Turbo (and n/a) alternator (or compressor) removal by the radiator DIY

Just did a video on this, not sure if there's an easier way for turbo engines - this would also work for the a/c compressor

What - no more alternator Tetris??

Great Video - don't forget to pull your dipstick first so you don't snap it off during this job.

AND - negative battery cable disconnected, with KEY in POS II (covered on video in text)

Great. I wasn't sure about the dipstick - I know on non turbo the manifold is a different shape and I think the dipstick tube also is more straight shaped and in the way
