towards the back the to smaller bolts and the bolt that holds the battery and then remove the wiring harness from the bottom once the alternator is loose. put it back in the opposite. I would not suggest for someone with no experience attempt to try to do this without some advise. As an alternator would seem to be an easy job and most cars are...and don't let this sway you with this car because with very little care other than what most people don't do is change the oil get regular tune ups and this car will run forever longer than Hondas or Toyotas those cars fall apart on the out side and are not safe they just run on "black oil" for very lazy people this car has a 5 star engine they just come in a ugly body but you can find the 3100 in many cars like late 90's blazers witch are a lot better looking then a corsica
