Hello Everyone,

Just a Nissan mystery on how to remove the alternator on a 95 Sentra. Books are no help and so is the general web, sure would appreciate any ideas.
Thanks

Check out this thread:

I found this by going to the advanced search and looking for 'alternator remove' in the titles of threads in the GA16DE Section

Lew

Lew thanks again did the advanced search got the alternator off and new one on but like an idiot I didn't pay close attention to how the battery wire
goes back on the alternator looks like its bolted with the two prongs facing inward, plus just guesssing about an independent smaller wire thats next to the battery wire not sure where that goes either, no wire diagrams on the web, any ideas, sure would appreciate........Dave

So you have the new alternator in and need to hook up the connections from the harness? I am just guessing. The wire with the prongs goes on the threaded stud located on the alternator. It is held on by a nut & washer, should come with the new alternator. The smaller wire with a ring terminal on the end will be bolted right into the alternator, in a threaded hole. There should be a small screw/bolt on the side of the alternator, if not look for a threaded hole. You will need to go buy a screw to hold the wire in place if the screw did not come with the new alternator...hope that helps, kinda hard to describe. If you can sit tight until tomorrow I will try to snap some pics tonight.

Thanks, Wufaded that would be great, again on the pronged battery wire if I could see how that connects on the alternator without the red covering that would be awesome. Been riding the bus to work past few days not much fun miss my car.........Dave

Yeah I bet. I'll see what I can do tonight, it will be dark but I might drag out the work lights to wash my car today. Its easy though. The connector with the prongs goes onto the threaded stud on the alternator. You might have to rotate the connector so that the prongs align with some notches and the connector is sitting flush. Then you secure with the nut.

SAVED THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:thumbup:

Big thanks Wufaded at work now, but tonight will install it right, really
appreciate the pictures, now I can tell my bus buddies see them in another lifetime, cause tomorrow I'm driving! One last question if I can, are there two securing nuts on the prong (frontside as in the picture, and one in back of the prong ...not sure). It seems like there would only be one. Anyway again many, many thanks.

There is only one nut to secure it...there might be another nut behind it, if there is it would be securing the bolt on the alternator. You don't have to loosen that to secure the connection with the prong.
