    The Oreilly alternator acted up again; this time, Oreilly witnessed the problem and I got a new alt on the lifetime warranty. It's essentially a clutch inside the pulley; it can lock up or free-spin. As well as the black ones to the left and right of it. I would recommend putting all the bolts back into these brackets as to note lose them later in the process.

    Alternator Removal (need to replace voltage regulator) - ClubLexus - Lexus Forum Discussion

    Alternator Removal need to replace voltage regulator. Hi everyone, A quick electrical test at O'Reilly revealed that the voltage regulator in my alternator is failing.

    I am pretty sure it won't be a problem to replace the regulator once I have the alternator out but pulling it out doesn't seem to be so easy, not as easy as it would on a Ford, Hyundai or other vehicles that we owned. I am mainly concerned about losing the grip of the serpentine belt and then not being able to put it back together since the access is so inconvenient.

    I just replaced a busted alternator this weekend. The easiest way to remove the alternator is by moving the radiator. You don't need to remove it completely, but you have to remove the electric fans, hoses, and top radiator support bracket. Once that stuff is removed, you can leave the condenser bolted to the radiator and use a stick to push the radiator away from the engine about six inches. You don't need to remove the grill or bumper, not even the hood release mechanism - that stays bolted to the top rad support bracket and you move it out of the way and set it on the engine.

    You also need to disconnect the horn electrical connectors and some sensor above the passenger side horn. As for the alternator itself, there are two easy-to-see, and remove, 14mm bolts that attach the alt to the engine block. What is tricky to remove is the low and inside bracket attached to the alt and engine block.

    There are two 12mm bolts to remove the bracket. The tricky part is detaching the electrical wire that connects to that bracket. I ended up cutting off the connector and then using a zip tie to re-attach it.

    BTW, our alternator had a decoupler pulley failure. I will post a separate thread to bring attention to their maintenance. It's essentially a clutch inside the pulley; it can lock up or free-spin. Mine went the free-spin route and stopped charging the battery. The free-spin generated enough heat to fry the alternator. So far, so good. Last edited by chuyrobles; at Find More Posts by chuyrobles. Did you have to drain the coolant fluid or did that stay in the system?

    Also, your post reminded me that I didn't post back with what I ended up doing. In one nothing, nothing. I went to the Lexus dealer and they said that auto parts stores' testers are very generic and I should test it at a Lexus dealer any dealer, not the one I was calling. So that's what I did and the results came out just fine, they said that the alternator is in a great shape and there should be at least another 70k miles on it left.

    The service advisor also added that he hasn't seen more than a handful ESs that needed an alternator changed before k miles. How many miles does yours have? We have k miles. It was the ADP pulley that went bad, which then fried the alt. You will need to purchase new tools to remove the pulley.
