I have the old alternator STUCK, i have removed the three bolts, belt and two plugs, and it still won't budge, how do i get it out?
My car has an automatic transmission.
After you have the three bolts out of the alternator you will need to remove lower engine cover and remove the oil dip stick tube. Remove dipstick tube from above and pull out from vehicle. Now you will have room to roll and get the alternator out from the engine compartment. Pay attention of the way it came out since the new one needs to go back in the same way.
