Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
How do you get the alternator out the space is tight. I have it off but can't get it out to replace the new one.
You may try removing the engine mount and slightly raising the engine. It will give you much more room to work. I had to replace the timing belt on mine and I resisted this advice for a while. Once I finally did, the job went much quicker. I placed a jack under the oil pan (with a block of wood between jack and oil pan) and then upped the jack until it just made contact. Then I removed the engine mount directly in front of the serpentine belt. You can then slowly jack the engine up to gain more room. I can't remember where the alternator is on the sephia (up high on the motor or down low). If it's low, you could just lower the jack slowly to gain more room.
