    Is there a trick to getting the alternator out? Do I have to remove the sway bar to get it out or is there a trick to it? How do you get the ground wire disconnected, I don't want to break it?

    No trick. You removed the 3 bolts?

    No, you don't have to remove the sway bar, it's just kind of a pain. If you don't remove the sway bar, it is possible to squeeze it between there and the front fan, but be careful when you do that. It would probably go a lot smoother if you just take the bar off.

    Good luck and be careful not to strip anything like I did.

    Make sure you unplug it and remove ground before you take it "off", I broke the wire and had to splice a new one on because I had twisted/rocked the alternator to fully remove it.
