Changing alternator and my old alternator stuck in the engine. I have removed the bolts, belt and clips, but it still won’t come out. What do I do?
Once you are certain you have removed all retaining bolts it may be necessary to use a pry bar. Slide the pry bar behind the alternator and bracket or engine. You shouldn’t have to use too much force but some none the less.
If the alternator is loose but you are having difficulty getting out of the engine bay there is hope. Remove the Dipstick tube first. Then roll the alternator and remove. See below for complete auto repair manual instructions for replacing the alternator.
