Which way does that alternator come out?
I have the bottom radiator support pan out and also took the headlights
and top radiator support off, the one that goes across the front for
access. I have all the screws out and cables off. WONDERING WHICH WAY,
UP OR DOWN that alternator finally comes out.
I pulled the PCU powertrain control unit out to get the numbers off it
just in case. It comes up as a California emission version. I'm in NJ.
Wondering IF I was going to swap that, could I use a Fed emission
version. Number I have is 04896260AE.
I've noticed for a while an oil leak on the front right driver side, up
front. It seems to leak after a harder ride, not if you're gentle with
the acceleration. Valve covers look normal and dry. Its down by the
alternator location kind of and seems to get the brake or cooling lines
wet. Could be why the existing alternator is wacky. Definitely looks
like oil, not atf or coolant. Any ideas what could leak there?
Going on day 2 of tackling this.
