Rodeo Events

In Spanish, rodeo means "round-up" and is also correlated to the time when a group of local cowhands and ranchers had a friendly competition of who could tame the wildest horse and ride the meanest bull. Today, it is a sport in the USA, Canada, Australia/New Zealand, Mexico and South America, and includes events such as bull riding, saddle bronc, barrel racing, team roping, bareback bronc riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, wild cow milking, etc. Questions about rodeo and rodeo events can be asked and answered here.

How do you replace the alternator?

2000 Honda Accord V6 Here is how I went about replacing the alternator for this model. 1. Take out your car battery and have it charging while you work. 2. Loosen up your power steering container. The hoses can stay connected. Just loosen the bolt. 3. Undo all of the electrical clips that are on the fan so that you can remove the entire fan. There are two bolts on the top and one bolt on the bottom. I reached down with a 10mm socket and took it off (If you have trouble try putting the socket on the bolt and then the wrench into the socket for an easier fit. The fan should lift completely out. The hardest electrical clip will be on your lower left. That one is actually just clipped to the fan so unlike the others, you're taking it off the fan and not separating the wire plugs. Raise your fan out. 4. Take out the green plug off the alternator. 5. On the right side of the alternator is wire going in that is covered by a rubber plug. Pull off the rubber plug and use your 10mm socket to remove that bolt. 6. Loosen the pulley for the alternator. The bolt you're looking to loosen is NOT the large bolt of the pulley attached to the alternator but rather the next one back (back as in towards the back of the car). Just loosen the bolt (14mm I believe) in order to take the belt off the pulley of the alternator. 7. My next advice is to loosen the clamp that you'll see on top of the alternator (your green plug wire runs through this. Loosening this up will make taking the alternator out a breeze and is a cinch to loosen up. 8. Take out your two primary bolts holding the alternator in. 12mm socket should do this for you. 9. You should be able to pull the alternator out with ease especially if you followed step 7.

When checking the price of your replacement alternator be sure to know what the cost of your alternator will actually be. You'll see the price plus the core cost. By this they usually mean $145.99 Core $50. This means you'll pay $195.99 if you don't bring your old alternator (IE your Core) in first. If you do, you'd pay $145.99 plus sales tax.

Tools: Have a set of wrenches, sockets (14, 12, and 10mm), and a pointer magnet is highly recommended.

The whole process is rather easy if you know what you are doing. I didn't but now I do. I've tried to include the basic information I didn't know. Good luck! You can do it.


Well first off if you have the shield under your car then you will have to remove that, 2 screws under the car, 2 screws and 1 popout clip in the front passenger side wheel well(you have to remove the wheel to get to it). Once you have that off you will be able to see the alternator from under the car. Start at the top under the hood, remove your plastic piece that covers the front of your engine bay, once that is off unplug the connectors to the alternator(one is visible and the other is under a black cap you have to pop off and unscrew), there is also a clip holding the wire to the alternator on the shield piece of it(pointing toward the engine, you will see it, it pops out with a bit of force). Once all connections have been removed you will have to slip your alternator belt off the alternator(if replacing belt as well, which I do recomment you just loosen the tensioner and pull it off of all the pullies) then there is 1 bolt holding the alternator in at the top (tough to get to but what I did was stick my arm down the side with a 10mm and wrap it around in front of the alternator and take it off. Once that is removed go back under the car and there is 1 bolt holding it in that you have to remove before it comes out freely. After that your home free :)

