How do you remove an alternator from a Kia Rio once it is detached?

That's the bad part, you have to remove the engine to get the alt. out, everything around it is too close to it.

Actually, you don't have to remove the engine, but it must be raised. Place a jack under the oil pan, preferably with a block of wood to protect the pan. Put slight pressure on pan. Remove the engine mount bolt on the passenger side of engine. Lift engine about an inch with jack. Remove alternator from underneath car. You may also have to remove the plastic splash guard under the car on some applications
