Can all this be done from the top or do you do this from the bottom?
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 years ago.
It may be a little bit of both. To remove the bracket, the bolts towards the bottom may need to be removed (depending on how far you will need to remove them). FOr this, you may have to go underneath.

what tools do you need specifically?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Can you please give me step by step insturctions to remove alternator? What has to come off first and then second and what's next? I'm trying to tell my son inlaw how to do this over the phone. He is used to working on Toyota Camry.
Expert:  Amedee replied 8 years ago.
I tell you what... I do not have step by step instructions to remove the alternator.

I will leave this question open for other experts. Good luck!
