as title am trying to remove my alternator bracket undone 5 bolts but the thing wont move
any1 know if there is something else holding it on any help would be great

thanks

well after some advice from some guys of this site i have now fixed my car
i might add that im a compleat novice at mechanical stuff i know nothing really but i went ahead and had a go
basically i put a new alternator on the car well my m8 did
but he cross threaded the bolts and they snapped off
so had to remove the bracket that holds the alternator on(7 bolts in total 3top 2 middle 2 bottom) got that off and drilled out the broken bolt
(couldnt get the 1 out of the engine
) then put it all back together (on my own very scary when u dont know what ure doin
) then it was time to start it...... belt making a noise
hell....but alittle tweek to the tensioner started it again and......BINGO job done once again 1 happy
owner.... for now


Im proper chuffed with doin this myself as i never though that i could do things like this,just goes to show if u have a go and u might surprise ureself.
also thanks to the guys that gave me some sound advice


thanks
