Chrysler Repair/alternator: 2.4L


I have a 2010 2.4l sebring I took out the alternator to have it fixed, but i had a hard time taking it out of the engine is there an easier way to put it back in? and also the bottom bolt doesn't seem to bolt anywhere am i missing something?

Hi Rudy,
In the '06 manual (the most recent I have for the Sebring) the two suggestions were to jack up the right front and then remove the splash shield between the right wheel well and the engine compartment. Then after the drive belt is removed also remove the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor from the intake manifold to give you better access. I didn't see any details about the bottom bolt unfortunately but perhaps the mounting bracket has a threaded socket into which the bolt is inserted. Please 'rate/nominate' this answer/me (see the PS below).
