Question Changing mk2 jtd alternator?

Hi,
can anyone help me? How on earth do you get the alternator out of a Punto Mk2 jtd engine compartment. Can anyone talk me through the route and method as the bearings are squeeking and I need to get them replaced. There is no Haynes manual to cover this model.
Thanks in advance... Ed

With extreme difficulty unfortunatley, Hgt is a similar setup and I found the best way was to remove the wheel and arch liner plus have it up on stands to get access from beneath. Its still very hard to get to everything but is possible.

Good luck

Yea, as above! Its a git because its very tight, but remove the drivers side wheel and inner plastic arch. You also need to undo the 3 bolts attatching the rigid engine mount to get to the bottom alternator mount!

Are you sure it's not just the belt needing a bit more tension?
