Question about 2004 Ford Escape
To replace the alternator in your car:
Open the Escape's hood, and examine the belt-routing diagram on the fan shroud. This will show you the location of the alternator and the serpentine belt tensioner.
Pull the serpentine belt tensioner away from the serpentine belt with the serpentine belt tool far enough to allow you to dislodge the belt from the alternator pulley with your other hand.
Unplug the wiring harness from the back of the alternator by hand. Remove the ground harness from the alternator with the socket set.
Unbolt the alternator from the alternator bracket with your socket set. Lift the old alternator out of the bracket by hand.
Compare the old alternator to the replacement alternator before installing the replacement. Make sure they're both physically identical before continuing. If not, take them both to the parts store to match up a proper replacement.
Set the replacement alternator in the alternator bracket by hand. Bolt it in with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness in by hand and bolt the ground harness to the back of the alternator with the socket set.
Install the serpentine belt on the replacement alternator in reverse of how you removed it from the old alternator.
All the best. Elect_Comp

First of all, be patient.
Disconnect the negative side of the battery. Then, remove the tire.
Next, you must have to remove the halfshaft -in my experience I prefer to remove it complete instead of broke the metal tag- This is the easy part.
This is the difficult part: The next step is dettach the alternator. It has three bolts: one in the top, two in the bottom, after remove them, you must have to unplug it. It suppose to take off the car by the halfshaft space.
