1992 Alternator Replacement Video?

Recommended Posts

Greetings Everyone!

Is there a video somewhere a guy can watch in order to replace the alternator on a 1992 LS400?

Or are there directions somewhere on how to do it?

Just drove it onto the stands and after looking, it looks like it's gonna be a bear!

Any assistance on hints and tips on removal and replacement would be greatly appreciated!

THANKS

Do not know of any video, wuzzy (be nice though!). Heck, its hard enough just to find a picture tutorial. However, it actually does not appear to be

as daunting as you might think. While the following is a tutorial on changing the timing belt, pay special attention to step #14 (alternator removal).

Study the pictures carefully and you should be able to figure it out. Obviously you will not have to take all the stuff off just to get to the alternator.

Just enough to get at the alternator bolt/nut.

Here's the link --> http://www.lexls.com/tutorials/engine/timingbelt.html

The alternator is a very simple swap if you've got some mechanical background. Unbolt, unplug, and remove. It can be taken out from the top or the bottom, but if you go from the top the fan and shroud need to be off to gain clearance.
