i removed the alternator but it wont come out of the frame

My car has 202000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

To get your alternator completely out, you should turn the wheel fully to the right, with vehicle on a lift to give you some clearance. You should be able to remove the alternator from there.

If you run into any issues or would like some help with the job, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can ensure a proper replacement of your alternator. Best of luck.
