How-to: Access For Alternator Removal - PBR

I have a picture here of the easy way to get to the dreaded vulnerable Nissan Xterra Alternator. It only takes about 5 min to take the tire off and the inner fender well and that gives you one heck of a shot at the alternator! see?


Muzikman has changed one out, and he posted directions here https://www.thenewx.org/forum/15-how-...-progress.html

He can edit this and give you the whole how to and note weather I am onto something here or not. But If I need to change mine, I'm going in this way! MC

Edit to show link.

Yeah, getting the alt out is not easy. Maybe taking the innerfender off will help. When I have to change it agani (which I am sure I will) I'll have to give it a try.

LOL Seriously though, someone ever does have to do this, (And we all will someday water depending) try this and do a How To! (If it's me I am going to be pissed! LOL) MC

Ok next guy that goes in deep, try this way in and Muzikmans directions and let us know how it works out. I'm sure this will take some of the pain out of servicing the alternator. It's buried! MC

I would like to see a How-To for this. One of these coming weekends, I'm going to follow what directions are available and practice replacing the alternator. I'm also buying an extra one to carry along for extended expeditions. I hope to become good enough at it that I'll easily be able to trail service it.

One suggestion, buy an extra set of bolts from the alt. It takes three. The heads are really soft and they are on there tight. I started to round the head off one.

I'd welcome a "how to" on this subject.

My alt is screeching worse that my wife when she finds I've washed her "delicates" with my dirty clothes...

It goes away after a few mins. Both of them...
