It isn't easy! I just did the alternator on my 94 Grand Caravan 3.8 L. Book instructions don't help all that much.

FROM underneath the van: Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. If you can remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold, it's easiest to take it out from underneath. There is a support brace that goes from the Power steering pump bracket to the engine block. Remove it, then remove the upper and lower alternator mounting bolts. Disconnect the electrical connections, and lower the alternator to the ground. If you can't break the exhaust pipe bolts free...this won't work.

Good Luck! Don

You can begin by removing the wiring harness from the back of your 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan alternator. Remove the alternator belt. Remove the retaining nuts. Reverse the process to install your new alternator.
