HOW DO I REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR IN MY 2003 HYUNDAI SONATA 2.7 GLS
HOW DO I REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR?
You will need to use a 16mm socket, rotate the tensioner arm clockwise (about 14°) and remove the belt from the pulley
Then you will have to remove both the alternator bolts and the wiring, make sure to remove the negative battery cable first.
Let me know if I can help further,
But what about accessing the alternator? It's near the back of the engine compartment and low. any other components require removal?
No other components that I know of. You may have better access through the tire well.
I was concerned with motor mounts, transmission, etc.
No it only show 1.5 hours to replace. I have not done one on this engine in a long time, but I think it can be removed without removing the mount.
I have ramps and jacks to assist.
Yeah, put it up in the air on the jack stands and see if it will clear the axle.
That's the plan at this point.
let me know how it goes
ok and thanks!
