Hi, the alternator should drop out the bottom on that car. Disconnect the negative battery cable and then remove your belt and wiring and the two mounting bolts for the alternator. You will probably need to pry the alternator out of the mounting bracket as it is squeezed in there pretty tight. Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX!! I was trying to get it from the top and seemed impossible. Thanks again!
