2005 focus alternator all disconeccted. Take it out from underneath? What all do I need to loosen up to do this?

Asked by Jan 07, 2012 at 06:02 PM about the 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have got the alternator on my 2005 all disconnected. Looks like no way it will come out through the top. Do I need to remove motor mounts and anything else to get it to drop out through the bottom? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

1 Answer

put a floor jack with a 2x4 pice of wood under oil pan,remove top motor mount jack up as high as it will go it will come out,is a pita to replace,the wood protects oil pan from any damage.
