I just gave somebody the written answer to this same question. i do not know about the visual. But if you know what the alternator looks like , you can fix it.

  • Disconnect and label the wiring harness connections to the alternator (Painters Masking tape works very well for labeling Automotive wiring).Label the wires with a marker so you will place them back exactly as you took them off.
  • Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
  • Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
  • Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
  • While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
  • Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To reinstall the alternator, reverse the removal procedure.
To adjust the belt tension, leave the pivot and adjusting arms loose. tighten the belt to about a half inch pressing with your finger.

I have a 2002 dodge stratus rt i just changed out the altanator for a new one and now the car turns over but will die as soon as you take your foot off the throtle

Disconnect the battery for about fifteen minutes. Your pcm needs to clear out so it can get fresh readings off the sensors. Sometimes the idle speed control sensor gets a little squirrelly when you play with the electrical systems on dodges. Good luck.
