The alternator in your car provides power to the accessories in the vehicle such as the radio, headlights and ignition coils. It does this by creating current from the turning engine belt. Without an alternator, your car’s battery would be relied upon too heavily and would die fairly quickly. To replace the alternator in your Isuzu Rodeo, follow the steps below.
Alternator Replacement for Isuzu Rodeo
Remove the small skid plate with a 14 mm socket. Remove the ground wire from your battery so the alternator does not have power.
Loosen the six 19 mm lug nuts on the passenger side tire. Do not remove them yet. Apply the parking brake and use the floor jack to lift the front passenger side of the vehicle.
