02 SVT Focus doesn't start


I've been having issues with my car starting up. At first, If I pressed on the gas pedal while the car trys to start up, the car would start. The car would start up normally for a few days before I start having issues with turning on the car again. Recently, I had to jump start the car because doing my other method would no longer work. I took the car to autozone to see if it's either a bad battery or alternator. The battery passed, but the alternator was running at 13 volts. Fast forward to this week, the car doesn't turn on at all. I tried jump starting it and no cigar. The car keeps cranking, but it doesn't start.

I'm thinking it's the alternator, but I keep hearing on how it's a pain in the ass to get it out.

Are their any other things that I should checkout first before assuming it's the alternator?
