I'm not sure why everyone has to grind anything. Take the passenger side motor mount out, and put a floor jack under the motor. You can then move the motor around easily enough to get it in/out/in.
Getting it out is not the hard part for me...Getting it back onto the mounting piece is a pain in the A$$! Some shop offered to do it for $100...I so should have taken them up on it. All I did to get mine out was watch the video on Youtube from 1A auto...
Ford Focus 2002 Alternator removal and install
Getting it back on is a pain and I'm going to try sanding the nipple....
