Since the engine was new it came out easy. But I don’t remember having problems removing it (on the engine stand) from the 258,000 engine to get it rebuild.


yeah its pretty hard to get in that area without having the battery & ALT removed like @19963.4lsr5 mentioned....


i'm just apprehensive to keep removing things in turn opening up a can of worms... there was a member that recently was working on their engine & the stud bent & he couldn't remove the nut... literally a nightmare just off of one stud. sucks but i'm glad he got it sorted out.

It's too late for me to go out and check but, can you get this through the drivers side wheel well with the wheel removed? Maybe you need extensions and a universal to get the angle.

The battery and alternator practically fall out of these rigs. Takes less time to remove them than to read this thread.

But, I change my oil through the wheel well by leaving one of the plastic clips off the skirting. You can look right in and see the sender. With the oil filter removed you have plenty of room for a ratchet.

I have the bigger 6 sided sockets cause you need them for the drain plugs on these rigs. A harbor freight impact set, short or long works fine. $24

When I put the oil pressure gauge, the only drawback for me pulling the battery and Alt was it was cold outside and my EVAP readiness monitor wouldnít set.

The plug on the back of the Alt may be a pain to pull out if a lot of grime is on it.

It is just a $10 dollar socket and a few minutes with an angle grinder. No need to buy one if you have a vise and a grinder.
