Hi there,

I am not finding a diagram of it, can you send me a photo of the bracket and possibly shoot it through the wheel well since it's in such a bad location? Use the paper clip icon to upload the photo or send me a link

Ok, I am showing an engine accessory bracket I believe this is the bracket that needs replacing. If this is the spacer at the bottom of the alternator that the pinch bolt goes through.

I don't have a diagram, but the labor time is about 1.5 hours for an experienced mechanic, so it can be replaced, but I guess it depends on your skill set to take it to a shop or not.
