  • Alternator removal.

    Has anybody removed an alternator from an NL, 3.5 ltr? Can see how to get it off its mounts but am a bit bushed as to how to get it physically out past pipework, etc and onto the bench.

    Been suggested to me that the radiator has to come out so that the alternator is removed forward - is that correct? Seems awfully complex if that's the case.

    I replaced the alternator on my NL about 3 months ago.

    If I remember correctly, I had to remove;
    1. the air cleaner box
    2. the ?intake pipe? between the air cleaner box and the intake manifold
    3. and a small bracket (I can?t remember which one but it?s the bracket that obviously gets in the way)

    I was then able to wiggle the alternator out between the engine and the right hand inner guard (mine doesn?t have ABS, if yours does it may be more complicated).

    I hope that this helps

      Geopaj,

      Thanks for your comments, I'll give it a go when I'm next at home. No ABS so one less obstacle. Still can't believe how a simple job has been made so difficult by the designers.

        Geopaj,

        Success, managed to get the alternator out this afternoon, and relatively easily after your input. Now, is putting it back, when the time comes, as easy????

          You obviously haven't looked under the bonnet of many cars if you think a Pajero alternator is a difficult job to remove.
          Design nightmare is removing a starter motor from a Landcruiser/Lexus 100 series V8.

            I can't remember which model it is, but one of the newer Fords (I think) has an alternator so difficult to get to that you practically have to remove the engine to get it out.
