How do I remove my alternator in my 03 Kia Rio?

I'm having trouble removing my alternator from my 03 Kia Rio. It wont come out from the top. I can't fit it through from underneath either. I've look around online and read that the engine must be lifted. I've disconnected the passenger side motor mount and lifted the engine as much as 3 inches and still cannot make it come out. Whats the secret?

Images on how to change a knock sensor for 2003 rio kia


On 2003 Kia Rio the knock sensor is located under the intake manifold and must be changed from underneath the car. If you remove the oil filter it is directly above it and is in clear view once the oil filter is out of the way. The connector plugs in behind the intake manifold air breather on the top side. If you remove the air breather cover it will help you get to it. It's not Complicated it's Just a process Of Changing the Knock Sensor.
