Have the battery load tested,the cold ,bring,s out the bad battery,s,if battery is checked and good,then check the alternator,these can be checked by autozone or advance auto for free.

Battery tested as fine, but alternator supposedly not. There seems to be alot of different instructions in how to remove it. Anyone know what the official service manual says?
