How the heck do I remove an alternator '73 220D w115
How the heck do I remove my alternator? Unfortunately I have the last year before you could just change the Voltage Regulator and bushes. I have to remove it and replace it.
So I have it detached easily enough. But I cannot physically remove it - the car has A/C so there is a compressor above so it won't go up, it won't fit going down.
Is there a particular way it coms out that I'm missing? I figure I could try to remove the A/C compressor or the fan and the radiator shroud - but I'd hate to do remove one and then discover it was the wrong way to go.
