1999-2005 Chevy Venture Pontiac Montana Oldsmobile Silhouette Alternator Replacement
That is great advice not messing with the wiper motor and mechanics. The bolts will break. It is easier to remove tensioner and 3 bolt bracket. Ther are no short cuts, only done the right way there will no headachs. Very good and simple video. Thanks for helping people in the right direction.
Does it hurt the engine or anything that attaches to it to use the ratchet strap to rock engine forward.
I live in my van and can't afforf to pay someone to fix. Repaced the alternator on my 90 toyota corrola myltiple times but the venture seems a lot more intensive and harder to get to than my toyota.
Why do vans like this have to have suvh a small engine compartment. Its ridiculously annoying. Hell just to remove the battery you have to take out fuse box. Sorry rant over.
Just don't want to damage anything.
Great video! Just got a used Montana, glad i found this video
I found on my 05 venture it was easier to drop the wipers to get the clearance
That is realy good video and helpful thankyou so much.
Aight man thanks for the reply and appreciate the video
Hey man now that youve done it is there any short cuts or anything you would have done differently to get to alternator. Bout to have to change one myself soon.
So it looks like all you had to do was disconnect the upper motor mount / stabilizer to rock the engine forward to get to the mounting bolts. Then, was that the water pump you pulled out just before you pulled out the alternator?
What size is the batter that thing is huge
