How do you remove alternator on 1994 diamante?

Before removing the alternator and bracket assembly from the engine, loosen the assembly bolt by which the alternator is fixed at the alternator bracket. There is only a small amount of room in which to take out the alternator so you will have to work very carefully with it to prevent damaging nearby components. NOTE: If this is a SOHC engine then remove the alternator through the transaxle side, through the bottom of the intake manifold plenum.

How do you replace an alternator on a 1991 Chevy Lumina?

If it is just like a 1990 Lumina with a 3.1 engine, the alternator sits on top toward the back... There are 3 bolts that hold it on the bracket... DO NOT be fooled... 2 are simple to remove... the 3rd is underneath toward the back... nearly impossible... The simplest way to change it (after taking the belt off of course) is to take the bracket off off the engine... 3 or 4 bolts... Then remove the alternator from the bracket... You will need to remove the hot wire held to the alternator, but be sure to 1st remove the negative wire from the battery or you could shock the @#$% out out of yourself... Hope this helps...

How to you change an alternator in a 1991 Saab 900s?

To access the alternator, you have to remove the A/C compressor. First you must remove the alternator belt by removing the adjustment bolt on the alternator. Move the alternator as far down as you can. This will give you access to the lower bolt on the A/C mounting bracket. Remove the A/C belt. You may have to remove the idler pulley to do this. Remove the three bolts (probably Allen head) that mount the A/C compressor bracket to the engine and swing the A/C compressor off to the right side of the engine compartment. Do NOT disconnect the A/C hoses. You should now be able to remove the bolt(s) that hold the alternator in place. Assembly is reverse of disasssembly.
