HELP: Alternator bracket... thingy... (flange?)

Hi guys,

This may be more simple than it seems, but I can't figure it out and I'm having trouble finding any topics about it on the Internet.

I'm in the process of changing my alternator in my 1994 Civic VX. I got the old one out, no problem. However, the new one is not going in and I'll steal someone's picture from the internet to try to show why:



See the Bottom Alternator Bolt, labeled above? Well that piece of metal it's going into that separates it from the actual bracket is the piece I'm having trouble with. I need that piece to slide out a millimeter or two so I can fit the new alternator in, before I bolt it all back together again. Trouble is, I can't get that ring/flange/thingy to move.

It seems simple enough, yet I can't get my brain to figure out how to get it done. I wasn't able to find anything on Youtube or Google.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

File the sleeve down a little at a time until it fits. I assume fitment is off by a millimeter or 2?

if you still have your old alternator put it back in the lower bracket and use it like a pry bar to push the "pin" out a hair or you can try gently hitting with a hammer but not so much that you deform it

cbaracing--as always, you are a god among men.

Using the old alternator is a brilliant stroke. In picking up the old alternator, I noticed the alternator itself has a spacer (that's what I now understand that thing is that I was calling a "thingy") that's already in the right position, and the new alternator has one too, of course, in need of a good pounding to be in the right position (that's what she said?). Much easier to whack the alternator than the spacer in the bracket!

Alternator is in and working. Belt is squealing intermittently, but that's a much easier fix if necessary.
