Re: the bottom alternator bolt will not side out,keep...
Depending upon how close to "out" it is when it hits the axle, most times you can put a small board on the end of a floor jack and gently lift the engine. Most times there is enough give in the engine mounts to allow you to remove the bolt. If not you may need to loosen up the mount on the side where the alt is. Also, sometimes jacking up the body will change the axle position enough to get bolt out. good luck

Layman's terms?? No there is no way to do that for this repair. Do you have the pulley removed from the pump? It pulls off with a special tool. Also how do you know the pump is defective, did you test the pressures? It is more likely the steering rack and pinion has failed.
if it the 8 like wedge under the axel bolts you got to hit them on the side to get them out or sometimes use a screwdriver w hammer on thr side of them. then when you get the axel out there be two big nuts with a spacer betwin them.if you have a socket big i think 2 9/16ts or some people use hammer and chisle. take the 1st one off then spacer then last nut. then you mitee half to back off the brakes shoes off to get drum off(small hole in backing plate at bottom) good luck
If you lean into the engine compartment from the passenger side to look at the pully side of the alternator, you will find a bolt (10mm I think) sort of behind the alternator and to the back left. It is sticking straight up, and you can use a nut driver or ratchet to turn it counter clockwise to loosen tension and lower the alternator. But you have to loosen the locking bolt first. When you look at the pully side of the alternator (once the plastic shroud is removed to expose the belt and pully) you will see 2 large bolts (one on the bottom right and one on the bottom left) on the alternator that hold it in place. The one on the bottom left (on the same side as the tension adjusting bolt) is the locking bolt. You will see that there is a track for it to slide along as the alternator swings up and down. If you loosen this bolt, the alternator should be free to swing down on the left side when you adjust the adjusting bolt. However, it is common for the alternator to stick even after you have loosened the locking bolt and . When I adjusted mine, I had to remove the bolt on the bottom right because my alternator had been in there so long is was stuck in place. (The alternator is supposed to pivot on the right bolt, but sometimes it sticks.)
Are you ready I wasn't but I found out how and I did first vehicle in on a small ramp two 2x8 high because you'll have two drain your rad a bit now back on top vehicle in park disconnect battery cable , disconnect fan and horns , unbolt main support cross member between headlamps and remove, front hood lacht all have to be removed , remove upper rad hose from rad and thermastat housing so you can remove rad fans four bolts on each fan on drivers side one on top one on bottom two on side very difficult to get the one on bottom side , alternator tension pulley to release belt 14mm nut located center of the pulley has to be loosend off directly underneath the pulley is a 14mm bolt that will loosen or tighten the pulley loosen off the tension and remove the belt , undo bolts to alternator upper bracket has to be tacken off the cylinder head to give you more clearence bottom bolt and alternator have to angle out together replaceing alternator bottom bolt work the bolt partially in then place alternator in position when placing passenger side fan I found cutting a notch at the side bolt holes and setting bolts in acouple of threads then sliding the fan in place work quite well then tighten all the bolts was easier they charge three hours for this job it took me a little longer working in the rain
the axel that goes in tramission at the end of the shaft there a snap ring try it of the snap ring hold the axel in the trasmission hit on the axel it will come out the trasmission maybe oil to will come out it normat the side that goes on the wheel side hit it with hammer put it back and recheck the trany oil level hope it FIXYA our post PLEASE DONT forget to rate this pierre
take the wheel off , unbolt caliper and sling it out of the way with a bungi cord, take off the rotor, then you have too take the pumpkin cover off the axel diff in the front (drain fluid first) easy way to do that take out bottom and side bolts out then leave top 1 or 2 in but finger loose. pry cover off with a sturdy scrapper from side allowing fluid to leak out from bottom of cover. when fluid is done comeing out then take off cover. to take the axel out to replace the seal you have to push the axel inwards to remove the C- CLIP on the end of the axel shaft that slides into the inside of the pinion gear (use a extending magnet) keeps gear oil on your hands and from dropping it into the pumpkin housing. then all you have to do is slide the axel shaft out. then replace the seal .
