Have fun with that one. I have a 1991 Honda Accord Took me 4 hours to remove the POS because there are two tension bolts a bracket bolt. They are all a pain to get to except the one one the top. there was one underneath the alternator that i couldn't fit my hand to get to and i would have had to have a tool that was bent a 90 degree angle which i didnt have. I had to smash my hand to get to it. It really sucked. Maybe it will be better for you because you have a civic. Hope its not all crammed together like mine was lol

1. Disconnect Battery
2. Remove Alternator tension bolt, move belt out of the way
3. Remove Alternator pivot bolt
4. Disconnect wire clip from back of Alternator, Disconnect wires
5. Slide Alternator back towards firewall and over toward passenger side, wiggle alternator out between heater hose, this takes time and patients but it will come out.

Install in reverse order

This worked for me. Remember to safety first.
