How do you replace the alternator on a Ford Taurus?

The first thing you have to do is disconnect the battery. (Very important). Then you have to loosen the serpentine belt that drives the alternator. The Fords usually have that adjustment right there on the alternator. You then remove the bolts that hold the alternator to the engine as well as the wires that are attached to it. Make sure when you reinstall the new alternator that you tighten the wires to it securely exactly as they came off the old one. Put the belt back on it and adjust it until the belt is snug but do not overtighten it or you will burn out the bearings in the new alternator very rapidly. If the belt squeals when you start it and rev up the engine some then the belt is too loose and needs to be tightened more.

You'll probably want a manual for this, but you may be able to locate a bracket on or near the alternator that moves the alternator itself or a pulley that the belt runs on. This is a tensioner and turning the bolt one way or the other will tighten or loosen the belt. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE BELT! This will damage the components the belt runs on.
