Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

I will be right back with the R&R info

Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

It is a pretty tough job if you are not use to it. Here are the R&R instructions. Book time pays 3.1 hours.

Remember if you rate me we can still continue the discussion. Five star please.

Looks like the A/C compressor has to come off.

Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

If you do not want to remove the A/C compressor and lose the Freon you may try removing the radiator.

Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

Removing the radiator may give you enough room to get it out.

nothing to add
Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

This is the only photo I have. The A/C compressor sits below it. The R&R info has you removing the A/C compressor and then the alt comes out from the bottom. More to come.

Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

Here is a photo of the A/C compressor. The alt is right above it.

Expert:  Cary York replied 8 months ago.

As I said before it may be easier to remove the radiator to get the alt out. If you want I can send R&R info on the radiator.
