I have now managed to take the alternator off the mount and adjujstment bracket. However, as I wrote below, the adjustment bracket needs to be removed before being able to remove the alternator from the engine compartment. Otherwise, you will not be able to remove it. You will have to turn it to find the best way to get it out, and, remember what way that was as when you put the new one in, you will need to put it in the same way.

I am currently looking at replacing my alternator. I have a hatchback '87 323. The first thing, unplug the negative from your battery. This will eliminate any current on the vehicle or engine compartment. Next, you will have to remove the alternator belt adjuster bracket, so you can get the alternator out. From there on, it should be fairly simple. The space is limited, so you may have to remove the alternator tightly against the manifold. Then, its home bound from there.

I have not done the whole work yet on mine as it just died today, but a little!
