how to remove alternator on a 2005 Toyota Echo... already removed top adjusting bolt and lower bolt but it won't come loose... is rotates up and down.... is there something else to remove...
Country: United StatesMake: ToyotaModel: echoYear: 2005
I have removed all the wires and both the top and lower bolt but even tho it pivots I cannot get it to come out... don't want to pry to much since it might break??
Thank you for using Just Answer for your needs.
Hi, thanks for helping
Take a pry bar and at the top 14mm bolt area, pry the alternator off it its pivot point. It always fits on very tight.
The threaded side, or where the bolt goes in?
Where the bolt goes in.
There appears to be a threaded sleeve that goes through the bracket and is holding it on, does that need to be pried out?
The bolt went in from left to right, it appears that there is something going in from the right to the left
No. Pry between the alternator and the block/head. The new one will feel much looser when you install it.
Thank you - he says it is coming off
We got it off - yea!!! Just didn't want to break it
Thanks for your help - worth the $18
