Customer Question

I think you've already answered it. It is in regards ***** ***** the bottom bolt on a 2004 Suzuki Forenza alternator. I can't get it aloose.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Well need to replace the alternator and I have everything connected to the alternator aloose, but the bottom bolt is too long to take all the way out. It keeps hitting the firewall. Trying jacking up the engine to no avail. Can't reach it from below or from the tire well. So I'm stuck.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Auto Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $24 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
