Customer Question
Im replacing the alternator...

Im replacing the alternator on my 2003 Porsche C-2 Now the only thing left is to disconnect the wires from the back of the alternator. I can't get my hands back there and don't want to break any wires. How do I disconnect them

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Porsche. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Thanks
