Default 2003 Vue manual alternator replacement

My Vue has 170k miles on it. Last week the battery light came on and thereafter all the lights went off, followed by the car stalling out. I got a ride to buy a new battery, hoping that was the issue. With the new battery it started up and got it home, but the battery light came back on. I'm thinking it's the alternator and based what I've seen on and read in google searches, that I can do a self repair.

Obviously I'm looking for feedback from the forum with the degree of difficulty of taking on the is project.

Thanks in advance.

Default Re: 2003 Vue manual alternator replacement

DEgree of difficulty would be based on your backround and tools at hand- which we don't know.

which engine?

I've got a 4cyl and just replaced the accessory belt and tensioner pulley. To do that, R wheel removed, fender liner, Rside motor mount , belt and the alt. is right there- just a few more bolts.

Do you have a full complement of tools, extensions, jack and stands, long crowbar comes in handy for shoving engine over a skosh to get a ratchet on the tensioner( after MMount removed)???????

What's the V out of the alt?
