Hi Pleiades (the 7 sisters),

Your information helped a lot to give me the confidence to devise a method that applies (I think) absolutely ZERO force up or down or to the side. All the force is axial only!

I wrote a pictorial DIY to show others how I accomplished that!

BTW,
the pictorial DIY for reattaching the fan nut is here (thanks to cn90).

Thanks!


PS: I still don't know if it's "normal" to have an SES light after replacing the alternator. I can't borrow the code reader right now due to my friend being out on vacation.
