Alright so this is my wife’s 1992 Mazda 323. Best car we’ve ever owned. So from a truck. Car we never owned. It’s a really bad car 35 miles a gallon always gets you know always is really reliable recently I think that the alternator went out. She’s been having some slow starts in in the morning and some and they replaced the battery within their stay. You can see there an Arab plates I clean all this stuff up. And put new. Connections on the battery. Still same problem and last night when she was coming off a roll and every practice it failed owner. So. We charge the battery up and got the car home. And I tested the alternator is a couple tests that you can do for your alternator and they’re similar to motorcycles.
First off I your charge lie all start to come on again them and then get brighter and brighter as the problem gets worse. Second you’ll see that it’s just not charging. This battery is. Holding a steady 12.64 volts. I’m going to turn the car on. NBI. But it’s not guarding. Finally I took it to advance auto parts and they put their little machine on that they do this for free and stuff like that wave form here. You know it started out just above 12 volts. And it drops down we hit the starter and then he came back up. And it stand like a 12 volts he insists it’s not very often there on the thirteenth of. Results diode open. So. So there’s kind of stuck open that. On I would bet. So I went to. The picking poll. Our local junk here.
For one out of a Mazda protege. Exactly alternator $10.99 for this, and at advance auto parts they wanted $160. We’re gonna have a nice low mileage car, price here http://bokepmedia.com. An hour gonna throw it in there and hopefully this does the trick. Send this vehicle the alternator is located down here on the passenger side. But it could be up front. On any other vehicles or whatever just find your belts. And. Follow your built into the see something that looks like this. Of typically they are connected by just me. 2 to 3 bolts. See this one here. Is the sliding bowl and it slides back and forth here in order to apply tension to the belt. 2 ducks a little bit loose.
And there’s another bolt down there that’s the pivotal and now on to sort of allows it to pay it back and forth so that’s how you tighten your belt. We’re gonna do is I’m gonna take out this fall you take out that one. You’ve got 2 connectors one here. And one underneath this cap here. Which is on. I think if. Good are to get that off but. Intel on body 10 millimeter not. If you have a Jack the car up to get on anything get that set them both down. Always safety for. Alright so after some wiggling and some genuine popped right out.
