From what the manual says you have to remove the axle shaft and lower control arm off. I've looked at this with some dread if my alternator died. I did see one post here that said where you can snake it out through the top. Looking my nonturbo manual I think I could do it.
You at least need to remove the splash shield and pencil brace to get to the alternator attachments. Good luck.
Let us know.

It was somewhere in the depths of one of these threads. It said something like ' I think you can kind of force the alternator out of the top'. Nothing more helpful like instructions.
