    I have a feeling my alternator is bad and I opened up my fuse box and there's a clicking sound I think coming from the alternator relay
    One how do you remove this relay
    Two does this happen when the alternator goes bad or is it just the relay.

    Electrical is not my thing, but I know some relays have a slight tick, its how they function. I don't know what would be considered too much though...

    Im not really sure about your problem but if its a relay in the fusebox, then just pull it straight and it will come right out. Some relays tick becaused they are being opened and closed by magnetism (magnetic relay) and some open and close from electricity energizing them
