I need some help I have 2005 sunfire and I would like to replace the alternator. I know the blower has to come off. So I know I need a blower gasket do I need anything else? Since the blower is off should the hoses and belts be replaced? Thanks for your time
Are you planning on an lsj alternator since you're supercharged? If not i strongly suggest it. They're more expensive but spin the right away and make more amps. Some parts stores will take the l61 alt as a core for an lsj too, just ask.
Even with the blower off its still not a fun job but you can get it from there with patience. You can re use that gasket it's metal and rubber, not just paper. As for changing anything else out, that's up to you but there's not really anything major that absolutely needs done while you're in there.
