How do you fix 96 ford contour will not charge good alternator and mega fuse?

Doing a Mega fuse on my 96 contour tomorrow. will let you know where its located and the best way to extract it. as for the alternator if you can slide the engine right and pull off the tire that is going to be the easiest way. The engine doesn't need to be slid to change the alternator. 3 bolts secure the alt. best to use a swivel extension socket and many many extensions. you may need to pull the tie rod off to get the starter out. check the mega fuse first. its a cheap fix and if thats not the problem its better than wasting money on an alt.
