There are 2 types of Alt for your car .The lower Amp has a Plug in the high Amp has a screw in for electrical connection.
There are 2 bolts to hold the Alt in the engine. Need to locate them first and losen them up.
Losening the tension is a bit tricky. There is 1 large bolt I don't remember size maybe 17mm between the compressor and the power steering pump.
Need to loose it first before attemping the top bold near the Power steering reservoir, other wise you will strip the thread and this is a lot of work to replace.
After you done all of that in order, you can completely take off the 2 bolt at the Alt. Pull the top bolt first so the ALt can be Pivoted to the bottom one, then one hand to hold the Alt while the other to pull off the bottom bolt.
Put in the new Alt in reverve order.
Good luck

Why does a battery sign means on a 2008 c class

1) Perform a battery voltage check. Should be 12 + volts min. 2) Perform a Alternator output test. 3) Have a auto repair shop perform tests, unless you have the tools and know how.

I have a 2006 mrecedes r class. The alernator reads 12.5 on the test meter, the tech said I needed a new one, and after putting it on, it still is hesitate to start. What is the problem?

Yes, if the alternator only has an output of 12.5, then it is faulty.
Hesitating to start however, may not be a related issue.
Check the battery voltage. It should be around 12.5 volts or over at rest. If lower than that after charging, then the battery is likely in need of replacement. You have a four year old plus battery there, so there is a chance it is already close to the end of its useful life.
