Alternator Replacement

I have searched and read som eold post so I think this Haynes manual is full of bull**** but does anyone know the answer to this.......

I have a 2000 V6 camaro

the haynes manual says replacing the alternator requires removing the EVAP canister purge Solenoid before unbolting the alternator.

I cant even Identify wha this is, is this a load of BS?

It also says after removing the bad alternator that you should unsnap the trans cooling lines and push them to the side.

I dont see any cooling lines anywhere near the alternator?? Is this more bull****?

Re: Alternator Replacement

I just unhooked the battery,the belt and unbolted it.

Haynes sometimes doesn't know there @ss from a hole in the ground.

Look at the pics of the LS1 intake(they are from a truck)

Re: Alternator Replacement

okay, thanks, I'm going to try it myself, crazy haynes, but my experience is when you dont know what you're doing and ignore stuff in the manual next thing you know parts on springs start flying out.
