Its friggin cold in chicago, and I have been outside for the past hour pulling my alternator. I got all the bolts off, but then I could not feel my toes anymore so I came inside to warm up. While the thing is all but out, I can not see a good way to get the alternator out from behind the engine. My buddy has a DX and he was able to work the alternator in his car from the right side of the engine to the left side and remove the airbox. only then did he have room. my engine is injected and it looks like I will not be able to do that.

Please do not tell me my only option is to remove the master cylinder. I really do not want to do that today....

There are a bunch of tricks for it... I remove the engine ;)

The first time I did it I unbolted the MC, you shouldn't lose any fluid if you just take it off the booster and move it ever so slightly out of the way. You can also remove the axle or something, Heu posted a trick on the resource a while ago about doing that.

With power tools, you can have an alternator in your hands in 5 minutes if you remove the alternator mount bracket after you've undone the alternator first. It'll then come straight down.
