    As the title states any ideas on how to remove it, no way thru the bottom and up top the blower tensioner it's on it's way and I can't remove the third bolt of the tensioner closest to the base of the tensioner any schematics or any help highly appreciated it has to be specific to he hellcat because of the blower tensioner

    Thanks in advance
    Ed

    I appreciated the bolt that it's impossible to get to is the one under the tensioner pulley right at 6pm on the pulley

    By looking at the picture, there's not enough room to remove the bolts in the alternator an pull it out without removing tensioner?

    I have not had the pleasure or removing one on a Hellcat yet.

    The service manual is very vague. All it says is remove serpentine belt. Remove alternator bolts. Remove alternator. Doesn't say which way it comes out. The service manual leaves it to your imagination on what way to go.

    It does say remove the lower bolt from underneith an lower vehicle to remove the upper bolt. Doesn't say to raise vehicle again so one would think they want you to snake it out of the top.

    Is the tensioner the only part in the way? Just remove it should be only one bolt or is the supercharger belt tensioner the one in the way?

    Supercharger tensioner it's got 3 bolts and the third one 6" on the pulley it's impossible to get a 13 wrench socket or you name it to loosen it any ideas

    From what NX is saying and the picture, I would think it just comes out without removing that tensioner.

    Tensioner near engine center to remove belt.
    2 bolts, upper and lower on alternator.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you removing the alternator?

    The alternator went out not charging Fionn & Red, yeah TiG that's what I thought but the tensioner it's right on the way of the alternator thru the top and it won't have enough space to come out thru the top and it's not even remotely possible thru the bottom
