alternator removal

Hello folks, can anyone tell me if the 1999 civic alternator can be removed from under the hood, or is it removed from underneath. I had just replaced the timing belt, pump etc. and decided to removed the alternator, however the lower blot was frozen with rust. I had to remove the bracket as well. That could only be removed by pushing the engine ahead and dropping it down. Enlighten me please!

Re: alternator removal

Are you SURE you want to remove it?

Looks like this (potentially high?) guy can barely remove it from the top, and that's if you can remove the bracket. Someone in the comments mentioned dropping it instead.

At about 37:40 this guy gets his out the bottom. Looks like an ordeal, for sure.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

I'd take it out the bottom.
