Alternator Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi! Alternator has died, and seeing it looks difficult to get to, is it better to just take it in to have it done or can I do it myself. I am currently in Hawaii And have limited tools, so hope I wouldn't need any specialty tools.

I'm thinking remove the passenger side wheel well and get at it that way?

 

Thanks!

Got it done! What a pain in the butt it was. Did have to remove the fan and and move some upper radiator hoses out of the way. Removed the passenger side tire and wheel well as well to get to the belt. Maneuvering the alternator while removing it makes it challenging while ensuring not to hit the radiator.

 

Glad that's done!

Congrats.

 

Nothing like tackling a repair job yourself, and saving money to boot.

 

I lived in Hawaii for three years and have never had problem finding tools.

 

I lived near Honolulu and the area had Oreily's Auto Parts stores, NAPA stores, and Car-quest Auto part stores to help me over the years there to find or rent tools.

 

So you can get the right tools if needed even in Hawaii, well at-least on the island of Oahu.
