For tools you will need metric hex sockets, male & female torx set, metric sockets, & some good beer to make the job easier. If you remove the engine mount nut 1st, the alternator will come out easier. The engine bracket bolts can be removed with a 3/8" taper gear wrench, due to space confinements. You will probably need a cheater bar for the wrench. Putting back standard hex head bolts back in, will allow you to properly torque the bolts when reinstalling. If you need some help removing any parts, try here!

Good Luck
