When replacing alternator in a 1991 Olds Calais Quad 4 how do you remove the bottom bolt?

User Avatar
olds cutlass calias bolt removal. you must remove the air box, the radiator cooling fan and anything else that is in your way from accessing the alternator from the top, front of the car. a longer extension on a 3/8 drive ratchet and the proper size socket,13mm or 15mm should remove this bolt.

How do you remove the alternator on a 1991 Lexus LS 400?

User Avatar
In most cases the alternator fails due to fluid leaking from the power steering pump which is located above the alternator. I believe that you must remove the power steering pump first but it may be possible to remove from below as well. As you stand in front of the car looking at the engine, look down to the left behind the radiator and you will see the power steering pump. Now squirm around and look down uder that and there it is. For a detailed explaination by someone who has done this job, search the workshop files on lexusownersclub.com which is an excellent website for all Lexus owners. Tell them vbdenny sent you!

How do you remove alternator?

User Avatar
Most alternators have the following connections: - drive belt from the engine - pivot bolt on the bottom - tensioning bolt(s) on the top - electrical connections Disconnect the battery Remove the drive belt from the pulley on the front of the alternator Loosen the top bolts but do not remove Disconnect the electrical connections to the alternator Disconnect the pivot bolt and slide it out Remove the top bolts and work the alternator loose from the bushings on the bottom Remove alternator from the car The replacement alternator will usually not have a pulley on it, so remove it from the old and install it on the new (impact wrench) The new alternator may not be clocked the same as the old. Take it back to the store and have them clock it to match the old one The only difficulty going back in is the bushings on the bottom may not be far enough apart to permit insertion of the new alternator bottom bracket. I used a C-clamp and a short section of pipe (about 1") to retract the bushing far enough to get it to go in. A socket wrench socket could also be used to press out the bushing just far enough to get the bracket to slide in. This all takes about 1-2 hours if you have the right tools and longer if not.

How do you remove alternator from 2 wheel drive 1982 Toyota truck 22R?

User Avatar
there is a bolt on the alternator bracket for adjusting the belt tension and you take that bolt out. then feel under the alternator and there is another boltthat mounts the alternator to the engine. if you turn this it will just spin you need to put a wrench on the nut on the other side of the bolt. i had to loosen the whole top bracket to get the alternator out of the tight space or you could also remove the bottom rad hose for some space to take it out. i am 18 and figured it out in about 20 mins its really not too hard.

Remove the drive belt. Remove the electrical connection, remove the alternator. OR - IS IT HIDDEN BEHIND OTHER CONPONENTS? I had to change mine on a 1990 and it's the same for yours. You need to always remember to disconnect the neg on the battery first. You need to move the fly wheel just a tad so remove the belt and slide the wheel over then the rest is easy. Good luck.

How do you remove the alternator from 1994 Cadillac eldorado?

To remove disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the cover from the headlamps and radiator shroud. Disconnect the left engine torque strut from the radiator support then disconnect the upper trans oil cooler line from the transmission cooler.Next remove the right and left cooling fan. After that is done remove the serpentine belt from the alternator. Next remove the bolt from the front top of the alt. and the bolt from the locovered in this guider front of the alt. And detach the harness connector and putput cable from the alt. Just so you know the bolt nearest the exhaust manifold can't be removed from the bracket but can be backed out to allow it to be taken out. You'll have to remove the a/c splash shield from the cradle and the access panel from the bottom side of the radiator and disconnect the engine harness from its cradle. You can move the alt away from the engine and pull it out from the bottom side of the engine if you need help putting it back in then post and if i see it I'll help

Never, unfortunately. When developing the T5, VW was planning to develop the retro-style Minibus concept for the US, so the T5 wasn't developed for US specs (those "safety standards" to discourage import vehicles). The Microbus got cancelled for financial reasons, and they will be offering a VW re-badged version of the 2008 Dodge Caravan (which they "developed in cooperation"). Perhaps "one" can..... http://www.westfalia.org/community/showthread.php?4197-Any-interest-in-the-Volkswagen-T5-California-or-is-this-heresy-to-abandon-Westfalia..&p=14182#post14182

How do you remove alternator on 2000 cougar?

User Avatar
It should be the same as for a 2002 Mercury Cougar which is answered in WikiAnswer under the Question; " How to remove alternator from a 2002 Mercury Cougar 2.5L V6." The 2000 Cougar may be different by having an upper alternator BOLT. If it does, and you can't lift the bolt out (after fully loosening the bolt), lower the alternator and you can, then, lift the bolt out. When you begin to install the alternator (attach the power wire, and the wire connector) place the BOLT in the upper hole in the alternator, and THEN, raise the alternator to install.

User Avatar
If it is too low on coolant the ac compressor will not engage. It is a safety feature to keep from burning it up. Try to add freon and as the pressure builds the compressor should kick on. If you are sure you have adequate coolant; it could be anything from electrical to a frozen compressor.

How do you change rear brake pads on Suzuki 700 kingquad?

User Avatar
You need to pull the rear differential off the bike. It sounds like a lot but it's really only about 10 bolts. Pop the axles out. Remove the left upper a arm to make room for one of the bolts to come out. Once you have the diff on the bench take the cover off the front. This is where the drive shaft went through. It's best to sit the differential so that the cover is on top. There are 5 ball bearings that are going to fall out. Don't be alarmed, you can see right where they go. Just don't lose them. This will allow the clutch to sit in place. There will be two steel rings held together by springs. In between those two rings are a couple of steals and a couple of brake pads. These are what you change. Reassemble, put new oil. Use some heavy grease to hold the ball bearings in place when you put it back together. Good Luck.
