That is a dealer item, meaning that it can only be purchased from a Ford/Mercury dealer. It will no doubt be an expensive part from the dealer but you can often purchase a perfectly servicable part like that from an automobile wrecking company. The part you're describing is not something that typically wears out or breaks unless it is installed improperly. When you put the replacement bracket in place make sure you us all of the support braces. Look at the bracket in the wrecked vehicle and make sure you get all of the support brackets with it.

It depends if you want to adjust the belt that does the a/c and power steering, or the one to the alternator. The power steering goes this way. First loosen the hex screw running through the power steering pump bracket. Then loosen the bracket hex screw that attaches to the belt tensioner bolt under the power steering pump. Then, tighten the tensioner hex screw that runs through the tensioner bracket. After you finish the adjustment, tighten all hex screws. If you adjust the belt for the alternator. You must loosen the alternator bracket hex screws on both the top and botom of the alternator. This requires going under the vehicle.

How do you remove the power steering pump alternator bracket on a 1995 Chevy Silverado?

I need help on how to remove my powersteering pump? You must first remove the power steering pump pulley. Most part stores have a tool loaner program so you can borrow the puller and and return it and get your money back. After the pulley is removed there are 3 bolts holding the power steering pump to the bracket. Pull those and the long bracket that is on the back of the pump and connects to the exhaust manifold and alternator and the pump should slide out. This information is for a 5.7L engine, but I believe it is close to the same for a 4.3L.

Do you have to remove the mounting bracket when replacing the alternator in a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe?

No, you do not have to remove the bracket to remove and replace the alternator. There are the two main bolts under the alternator which thread into the bracket on the back side that hold the alternator in place. After that, only a 13mm nut securing a wire (back side) and a plug (bottom, back side) which has 4-6 wires. To loosen the alternator belt (which may be confusing you) you must put a wrench or socket on the tensioner pulley and pry counter clock-wise. This will allow you to slip the belt off of the alternator pulley (should be done first during removal, last during replacement)

How does a car break the alternator bracket. I have a 1995 Chevy Astro Van and it has broken the alternator bracket twice in about a week or 2. I replaced it and it broke again. How does this happen?

do you mean the aluminum bracket holding the alternator broke at the bolt holes? do you know that there should be a steel bracket BEHIND the alternator also? when engine usually replaced, sometimes this steel bracket is not replaced and instead a shorter bolt is used to fasten alternator (3 bolts) to aluminum bracket. there should be a longer bolt which goes from the front of the alternator on the left side, thru the alternator and thru that steel bracket and into part of engine?? this part not clearly understood as explained to me by mechanic husband. he had the same problem and corrected when bracket kit purchased from local Chevy dealer; about $197 in Hawaii. hope this bit helps...

first you need to jack up your car and put it on jack stands, then remove the passenger side wheel, then loosen the two bolts on the back of the power steering pump and the pivot bolt so you can remove the accessory drive belt.

How do you install an alternator on 1992 Ford E350?

Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable, then loosen the hinge and bracket bolts on the alternator. There should only be one of each. Rotate the alternator around the bracket to release tension on the belt and electrical wires far enough that they can be disconnected. Remove the bracket bolt then the hinge bolt and the alternator should come right out. Installation is the reverse of removal. To tighten the belt back up, be sure the bracket bolt is loose then use a prybar between the alternator body and the engine block to pry the alternator along bracket. When the desired tension is reached, tighten the bracket bolt back down. Boom Done
