Alternator removal Tips??
working on replacing a worn/failing alternator last night.
after swearing and begging (removing the two harness clips on the alternator) and removed the lower 14mm and two 12mm bolts.
BUT only able to swivel the alternator up and down about 1 to 1-2/2 inches (be careful not to bang the green harness on the ac compressor)
gotta grab a thin long prybar, or got to figure a way to free up some room on the lower cradle part where the alternator sits in.
There's a sleeve or spacer that i think is preventing the alternator from coming free.
any tips or suggestions on how to free up the alternator?
(other than more swearing and begging)
