The alternator squeals and does not charge the battery, which is new. I am not supposed to be walking due to a medical condition, so I want to do this as quickly as possible, no trial and error. I took a quick look at and was wondering if it was best to replace from the bottom, due to the motor mount placement. It would be nice to know because if the best possible removal and install is from underneath I can do it my self because I can lay on my back.
