After extensive research, on the internet and forums, there is still no concise methodology as to how the alternator is removed from the engine bay.
Work so far is:
cooling header tank and bracket removed and out the way.
power steering pump removed from clip and manipulated out the way while still connected.
Power steering bracket removed
SURP/AUX belt removed using belt tensioner tool.
SURP/AUX belt tensioner removed
Alternator green plug disconnected
Alternator charge supply cable and bracket (bolted on to alternator)disconnected/removed
Alternator mounting bolts removed
so with the easy bits done…
the problem I have now is there is no gap that the alternator fits in to be able to remove it from the space it’s in.
My guess is to remove EGR PIPES/ valve and front bumper /RAD /FAN ETC..
If anyone knows a better way please let me know.
