Vectra 2005 1.9cdti - Removal of Alternator - vectacnut

Please could some help. With reference to a previous on alternator for my car i have managed to find a replacement part. But having trouble removing the old part. I have removed 2 out of the 3 bolts stated in my haynes manual but cannot locate the 3rd stated. There is supposed to be 1 lower front mounting bolt (i have removed this) and 2 rear upper mounting bolts. I can only find 1 of these which has been removed. I'm now at a loss to what to do next. All help will be much appreciated.

Cheers

Hello.

Maybe the rear upper mountan bolt fell off or was't fitted .is the alternator loose can you lift it out.?

Hi,

Only 2 bolts removed and cannot find a 3rd. Position of alternator makes it difficult to spot any other bolts . No movement of Alternator but belt is still in place would that make a difference.

No the belt would make no difference you still have a bolt holding it in position.

I am not 100% certain but I think you have to get at it from underneath.

hi you have to remove the belt and pull the alternator out as they are tight fitting unit and it should come out

I do not think he can release the the pressure on the belt to remove it not until all the bolts are out.
