    Default 1998 Skylark alternator change?

    Does anyone have or know where I could find schematics on how to do
    this?
    We managed a change in a Skyhawk, but the Skylark is completely
    different O.o and while we know where to begin we just can't get the
    alternator out of the engine to change it out for one that actually
    works...

    What engine?

    It should be quite obvious - not to be sarcastic. Likely there will be one
    bolt on the right lower corner as you look at the alternator from the
    passenger fender. There will be another behind it - facing the firewall,
    just behind the lower left corner. There will be a third behind the left
    side of the alternator, about the mid-line. If you look, you'll see the
    bolts - or feel them.

    You probably should invest in a Haynes manual or the likes, available from
    just about any aftermarket parts store.

    Probably a 3.1. Isn't that alt on top of the engine in plain sight?

    Hmmm, 2 bolts and it comes right off. One plug and one wire nut.
    Perhaps it is corroded on? Try tapping or prying on an ear.
    Please don't be insulted, but I have to ask: Is the belt off?
