1998 Ford Contour Alternator Replacement #FixingItForward
This video shows the diagnosis and replacement of an alternator on a 1998 Ford Counter. I believe it’s called a Mondeo in the UK.
It’s tricky business. It’s very difficult to access the fasteners for the alternator. It’s also difficult to get to the belt tensioner. So if you tackle this job, be sure to allow yourself plenty of time. I found it easier to use long extensions and universals to access the fasteners.
Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to complete the repair.
