Alternator 99 Silhouette

  1. blue46raven
    I took out the alternator of my 99 Silhouette. I was looking at the books to find out how to do it. The book said to remove the engine torque struts in the front of the engine. Then use a ratcheting strap to rotate the engine forward. That I did. I found another book to have you raise the engine and remove the engine bolts and lower the engine. That was not necessary.
    Also, I getting ready to take out the power steering unit. Also unnecessary. I was able to squeeze the alternator out after removing the belt tensioner and the idler pulley. I removed the power steering cap and the engine hoist clamp. then was able to get the alternator out. Do not need to remove the power steering unit.
