Well, until today I have always spoken highly of Google.
Now i'm just plain pissed.
Alright, I have a bad alternator in my 99 taurus se. (sohc). And sofar I've gotten a replacement, but dont have the money to pay for the dealer's charges.. (they gave me an estimation of 480 for parts/labor).
I bought the replacement for a little over 170.
I'm not overly knowledgeable in the area.. but I know pretty much what's going on here.. I see the 3 bolts and 3wires I need to pop off to get the old one out of there....
The question is... How do I get the serpentine belt off? -- and back on for that matter.
I don't have access to any tools other than sockets, etc... (so no tension-something's that I'm finding everywhere on google??)
What's the deal? Does anyone have a place they could recommend for me that has a step by step guide applicable to my case?
