It was a bit tight coming off of engine but easy to remove without moving engine.
Now it doesn’t easily slide onto bracket to install front bolt. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi,
have you tried to spray some lubricant onto the bracket?
I had the same situation in the past with a 2000 Zx3 and after trying to slide the alternator for 2 hours my uncle suggested it and voila! it worked for me. Good luck!

I tried lube to no avail. A mechanic recommended lightly filing alternator mating surfaces. Very little did the trick!
