Which engine? Generally, remove the belt and remove two or three bolts.

2.2L Ecotec - I have one in the driveway. Remove or loosen the belt. Remove the upper radiator hose and that smaller bottom hose on the coolant reservoir. Catch your coolant to pour back in. It looks like three 1/2" - 13mm bolts pointing towards the front holding the alternator in place.

Yea, you'll want to take that negative lead off the battery first and then the connector on the back of the alternator.

Leave the bolts in there loose and whack it with the mallet or pry on the opening at the top. It probably has some corrosion holding it in place.

Glad you got it out of there. If the bolts were loose, it would come free and not drop.
