Relist: I still need help.
The answer only stated, Pretty involved have to remove compressor brackets etc flate rate pays 4.0 hours so you know its pretty involved. Can the bracket be removed without disconnecting any parts of the AC and still allow removal of alternator? Does the tension on the belt driving the alternator need to be loosened and is it difficult to get to that part of the job?
