Just took one out last night. It also was stuck. Had to use small pry bar to get off the front mount. Sprayed the mount with PB blast to help. You do have to use some force, becareful not to break any electrical connections. Once the front mount was free, I had to pry up on it using a small hatchet. Only thing that would fit and actually be able to pry. The alternator became twisted from prying only on one side, so I used a block of wood and tapped it back straight. It finally released from the mounts and came loose. Then the fun begins in trying to actually get it out. Had to disconnect everything around it, took two people and alot of twisting and turning. Not looking forward to getting it back in. Removal took over 2 hours.

you did not state which engine you have but if you are not real handy and/or have experience this is not one you should tackle as your first alternator because...
all will require that you either drop the rear of the subframe or rotate the engine forward to remove the alternator.
everything else is the same...remove the belt, unbolt and remove
about an hour job with experience and two hours if a first time

SOURCE: Can't remove the alternator! How
The other option, but be warned could cause damage to the motor mounts, is to use a cherry picker to lift the engine up enough to clear the alternator from the engine bay.
