I'm having trouble getting a set of headers installed in my car. Do you need to remove the alternator to get to that top right bolt on the rear header? I've tried getting to it from the top but there's like a plastic casing near the air conditioning hoses that keeps me from really reaching it. Any ideas or tips on how to get to it? Thanks

If you unbolt the front and rear motor mount you wll be able to move/lift the engine. This should allow you more room/play during the install.

Alternator does not need to come off. Its very reachable from the bottom, just flex that arm a bit :)
