For the record, I am using FieroRog's lower alternator bracket and tensioner pulley / dog bone bracket as in this photo.
There is hardly any room to work in there, as the alternator is just milimeters from the front trunk wall. A friend and I managed to get the alternator bolts all out, and the wiring disconnected. It was then we discovered there was no way to get the alternator out of the car without disassembling something. It got dark, so we will finish it up tomorrow.
What is the easiest way to get the alternator out, and the new one back in? Will jacking up the car allow the axle and suspension to sag enough to get it out? Do I need to remove the whole dog bone / tensioner pulley assembly? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