Manuallook into getting a Hayes repair manual or similar book for your cars make, model and year. It should tell you how to install the alternator. Your local library may also have a general auto repair manual to give you a general idea. Hope this helps :) also if you have a friend or a friend of a friend that is a mechanic, maybe they can help GeneralI can give you general information on changing an alternator because I've done it twice on my 1991 Chevy Cavalier. Before you get dirty and take your car apart, test it to make sure the alternator is really bad. If you have a voltmeter, measure the voltage at the battery with the engine off. For a fully charged battery, it should be 12.6 volts or higher. Start the engine and check voltage again, now it should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts, indicating that the alternator is charging. Auto parts stores can also test the battery and alternator both on and off the car. First of all, to avoid any short circuits, disconnect the negative battery cable before working on any part of the electrical system. I once forgot to do this while working on my car. The alternator wire brushed against the mounting bracket and made some pretty good fireworks under the hood. SAFETY FIRST!!! Once the electricity is off, take off the drive belt. If your car uses regular V-belts, there will be a curved metal arm above the alternator. Loosen this bolt so you can move the alternator to take the tension off. Note: You might as well replace the belt too if it's in bad shape. If your car has a serpentine belt (one belt drives everything) there is a spring-loaded tensioner wheel. Most auto parts places sell a special tool for releasing the tension. If there is enough room, vise grips will work as well for serpentine belts. Once the belt is off, disconnect the electrical wiring from the back of the alternator. There will usually be a connector plug that snaps in as well as the "battery" wire, a red wire secured to a post on the back marked "B+". Once the wiring is disconnected, remove the mounting bolts that hold the alternator on (usually two or three bolts), and remove the alternator from the mounting bracket (Don't lose the bolts!!!). Save the old alternator, odds are you will need it to return as a core to get your core fee back when you buy the new alternator. When you buy the new alternator, you will need to tell the parts guy what make, year, model, and motor size when you buy the replacement unit. Installation is simply a reverse of removal. 80's Hondaon some late 80's Honda's you have to remove the splash pan and the left side cv axle to get it out. Me firstRead Me First!!!! I have just completed the changind of an alternator on a 1987 Honda Accord. I did NOT remove the front left axel! That is the good news. The bad news is i did some grinding around one of the engine mounts(harmless, I assure you) The car was designed where is you have to remove the axil, but let me tell you, i explored that possibility and from what i read, i tried my way and it actually did work. If you have gotten to this point 1) Car is jacked up and you have located and loosened the alternator (if you are this far, you see what i mean) Its not coming out nomatter how you turn it, pull it.. i tried it all...believe me, its not happening.... If your this far...go get you a grinder and grind on the mount for a while. It will come out and it beats removing the axil and whatever goes along with that ie..grease spillage or ? If you know what you are doing than go ahead, odds are you are not reading this page anyway, but if your like me than take my advice..GRIND IT! ,,,It works

Check out Autozones website. They have the Chifton manuels for most cars on the site. It will point you in the right direction.

Try thisbefore you remove your alternator, try this; turn your car on, open the hood, disconnect a battery terminal; if the alternator is working fine, the car should keep on running, if the car turns off, then you know you should change the alternator, I tell you this because I changed the alternator twice before I found the problem on my car. << - (Don't try that because unhooking the battery while the car's running can fry the electrical system. ManualThis is a very involved procedure, that is too complex to post here. Go to any auto parts store and purchase a repair manual for you ride. There you will find detailed instructions. Cost around $12 SimpleDisconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Disconnect the alternator's feed and secure it as to not make contact with anything. Unbolt the alt. and replace it (belt may be difficult to put back on...don't use a screwdriver though...could cause damage to the belt). Check the belt tension as per recommended tension. Reconnect alt's. feed and, then, the battery's negative.

AnswerYou should only have to take out 2 bolts and take off a belt. When replacing an alternator you usually want to replace the belt to. AnswerIt depends in large part on what kind of car you have.

On most American cars, the alternator's on top--you unhook the battery, remove two bolts and the belt, disconnect the wires, take out the old alternator and put in a new one, then reconnect everything you disconnected. The other end of the spectrum is the four-cylinder Honda engine, where the alternator is behind the engine and you need to be a contortionist to get it out.


This works for any rear-wheel-drive car, SAAB 900s, or any front-wheel-drive with the alternator in front of the engine. Basically, anything but an aircooled Volkswagen or a four-cylinder Honda (This works on six-cylinder Hondas too.)

