I have done everything you have stated it on your response, how can I pull out the alternator out to the surface, it doesn't have too much space to do it.

Expert:  JamesH replied 5 years ago.

If you have done all the steps and the alternator is loose then you will have to work it out of the small space because they do not give much room to remove it. But if the alternator is completely loose then you should be able to work it out.
