I've found the trick when doing anything to the front of the Aztek's engine:  remove the windshield washer fluid reservoir.  You'll have to take out that metal brace, and the battery too most likely.  But once you get all that out, there is enough room to comfortably remove the alternator, possibly without even taking the bracket off.  Of course I took the bracket off first, and futzed around with the power steering which didn't come out of its pocket even after removing the bolts.

This was after I thought maybe removing the coil pack and rotating the motor might make a big enough hole..  nope.  So I put that all back together..

I removed the fluid reservoir because I thought I was going to have to pull the pulley off the P/S pump (I have the special tool to do so) but after removing the brace, then the battery, then the reservoir the alternator just walked right out of there with room to spare.

Four hours later!!   Angry Grin

@juicestain09 did you manage to sort out the parking brake issue? What kind of stereo do you have?

Sorry for being off-topic. I'm looking for a good stereo and can't make my mind up which one is the best.

There are so many aftermarket stereos that it's hard to find a good one. Many of them have one digit difference in their name. Anyways I've been reading reviews on the nets and they are all hype. Most of them downplay the negatives and hype features like 7" as if it would be that important. I've found a different blog. The thing I liked about this blog is that it says it how it is. No sugar coating no BS. Even so there are ten or more head units on the site. How to pick the right one?

Is the parking brake bypass a thing for all the stereos? Any tips?

Weird Problem: 2004 Aztek Rally would not turn over. Had dim dash lights and no headlights. Gearshift interlocked and would not come out of park.
Good battery voltage.
Turned out to be bad battery.  Voltage would drop under load.

Weird problem: 2004 Aztek Rally wouldn't turn over. All I could hear was relay clicking when key was turned. Also no headlights and dim dash lights, but battery registered 12.5 volts.  After investigation, battery voltage would drop when attempting start to less than 3 volts.  Then discovered key would not go to off position and gearshift would not come out of park. Trying to jumpstart from battery pack and another vehicle only gave us some power, but not starting.
I finally took the 15 month old battery to parts store for a check and it was bad. Did not show bad but would not charge up, So I got a full replacement.  Smiley
Aztek is working properly now. Well other than that beeping for the ABS light which takes forever to go off. Wish I could disable that! Sad

I just had to steal the back off a rendezvous pilot seat (06/07?) and while all the upholstery fit fine, I overlooked the fact that the Aztek armrest mounting bracket is a weld-on piece that is NOT included with the rendezvous seat back.

That said, if you're a person who uses an armrest and not planning to swap out the center console from one, you won't necessarily have one from a Rendezvous seat, or be able to easily add one in.

I would not say the front seats are a direct swap, they are wider, but since there is no center console, they should work fine.

Cluster is a no from what I have been told on another Aztek Forum (Facebook).

Are you talking about the dash Vent/Hud Bezel? That should swap over. But colors will not match.

Rear seats are a NO

Door Panels are a NO

Labor? The Bezel comes out in like 7 minutes, the hardest part is unplugging the headlight sensor. The rest are just pop clips that come out really easy. Just replaced the Bezel on my Rendezvous for one with a HUD, swapped super easy. The hard part was un-installing, and installing the HUD unit. that was a SOB!

As the title says, does anyone know which pieces from a Rendezvous would fit in an aztek?

I know the seats are a direct swap, but I'm looking at the dash pad (the upper part of the dash that faces upwards under the windshield) if it fits with the aztek or the cluster. I have a guy that'll sell me these pieces very cheap, but before I try the labor I thought I'd ask here if they're compatible.

If you are looking for OE studs the pn is 11589154 and the nut pn 11609746.

The dorman replacement pn is 03142 which contain 2 studs and 2 nuts according to the description.

Does anyone know where I can get some replacement studs and nuts for the exhaust manifold to connect it to the cylinder heads?

There's a lot of info online that isn't clear and I figure if anyone knew what I needed, it'd be you guys

thank you in advance?

Still here.  Not involved in FB in any way shape or form at this point, so I hope this goes no where.
