Question about 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe
The bottom bolt for the alternator bracket cannot be driven out. the bolt runs into an engine block casting. how is this bolt/pin removed?
Once the car is jacked up, the wheel is removed, and the wiring is disconnected loosen the pivot bolt(14mm) on the bottom(it can't be removed with the alternator in place) and remove the top bolt(12mm). some prying will be needed to break it loose and swivel. now, if the car is supported with stands sufficiently and jacked up high enough you should be able to squat somewhat into the wheel well and grab the alternator with both hands. have a pry bar handy as well if you do not already have one and pry on the pivot ear a bit and get the alternator to swivel. once it breaks loose you should be able to swivel it, pry it, swivel it, pry it and so on. lifting it up and to the left and it should work it's way out. it will take a bit of effort at first and the car will rock some, hence the need for added support. I had a bottle jack and 2 jack stands for a more secure base.
DISCLAIMER: it's never completely safe to do anything with the car on a jack or stands so caution must be taken. if you aren't comfortable with this method I suggest a mechanic.
back to the repair.. once you get the alternator up out of the slot bracket then you should be able to turn the alternator for clearance and remove it with a fair amount of ease. I turned mine counter-clockwise for clearance.
all instructions are taken as given the battery negative cable has been disconnected, the belt has been removed from the pulley and you are at the point to work directly with the alternator.
