Hi,

I have a 1989 civic with a D15B2, I am removing the alternator. I have it unbolted, but now I am having a problem getting it out. There is no hole big enough to just slide it out. What should I do? Should I take the master cylinder out or would it be easier to get it out from the bottom?

Any help would be Most appreciated!

I dont know if this will be especially helpful, but then again it might be. So here goes:

A while back I replaced the alternator in my sister's Accord (yes, I know... different from a civic...) I think it was around your year though. 89-90ish

To get the alternator out I had to actually put a jack under the engine (use a piece of wood under there to spread the load... do NOT dent/deform the oilpan!) and unbolt the left-side engine mount. then I jacked that side of the engine up just enough to squeeze the alternator out.

Installation of the new alternator was just the reverse.

Would this work in your case? (Just an Idea)
