ALTERNATOR REMOVAL

1. Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, then write down customer's audio presets.
2. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery first, then disconnect the positive cable.
3. Remove the drive belt .
4. Remove the auto-tensioner.

5. Disconnect the alternator connector (A), BLK wire (B), and harness clamp (C) from the alternator.

6. Remove the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve.
7. Remove the three bolts securing the alternator.