Prop up the hood. Unhook the battery.

There are two bolts holding it in: the pivot bolt underneath, and the adjuster bolt on top. The adjuster bolt's the one sliding in the channel. There is also at least one electrical connection. Unhook all four of those. Remove the alternator belt from the car and take both to the auto parts store with the year and make of your car. Buy a new one of each. (Alternators come with a "core charge"--they rebuild them, and the core charge is to ensure you bring the old one back. But if you bring the old one in with you, there isn't a core charge.)

Go home with the new ones. Put it in its proper place in the car and install the two bolts, electrical connections and the belt. Get a big prybar and use that to pull on the alternator so it tightens the belt (when the belt is tight, you should be able to push it down no more than a quarter-inch in the middle with gentle pressure from your thumb) before tightening the adjuster bolt.

Hook up the battery and you're done.

If you carry enough tools with you, you can usually replace one of these in the auto parts store's parking lot. It takes about ten minutes.

Who is Gerard Bull?

Gerard Bull was made plane and smart human Gerard Bull is a scientist who build a super cannon for the Iraqis that could launch a projectile 1000km. Link: http:/ Gerard Bull was a ballistics genius who believed that a gun could do all the things a missile could do- including launch intercontinental projectiles (and shoot them down).

He built some experimental guns for the US Navy, but the DoD later rejected the program due to the size and immobility of facilities required.

He then developed a most advanced artillery gun in the G5, and got involved in an Iraqi project to produce a gun of phenomenal range.

When his project did not go as well as planned he ended up helping the Iraqi ballistic missile program to increase his standing with the Iraqis.

After a warning was ignored he was killed by Israeli Mossad agents.

don't forget to refill and bleed the cooling system. you may have to unbolt the radiator supports and remove the cooling fan to gain access to the alt.

also, the 1st alt. I bought was bad, might be a good idea to have your new alt. bench tested before installation, most parts stores will do this for free.

What are three points on how rodeo contributes to the future?

Rodeo is senseless and contributes absolutley nothing to the future....I think it is cruel and heartless...but that's just the way I feel...It does probably contribute something to the future...but it certainly isn't good...especially for the animals.


Answerevery thing contributes to something in the future... some times it is just indirectly..

Rodeo: 1. riding a bull causes people to be continouly jarred around. this may help develop atleast the knowlege of the long term effects both to the bull and the man

2. the safety gear that they use is down to a min. those long term effects could be avoided by the study of the safety gear that could be used. in turn provide the same safety gear for our military.. think about it if a vest will protect you from a bull's horn impaleing your chest don't you think it would stop a knife.

3. lastly, sometimes we look at things and say we don't know why we do it but the longer we do it we say i know why we don't do that.. what i mean by that is things like smoking, drinking people say every day i don't know why people smoke or drink but as we are learning from others mistakes we know why we don't do it.. how that relates to rodeo is right now we are asking why do people do that in the future the answer will be I KNOW WHY I DONT DO THAT!..and i could be because it causes extreme neck and back injuries..

--- you just really never know how things can relate in the future---

undo ground wire cable then jack the car up. Much easier from the bottom. Remove the belt by loosening the adjuster until belt can be rolled off pulley.There are 2 12 mm bolts at the top of the alternator .one can be seen from the front without much trouble the other you must feel for from the back . To get the unit to clear power steering and A/c lines it is best to let down the sway bar. undo battery wire from back of alternator. I think it will take longer than 20 minutes for the turbo model .

What does the overdrive switch do?

When the car reaches the speed that you would like to attain (say 55 MPH) and levels off (stays at 55 MPH) the engine does not require as much gas as when you are getting up to speed (0 - 54 MPH). So considering this, Overdrive is when you get up to speed and the amount of gas put into the chambers is reduced, (but you still continue at 55 MPH) saving tons of gas and is easier on your engine. The overdrive on/off switch controls the transmission. If overdrive is off (indicated by light on dash) vehicle will not shift into overdriven gear (4th gear); which can be useful for mountain driving. Overdrive should be on though as it will greatly effect your gas milage if it is off.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1996 Saturn SL2?

