1995 S-4 Alternator replacement

Recommended Posts

I am replacing the alternator on my 1995 Lotus S-4. I have marked and disconnected the wires (after I disconnected the battery) and removed the nuts on the attaching studs. The pivot stud appears to be too long to slip out of the brackets and alternator. It is blocked by the firewall in front and the engine block in the rear. The fastener for the tension is too long to come out as well. I would truly appreciate some direction and perhaps some suggestions as to how to proceed.

Thanks

The long pivot bolt should slide out towards the rear of the car it may have been slightly distorted so you may have to put some pressure on the firewall end to get it out or use a rachet or rachet spanner to wind it out the slider bolt should not be much of an issue Again you may need to wind it out to get the alternator out you way need to lower it face down and manoeuvre to the right and past where the slider is

Take the undertray off as chances are the belt will drop and ca be a bugger to fish out
