    Porsche 996 Carrera 2 (2003), Lapis blue, Turbo front.
  1. I replaced the alternator this weekend on my 996 C2-03. I followed Loren's guide aswell as the DIY guide on Pelicanparts.com. In addition to what is said there, I have the following tips. Loosen the lower left bolt, but keep it in place. After having tapped the long bolt on the right, remove it completely. Spray WD40 on the bushing. After that, and here's the trick, gently push the alternator counter clockwise using a crowbar squeezed in under the alternator using the metal plate, that holds the left bolt, as support. I found it to be very useful and the extra leverage made it very easy. All in all it took me three hours from A to Z, whereof half of that time was spent trying to move the alternator before I tried the crowbar. Good luck!