I don't know if it would be the same way with an SL2, but I happen to have a 1996 Saturn SL1 that I replaced the alternator with and this is what I had to do to replace it.

First you have to get the car on a lift. Then, take off the passenger side front tire and then there is a plastic splash guard you have to remove to gain access to the alternator. In order to remove the alternator you have to take the tension off the pulley by releasing the serpentine belt. Then, remove the 3 bolts that mount the alternator. but before you remove any electrical connections to the alternator, disconnect the main negative of the battery to prevent shock or a power surge.

I have a 97 SL2 and I have done the alternator.

Everything he stated is correct. A few additional points.

The mounting bolts are very hard to see and you will need to rotate the pulley to get to all of them.

Once the alternator is free it needs to be removed through the wheel well. It won't appear to fit anywhere but it really does.

Additional points: I have changed alternators in SL2s about a dozen times now (much to my chagrin).

1. Before you even BEGIN disconnect your battery completely. You can cause serious damage to your alternator and car computer if you do not. Better to err on the side of caution you see. 2. The other safe thing to do is to remove the serpentine belt BEFORE you get the car on a lift device. 3. Next, raise the car on a lift so you can get underneath safely and easly. 4. Remove the passenger side front tire and splash guards. 5. Remove the electrical wiring from the alternator. 6. Remove the bolts on the alternator. (Taking care to have the alternator secured before removing the last bolt. 7. On many Sl2s upon removal of the last bolt, you may place your hand underneath it, and give it just about a quarter turn, and slowly slide it through an opening below the alternator that looks as though, and may feel as though it should never fit through. You can do this by giving it that quarter turn, and then sorta spiraling it through the opening in a slow and decisive manner.

Repeat these steps in reverse order to insert a new alternator.

The first time i did this it took me an hour, the second 1/2 hour, and there on out it only takes me about 15 minutes. Its a very simple process, almost as easy as changing your oil... the hardest part is undoing the bolts.

Be safe.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1999 Kia Sephia?

i have a 98 kia sephia, and i actually had to take the (left) motor mount off to raise the engine to allow removal clearance. use a regular floor jack but choose a good spot and a scrap piece of wood to lift motor. using caution and a little patience, it can be done. p.s. the oem kia alternator , is surprisingly cheap.....and the quality is that of what kia fans can expect....?! good luck

I recommend removing the intake manifold to allow clearance, no matter what the design is less than helpful as it should not be necessary to do that ...30 minute job turns into 2 hour job

Hey. You got to start off by taking off you alternator belt. Once that is dont you got to then take your the intake off. Once your intake is off you then take the two bolts, one concter and you positive off the alternator then it will then slide out. Remember when taking off alternator clean conector before putting in new one. Be patient... Good Luck.

Damn this 3rd answer. Someone needs to take a spelling class

My Chilton's manual makes this sound really easy, but its like birthing a baby using forceps, but you don't need to remove the intake manifold or jack up the engine. Here is what I did.

1. Unbolt the main electrical cable from the alternator.

2. Unplug the control wires. The plug has a locking clip that must be pushed toward the wiring.

3. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the alternator, which has to be reached from underneath the car.

4. Then from above loosen the tensioning bolt and the tensioning mounting bolt. Remove the belt and remove the bolts. Remove the tensioning bracket and tensioning bracket bolt. (Chilton's says to just swing it out of the way, but it wouldn't stay out of the way, and you need all the room you can make)

5. Unclip the fuel line from its mounting clips and gently push the fuel line out of the way.

6. Disconnect all the power steering lines and get them out of the way. This makes a mess unless you drain the power steering fluid first or plug the open tubes with caps or plugs. Remove the power steering line mounting bracket. Also take off the mounting bolt for the A/C lines.

