I have a 1998 Rodeo and just replaced the alternator. If I may make a suggestion, pay someone to do this. It took two of us 4 hours to replace. I am not a certified mechanic, but I know a few things about cars. I thought that I would replace it myself and save a little money! Big mistake. It is EXTREMELY hard to get too and there is NO room to work. Once you get it out, you would think that the new one would just slip back in place, not the case. I will take the car in and have it done next time. To answer your question though, yes you need to go at it from under the right side of the engine. you will need to go from the top to loosen some of the bolts. Hope this helped! Good luck!

Ya it took me a half hour to do this by myself. Like jboysgsxr750 said, remove the passenger side wheel and the serpintine belt. The lower alternator bolt is easier to remove from the bottom and the other from the top. Remove the radiator hose bracket so you can move hose around and that also gives you more room to remove top alternator bolt. Its not a bad idea to disconnect radiator hose form the top....makes it easier to pull out alternator. Also, i found it easier to disconnect electrical connectors from under the passenger side wheel well.
