It would appear that I may need to disconnect the two auto transmission pipes that connect to the oil cooler/radiator to allow me to remove a faulty alternator from my car. I have managed to take the alternator off but these two pipes do not allow me to remove it from the car. Can I simply disconnect these pipes or is the transmission fluid pressurised? Assuming that it isn't pressurised, once I have replaced the alternator and reconnected the pipes, how do I top up the transmission fluid? Can anyone please help out here? Any other suggestions for getting the alternator out of the car?
