the alternator in my explorer is bad, I got a quote from a local mechanic for 487$ I am unable to afford this so I am going to replace the alternator myself. Is there a special tool I will need for the serpentine tensioner? Also I have never replaced a alternator on a vehicle with a serpentine belt so I would like step by step instructions emailed to me, I realize I can just buy the repair manual but I am so strapped for cash I can prolly just afford the remanufactured alternator and a serpentine belt tool. Any and all help in this matter will be greatly appreciated, if anyone has the haynes maual for my vehicle please be so kind as to scan the pages I need and email them to Rongsays@aol. Com. Thank you so much
have the same problem?
