Have never had the task ahead of me until now but I have to change out the alternator on my civic. From a glance under the hood I assume this comes out the bottom ?
The documentation I have is a little vague but seems to support the alternator coming out the bottom. It's been a while, but that's how I recall the job also. It’s a tight fit and there’s a lower mounting bolt that tends to freeze up. So it may require some solvent and effort to get it out. Always disconnect the battery first. My book shows the job pays 1.4 labor hours.
