2004 Ford Escape XLS 6 Cyl 3.0L
any suggestions on replacing the alternator on an 04 escape?
It is a nasty alternator to do. Definitely not for the occasional DIY mechanic. Involves removing the r/s intermediate axle shaft, splash shield, drive belt and tensioner, harness retainer bolt, unbolt the alternator and position it to the side, remove the alternator bracket and then remove the alternator. Billing labor would be 2 to 3 hours.
