Hey guys I've been away from the forum for several months, but I had a few questions for you. My alternator is on it's way out on my 2000 XJ sport, and it looks like I will be buying on new alternator on my way home from work today. Now I have not purchased a Hanes Manual form the Jeep yet, and so my only question since the take out and replacement looks pretty straight forward; do you guys have any tips from past experiences on what to watch out for?

Also does anyone have a diagram of the timing/serpentine belt configuration? If I can't find a diagram I was just going to try and tape the belt in place and/or take pictures of the belt's route before I get started.

Now it looks like I have to remove the a/c compressor to access the alternator, is their anything else I need to remove to make this process easier?

Thanks guys I appreciate the help,

Anthony

it goes in the opposite the way you take it out . worst part is loosening off the belt , i use a air ratchet makes life easier (really one of the few things there good for , that and rotex bearings)

makes sure the bolts are good and tight , i put stover nuts on mine because the nuts came off some how .

Thanks guys, but I wish I had looked at this earlier today since it took me about an hour and 45 minutes today... It was not that bad, I had to remove the coolant resevior to actually pull out the old alternator and put the new one in. Once all of the two main bolts were out a hammer and a screw driver is all I needed to pop out the old one and pop in the new one...

But I appreciate the help regardless, at least I know I did everything correctly!

Oh and it makes life much easier to remove the electrical fan to access the tensioner bolt and tensioner, I had so much more room to work after that was taken out!
