Did this video help you?

Big Guy Review: Thanks for the video dude. I have to replace mine today and just wanted to have a heads up on any issues I might encounter. Excellent job.! 

DOS UNO: +thundercloud47 I also noticed and enjoyed the straight to the point video. Thanks beltstowing for this video. Its great for the do it yourselfer!

Borr Magilicutty: Great video, only one with precise directions on tool sizes, ectt.. Thank You- I'm on my way to replace mine, though I have a 4Gu wire to add to positive side of battery.

Isaac Limas: Awesome video. I like how it was quick and very informative. It was also very easy to understand and shot well. Thanks!

JaenoClassik: Do u kno if the 200 amp crown vic alternator would fit a 5.4 ford motor 

Cory Schneider: Thanks, man. Short and sweet, helped me get the job done.

zach burke: I agree with Dos Uno that your video was the most helpful video. The best part is how straight to the point you are and your knowledge that you throw in about the grounding problems is a great fact for anybody who owns these cars to know

Steve Mattison: Great *Ford alternator & serpentine belt replacement* walk through video! Good job! Very cool to learn that it's pretty much the *same procedure for any Ford car or truck*. Thank you for sharing +beltstowing! *I love your Country style and delivery!* Ain't nobody got time for all that fluff! After watching this short video, *anyone with a socket set can save themselves a few hundred bucks* and change their alternator and serpentine belt themselves, easy! I'm replacing my Excursion V-10 alternator at 198K miles, and this video was a perfect match for my "pre-game" information. Awesome tip about *corrosion causing a false bad alternator scenario.* I'm going to make "shiny metal" on my mounting areas and have my old one tested before installing the new one, maybe I'll save $200. *Follow up:* The entire job took only an hour and a half, and the old alternator was indeed bad. #ford #alternator #serpentine #remove #replace #replacement 

Isaac Limas: Awesome video. I like how it was quick and very informative. It was also very easy to understand and shot well. Thanks!

towrecker: all it takes is knowing that it can be done , and a little common sense when doing the repair , it is really easy , just aggravating is all , good luck fixing yours , just take your time , and think outside the box while doing it , and you will do just fine , hit a snag along the way , just comment , and I will walk you through , I check comments daily , so no fears ;)

beltstowing: everyone likes bacon !

beltstowing: yup , be sure to remember my hose fix in the next vid , you might use that trick this summer lol

beltstowing: 108 views , and you are the only comment , what in the hell is up with that ???? and yes , blow that mother trucker up !!! now do it to it , like pruitt used to do it !!

thundercloud47: Another thing I liked about your video was that you did not stand there and tell us your life story before doing the work. I don't mind hearing people make a speech but there are some folks on here who love hearing themselves talk. I have liked, subscribed, and added this Vid to my playlist. Thanks Again!

northstar2007: Chilidogs

towrecker: unless your running stereo equip or something , a standard replacement will be fine , and yes it's a really easy swap

RustyCarnahan: Would you recommend grease over dielectric smeary-gook?

beltstowing: kitty flavored ice cream !!!

Roflstiltskin: Gonna replace my alternator on a 1999 p-71 Crown Victoria. Thanks for all the info, excited to get the car back on the road!

towrecker: depends really , a few thousand miles most likely , but it will fail eventually , it's a common issue that hits in the 150k range on civilian cars , and about every 50k in police cars ...

kronicskater321: the battery light on the dash of my car comes on intermitted and someone told me its probably my alternator... to check all the wires and the grounds.. where are the grounds?.. all I see in this video are two places to check on the alternator... any ideas what I should do?

More350Power: This video remimds me, I have to make you a video with the mercury.....

daddytech: at least it's not cluttering up your yard still though right? good luck on collecting the money too. from the sounds of it that might never happen and if so i'd never do another thing for that one.

redneck2010ize: so the dumb dumb finaly paid ya to fix it lmao!

beltstowing: just wait , it's not such a rig , and it actually looks like it should be there lol

travis bluecollar: only need a few tools

daddytech: so instead of crushing it you are going to use it for a how to tool for other videos? nice!

wreckingcars72: Good how to vid!! I never knew that abou the grounding problems!!

john dale: the motor in that cop car sounds like crap. good info, freakin ford and their electrical problems. i owned and ltd crown vic and know i own a 1994 ford crown vic lx and that car is a freakin lemon. 107,500 miles new trans, rebut rear end, new front suspension and now the freakin' alternator whines and half charges wtf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kronicskater321: :( I drive a ford mustang dn its got 160k on it hah so yeah you sound like you know... I plan on building this car up and putting a procharger on it eventually, will a standard alternator be good or should I get one of the expensive ones? I know it doesn't give you hp haha but does it even make a difference?.... also seems basic enough to change, unhook battery, put wrench in tensioner move it belt loosens slip belt off, remove two bolts unclip 2 things then put other on in reverse order..

towrecker: you can buy a replacement pig tail at the dealer , it comes with all items required , and full instructions , it's like $15 if I remember right ...

01nano1: How do I replace the pigtail connector on the alternator?

x1pyroveride: Thank you for this video my good sir

Art Smith: thanks so much for putting this video up... and the one on how to bypass that heater hose that runs under the intake ! ive got a 96 grand marquis, which is the very same setup, and you showed me that this IS something I can tackle myself to replace/bypass that hose.. Saved me a bunch of money ! thanks

kronicskater321: so you don't think theres a chance that its just random haha or that something is loose?.... alternators are kinda expensive and I would rather not buy one unless I reaalllly have to... sometimes I can drive and it doesn't come on at all other times it comes on stays on for a couple minutes then goes off again... how long do you think this will last before I am left stranded?

beltstowing: yup , any car can do it , that little ground strap everyone forgets is very important lol !!!

genisisofwar08: @beltstowing

northstar2007: Without the Raspberry jelly topping I hope. nobody likes auntie flo's Raspberry jelly toppings.

wreckingcars72: Very cool!! Monday one of my dodges caught on fire under the dash!!

redneck2010ize: lmfao!!

redneck2010ize: oh

beltstowing: nope , still no payment , but it is gone , I can beat the $ out of his ass if I have too , and I might enjoy that more than cash !!!

More350Power: lol

blazerlover25: well you aint kidding when you say those 4.6 fords have grounding problems and shorts the batteries out because my 95 lincoln continental nearly killed me when the battery shorted out while going down the road at 70 mph..yeah wound up doing a dukes of hazzards jump into a ditch all cause the car died..not a fun experience to say the least..

thundercloud47: Thank You Beltstowing! So far this is the best video I have seen on how to remove those wires from the back of the Alternator. I'm replacing one on an 04 F-150. Almost completely different from what you have here BUT you still taught me some things. I did not know that about Fords grounding out. I have owned Fords many years but never had that problem. I'm just an old man who still tries to do his own work. I use YouTube to learn from folks like yourself.

More350Power: Im a loyal viewer, damnit!! LOL. Your cruiser might be a casualty also.....

beltstowing: oh I fixed the damn thing , and actually got it to leave , after I told it's owner get it , or I will use it for target practice , he still owes me the $100 for repairs , he was supposed to pay me friday ...6 months from now I might get it !!!

Toad Phillips: put down a car just for a alternator? its over 17 years old what you expect?

Chris Cuff: They still have that electrolysis problem?? WTF? How much would it have cost them to use a freaking ground strap?

ss hog: like your vid, good info, keep them comming
