If you build the little tool I mentioned in another thread (24 mm socket, 10x50mm bolt, and a couple of washers), taking off the alternator is an absolute snap. Takes like 2 minutes, and the same thing for putting it back on.

All these people using crowbars, pick axes, and mallets to remove and replace alternators... I've got to believe this is way easier than trying to replace the VR while it's still on the car...
