I just did an alternator job on my 2006 manual, took it out from the top, and didn't have to remove the heat shield or purge lines. My trick?

Roll a floor jack under the engine, yank out the engine mount below the coolant reservoir (all three bolts and two nuts), and slide the engine to the front. With a little rotating and shuffling the alternator around it came right out.

Trust me, taking out the engine mount will trump breaking rusty bolts on the heat shield any day!

Good luck.
