must removed the shield that covers the the fan in front. once that's removed you could get a better clear area to get to the alternator.

That is more hassle then whats its worth. the whole front suspension is totaly diffrent then the AWD. plus the rest of the AWD equipment that is needed to make it work. if you want AWD find one that has a bad motor and replace it with the one you have as long as you don't have a lot of mileage on that motor. or rebuild the motor and there you have an AWD van. it would be cheaper than trying and less painful

Look under the alternator , as your standing , facing the front of the engine , to your left follow the belt down . It has a 3/8 square in it so you can use a ratchet to take the tension off the belt for removal. Easy to replace attached by one bolt to the engine and is sold as a unit (arm , sprng assembly and roller) for around $20.00. Just alot of stuff to reach through to get to it.

Remove the cylinder had from your 1997 Chevy Astro engine. Remove the head gasket and clean the surface. Put the new head gasket on and reverse the process.

You cannot "convert" an AWD transmission to 2WD or vice versa, you'd have to take the whole thing apart.

in order to clear the codes on your 200 safari first you need to fix the problem in the awd system and should clear by it self. The only thing that can turn that light is speed sensors wrong, speed sensors are not the only thing that will turn the service AWD light on. Wheel speed sensors are related to the ABS light

( No ) the 1997 Ford Explorer uses automatic transmissions that are ELECTRONICALLY controlled , where the 1992 model year is not ( P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician )

AnswerFor the First Generation Murano there are 2 AWD lights, one that says AWD and one that says AWD LOCK. if the AWD Light is on, Then you have a Problem in the AWD System, if the AWD LOCK light is on, then your AWD is stuck on on, or you just have to turn it off.
