there should be two major bolts to the alternator one to losse'n up the belts and the other to release the alternator to the mount. loosen the belts first and then remove the belts.. after this it should be easy to replace the alternator
the alternator will be on the end of the engine that has the drive belts or serpentine belts, alternators are belt driven.
Changing the alternator or removing and installing the belt should not cause excessive stress or wear on the belts.
The alternator is driven by a belt. Follow the belts and you will find the alternator.
Loosen the belts, unbolt the old alternator, bolt the new one on, tighten the belts back up.
AC, alternator, power steering, and timing belts.
you have to remove all belts
Replaced alternator now belts are squeeling. How do you stop the squiling are the belts to lose or to tight?
Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!
BeltsYes, you must remove all of the belts to replace the alternator belt. The compressor belt first, then the power steering belt then the alternator belt.
the car has the original alternator in it, the brackets for the new alternator (the ford one) are uneven and wont fit the belts on them, i was wondering if i can take the brackets from the old alternator and replace them on the for so the belts will fit answer quickly thanks!
The alternator, belts, and wiring.
there is a belt tensioner near the alternator.
Alternators are driven by belts attached to one or more pulleys on the engine to turn the pulley on the alternator.
it's easy to change fan belts that is connected to the alternator two bolts
it shouldnt but it will if the alternator is bad or it has worn belts or broken belts on it
power steering,a/c, and alternator
it could be a wheel bearing that is bad or it could also be busted belts inside a tire
Just slightly different than on lesser cars: Saabs have two alternator belts that run in parallel. This belt pair also drives the water pump, so they wanted to be sure you wouldn't get stranded. But it's pretty easy: your alternator runs on an adjustment track. Loosen both bolts and pivot the alternator so you can get the belts off. Look how they're routed before you remove them. If you have AC the belt for that is blocking in your alternator belts, so loosen the compressor and take it off. Then put the new belts you bought in place, tension the alternator (I stick a broomstick between the alternator and engine, and pry the belts tight), tighten both bolts, tension the AC compressor and tighten it, and you're done.
It is on the rear lower of the belt side of the engine. You can find the alternator in the back by the firewall on the passenger side of the car. It is best to put the car up on ramps since it is not reachable from the top. You can follow the belts and one of the belts will lead to the back that is attached to the alternator.
the alternator is found on the left side toward the front you remove the three bolts holding it in place with a socket don't use a wrench itll just slip and youll just hit your hand on the head remove all belts from the alternator and carefully remove the alternator to make sure as to not damage any of the belts as it is removed then slide the new alternator in place and put the belts on you then can hook up all wiring and bolt it into place you've just replaced your alternator and this was written by a fourteen year old who loves cars
2 belts one for the power steering and one serpentine belt for the ac, alternator and water pump
