To remove the alternator I found that you take it out by just removing the air filter compartment. Unlike the Honda's you do not need to take the front wheel off. Keep in mind that you will have to twist the alternator to a certain angle to get it out. Hope that helps

What causes the battery to go dead in a 1993 Mercury Cougar when it is parked the alternator seems to be working fine could it be a relay?

An alternator can charge normally but can still drain a battery if the diode(s) are defective. Try this: remove the(red) positive cable from the back of the alternator and then touch it to the post that you removed it from. Remember, this is hot so don't touch it to anything else. If it sparks this indicates the alternator is pulling current, and is bad.

How do you get bolt out of alternator on 2004 kia optima it is loose but wont clear some kind of bracket so I can remove to pull alternator?

Removing AlternatorsI'm not familiar with your vehicle, but have encountered the same problem with Ford and GM vehicles over many years.When a bolt is too long to remove due to something else "blocking" it, it is sometimes necessary to remove the "offending" item, in your specific case the bracket.For example, I once had a '79 Ford LTD that required the removal of the radiator fan shroud, AND the radiator to get the blasted 9 1/2 inch long alternator mounting/pivot bolt out.Try different ways of moving the alternator and bolt around to allow removal, and if that's impossible, then you'll have to remove the offending bracket and whatever else is mounted on it.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1991 Honda Accord EX video?

First you have to pull the power steering pump to get to the Alternator. There is a bolt on top that has to be removed, than an ajuster bolt on the bottom. The Alternator is pretty easy to get out, but putting it back in, is frustrating, unless you have done it before. If you don't have small hands, have someone else do it who does. It's a tight squeeze getting the ajusting screw back on.

How do you change an alternator for a 2000 4Runner limited v6?

I haven't seen the actual 2000 so if it is different maybe someone can help later. But every alternator I have changed has 2 bolts. One that is attached to a slide arm for tightening the belt and the other that holds it in place on the bottom. This bottom one is a long nut and bolt usually. First disconnect the battery and remove the connections on the alternator. Remove both of the bolts from the alternator completely, and remove the belt, I would replace it at the same time. Then you can usually remove the alternator by sliding it up and back or down and around. It can be a puzzle but you shouldn't need to remove anything else unless it just makes it easier to get them out of the way. Reverse order to put it back in. Just pry something between the engine and the alternator prior to the final tighten so you can get the belt tight. If not you will hear the belt screaming later. If so then go tighten it some more.

How do you remove Mazda b2300 shift knob?

The factory shift know is simply pressed into place. To remove the knob, pull on it. If it's still on quite tight, you maybe need to firmly twist while pulling the shift knob. If all else fails, use a piece of leather to protect your know, and some channel lock pliers to work the knob back and forth until it is loose enough and can be removed.

My 2001 Mazda protege keeps chewing up alternator belts or popping them It's been through 5 in 2 mos The alternator has been replaced and the belt still squeaks loudly?

If the belt squeaks, either the belt is loose or something else is sticking. Your problem is not the belt but something else. The squeak could be a water pump about to break. Since your typing did not describe just the way it is squeaking, I can not tell exactly what is causing the problem.

How do you remove alternator 1990 Buick Regal?

After asking the question, I had to learn by doing. The alternator is on the passeger side of the engine near the firewall. First disconnect the battery, to do this you have to remove the the brace that is over the top of the battery, then remove the air filter unit base, to get at the ground side of the battery.Next remove the metal plate that covers some cables just right of the alternator (2 small screws) you then can move the cable a little better that blocks the bottom bolt. Next remove the connector that is closest to the firewall that is on the alternator. (Use a screw driver to lift up the tap) and it pulls right off. Next remove the two bolts that screw into the side of the alternator on the top.Here was the bugger, after trying ratchets, and universal joints with the ratchet, and everything else I could think of, (to no avail) I finally bought a wrench that worked with my air compressor. I was finally able to get the bolt loose, but then when trying to remove it, the head of the bolt came in contact with the brace for one of the bolts that supported the upper part of the alternator. Was finally able to get the bolt out and remove the alternator. Next remove the RED wire that is bolted onto the Alternator.To install new alternator go in reverse, attach the two wires before trying to install the bolts. I did start the top front bolt first and this helped align the bottom bolt.Thank goodness that was the problem, the alternator tested BAD, purchased a rebuilt one and installed it. (It went back together a lot easier that it came out. Fired up the engine and WaaLaa, the battery light did not come on.I hope this will help someone with this same problemRag73

How do you take out alternator on 2000 Mercury Cougar 4-cylinder?

On my 2000 cougar we started by disconnecting battery. Then lifted up the vehicle from the right side, took out front right tire and wheel wells (splash guards). Then we undo the serpentine belt, tensioner is next to crankshaft. After you take off the belt, unbolt the tensiones (two bolts). You won't be able to just take off the alternator, you must take off the bracket, theres about 4 or 5 bolts you must undo, the tough ones are the ones behind the alternator right under the intake runner. Once you remove the bracket bolts, remove the alternator bolts (3-two in front, one in back) then you can remove alternator from bracket, allowing you to remove the alternator since they would jus hit against the side of the chassis if bracket would not had been removed. Remove bracket from the bottom, alternator must come out through wheel well, the steering knuckle (i think that's what its called) must be removed from the top side, allowing you to swing it towards the front of the car, so you have enough room to remove the alternator.....that's how we did it kind sounds complicated because it is...its more of a two man job if no lift is available, make sure to secure the car on floor jacks before getting underneath it since its the only way to get the bolts for the bracket and the alternator near the intake runners. I've been searching for an answer on how to remove it but all I've found was alternators on V6 cougars..which is a way more complicated way from what I've heard...I hope this helps someone else working on a 2000 mercury cougar 4 cyl. Tools mainly used, 1/2 socket, reg and deep. 1/2 rachet, a size 10 wrench, and an adapter for the rachet...theres some other, I can't remember the sizes but you'll figure it out once you get underneath and try it yourself.

How do you change the alternator on an 88 300zx?

Somebody else may have a better way but I found it was easier for me by taking the two screws from the coolant reservoir and lifting it up out the way (without disconnecting), removing the bolts from the power steering pump (without disconnecting) and lifting it out of the way. Then remove the fan shroud. This will allow you ample room to get to and remove the alternator (which is located underneath the power steering pump). "GOOD LUCK"

How do you remove a spell off of someone else?

A spell reversal or cleansing can help remove a spell that has been put on someone. Try doing it yourself first and then if it hasn't been lifted then seek out a professional to have it removed. Depending on how strong the original spell was will depend on how much you have to go through to remove it.
