Wrong alternator in 1998 pontiac sunfire

I have a 98 pontiac sunfire that has the wrong alternator in it, so a mechanic fixed the wires so it would work. We are replacing the alternator with the RIGHT alternator, but aren't sure how to put the wiring back to where it should be on this alternator.

Does anyone have any idea where we could find a diagram for the alternator wiring?

How to get the back seat of 98 pontiac sunfire to let down with the latch broken?

Find yourself another 98 Pontiac sunfire somewhere, and ask the owner to let you see the mechanism, so you can repair it.
You might be crawling inside the trunk and unscrewing the latch or lock in there to release it, and then finding a used pull lever somewhere, or make one from scratch.
God bless your efforts.

My car won't start and the battery is fine. i have a 98 pontiac sunfire 2.4L, please help

Not enough info to work with. Several problems can cause a vehicle not to start. If your battery is fine that is good, but does the car crank? (engine turning over attempting to start.) I will not speculate on what may be wrong without knowing more details...

its normal it is just the road is wet so less traction on the tire so slips and when water gets into rotors it tend to slip not like when it dry.

You are going to have to tear it apart, chances are something in the operating mechanism is broken and until that is fixed you are stuck.

Flickering Headlights and Dim interior lights

Definately an electrical problem....first off, check the battery and alternator connections to make sure they are tight. The problem has to be before the fuse box because the headlights and interior lights are on different fuses. It sounds to me like a loose wire, corroded battery terminals, or an alternator that is going bad. An alternator is a relatively easy and cheap fix. They cost about $100 and require removing a few wires, 3 bolts, and the serpentine belt.
