Unavle to remove Alternato 1999 Ford Contour 6cy

Asked by Jul 19, 2015 at 02:37 AM about the 1999 Ford Contour 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am removing the alternator from my 199 Ford Contour, 6CY. I'm down to the bolt at the lower left corner. It's very difficult to get a socket on it. When I do there is no room to move the wrench, no matter which angle I try. None of the forums I've read mention this problem and how to get the bolt off.

Yes, That allowed me to get my hand around the bracket to feel the bolt and get a socket on it, but there doesn't seem to be room back there to move the wrench, thanks
