Question about 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT
I understand that the only way to really remove the alternator is to take it out from the bottom by taking the drive axle out. Can you explain how to remove the drive axel?
Relieve alternator tension by releasing tension on the belt (it's the A/C pulley you get to it from inside the drivers wheel well), Remove the bolts holding the alternator to the bracket on the block, remove the two bracket bolts on the block and remove the bracket. Loosen the two bracket arms (marked L and R) of the top of the radiator and push the radiator forward about two inches, you will now have enough clearance to get the alternator out of the top (where the radiator was). Easy Peasy. Good luck!

I have changed mine twice and I find it easier to just pull out the radiator... Once I did that my alternator pulled right out from the top.

I'm not familiar with that vehicle, so I don't know if you have to remove the drive shaft to take off an alternator (sounds a little excessive) but if you look at the drive shaft you will see it leaving the transmission and heading back to the rear differential. there are several bolts that connect it to the rear dif. Take those off and the drive shaft will come down. If you decide to pull the drive shaft out of the transmission, then you are apt to loosing alot of gear lube.
