I'm trying to remove the alternator. All is fine and good except I can't get the output cable off. The terminal itself is a stud with a hex section. This part fastens into the alternator. Then the cable lug slips over it and a nut goes on to secure. When I tried to loosen the nut, the whole terminal stud turns. This is a big problem because the cable goes with it since it is sandwiched in between the nut and terminal.
There isn't enough room to get any sort of wrench in my tool box onto the hex portion of the terminal stud to hold it still while I loosen the little 10mm nut. The terminal lug on the cable has a larger outside diameter than the hex portion and the alternator body guards it pretty well. Anyone had this happen? How did you stop the terminal from spinning to break the nut loose?
