Re: 156 GTA V6 Alternator problem ?
According to the work manual you don`t have to take the suspension apart but you do go in through the wheel arch.
You do need to disconnect two engine mounts although its not clear if the engine actually needs to move up slightly, not down. The disconnection seems to be so you can jack the engine up a little and remove the alternator through the resulting enlarged hole.
It sounds like a day job to me providing you have the appropriate facilities. I reckon (guess) that its a 4-5 hour job for a specialist but maybe someone who has actuially done it can refine that.