7. Take a piece of 14 gage wire or a coat hangar and hook it on to the alternator like a handle, so you can pull on the alternator without having your hands in the way.

8. Gently pull the alternator out with one hand pulling on the wire handle and the other hand pushing all the other tubes out of the way. I found that the pinch point was between the end of the fuel rail and the air conditioning lines. The skinniest part of the alternator is perpendicular to the rotor and between the mounting points.

9. Disconnect nearest cable from the cruise control box. Mine just twisted off with a 1/4 turn.

10. Installation is the reverse of removal.

If you just remove the power steering brackets you can get it far enough out of the way to remove the alternator

What is a bull of excommunication?

AnswerA bull of excommunication or papal bull, is an official notice from the church authorities or the pope which notifies the recipient of their excommunication from the church. It is given to people who the church see as a threat or a cause of disruption to the current system. These people lose their credibility where the local populace is strongly religious as a result of excommunication. The bull is delieved by a legate or messenger to the person in question notifying them of the churches decision and giving them an ultimatum in which to recant and apologise to the church authorities. The excommunication prevents the person from any religious sanctity, which means that when they die, they won't go to heaven. MoreExcommunication was particularly important when it came to kings and other people in authority. When a king was excommunicated, the people who swore loyalty to him were freed of that oath, other kings were often given licence to invade, and anyone who supported the excommunicated king was also excommunicated. As a political move, it was something a king wanted very much to avoid, unless he was pretty sure of where he stood. It was not possible for kings to stand up to such a thing until after the Middle Ages. Two monarchs who were excommunicated, much to their disadvantage, were King John of England, and Emperor Henry IV of the Holy Roman Empire.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1992 Geo Storm?

................................................................................................................... {Removing the Alternator} on a 90 thru 93 Geo Storm 1.6 or 1.8 (with or without air conditioning.)

Detach the cable from the negative terminal of the battery. Remove the drive belt. Raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands. Remove the splash shield from the inner fender panel on the passengers side of the vehicle. Detach all wiring to the alternator. working under the vehicle remove the alternator lower mounting bolt. Working inside the engine compartment, remove the rear mounting bolt and the alternator brace (if equipped). Remove any wiring harness retaining clips and remove the alternator thru the opening created by the removal of the splash shield. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Good Luck! Toxic

TAke the neg battery cable off then the wires on the alternator. Then take off the belt and mounting bolts.

Is it the base model? Remove top hold down bolt and other bolt holding bracket onto alternator. Remove bottom mounting bolt (right next to the belt). Remove electrical connector. Installation is reverse.

NewIf it is anything like my 91' GSI, you're probably asking about the "tight fit" that the alternator seems to have. With a LOT of patience, the alternator is removed by two 14mm bolts below the main tension bolt (that bolt does not have enough room to be removed). After that, you may have to remove the right-side CV-axel to fully remove it. My personal experience wasn't bad because I had totally removed the air-conditioning system and hoses. The alternator can be removed top-side if this is done. -Jegoyet

How do you replace the alternator on a 1998 Chevy Malibu 4 cylinder?

I did change it my self. It is highly recommended that a serpentine belt tool is borrowed from the local auto parts store. First remove the negative cable from the battery. Next remove the nut holding the ground wire on the alternator itself. This will expose the plug underneath the alternator. Unplug it. Use a 13mm wrench head which should come with the serpentine belt tool and place it on the nut on the tension pulley. Make sure you look at the belt so that you will know how to reinstall. Release tension and remove the belt. The alternator is held in place by 3 15mm bolts. One requires a deep socket to remove and is the most obvious of the three. The second is just to it's right and requires a lenghty extension as it is bolted fairly low. The final bolt is underneath the alternator and must be located by feel. Once these are free, the alternator can be removed. The new alternator can be installed by reversing these directions.
