Default OMG this confuses me so much GRR not battery not alternator?

Well my car was having charging problems recently so I replaced my alternator and still had problems and replaced my battery and I still have problems I looked at all fuses in the box and under the dash all good........... cables are tight..........wtf? I am at the point of taking a sledge hammer to this pile its so hard to get the alternator out cause its so burried and I wasted all this time. I dont know what to do? I hear there is a mega fuse in the alternator line but dont know where. I just wana CRY AND BEAT DOWN THIS FORD!!!!!!!!!

Alternator is the problem if it'* when the car is running. A bad battery will be soon since it has to do all the work.

A sledge hammer along with a Pontaic Purchase (i recomend a Firehawk or GTO) will go nicely.

Checked all the grounds? Namely where the battery grounds and where the alternator mounts.

Ford puts crap that needs to be maintained regularly in stupid places the altanator had to be broke off to some extent due to a bolt holding it on in the back of the altanator that to get at you would have to rip the intire top engine off along with the throttle body manifold etc etc etc so amazinly stupid...........the oil filter it took me like 10 mins just to find it.......its visable from the top but not from the bottom and if my hands were any fatter I would have had to take the drive axle off to get at it along with the stabilizer bar and tie rods its not accessable on the side of the car behind the wheel either
