I used the round holes (as opposed to using the 50 or so thin slits used for cooling), and stuck the screwdriver in between the thick parts of the rotor, so there was no chance of anything breaking; the two parts that pressure was applied to (the thick-rimmed round hole, of which there are about 4 around the whole alternator, and the steel rotor parts) were far stronger than any pressure I could have applied with my 1.5ft-long breaker bar. Just make sure that you get rid of any loose play in the direction you're turning, so there's no impact on the alloy housing (the most fragile part). Should've taken a pic
