If you have limited / no mechanical knowledge leave this to an Auto Technician.
This a relatively easy job.
Undo the alterantor lock nut (12mm ring spanner / socket wrench)
Undo the alternator adjustment bolt almost fully (Either 10mm / 12mm wrench)
Get under the car and loosen the main alterantor bolt using a 14mm wrench. Just loosen enough to move alternator, it is not to be removed.
Pull alterantor forward to slacken belt / remove belt.
Replacement is the opp of the above.
Ensure the MAX. deflection at the middle of the belt is only 12mm (1/2") after all redfitting is done.
Failure to have it this tight will wear it out very quickly!!

There is pressure...you have to remove the rear seat cushion,then remove the service cover and then detach the fuel pump harness connector.Start the car and allow it to run until the engine stalls.Turn the key to off position.Then disconnect the negative battery cable, attach the fuel pump connector, and install the access cover. Now place shop rags or towels around the fitting that is being disconnected. Loosen the filter feed pipe flare nut on the bottom of the filter.Seperate the flare nut from the filter. If equiped, remove and discard the gakets. remove the mounting bolts and remove the filter.if necessary remove the filter bracket. To install: install the filter to it's bracket only finger tight. Make sure the flow arrow is in the right direction. Make sure new O rings are installed prior to installation. Insert the filter feed pipe to the lower connection of the filter and manually screw in the main pipe's fare nut. While holding the fuel filter nut with a back-up wrench, tighten the banjo bolt to 22 ft pounds and tighten the flare nut to 25 with a back-up wrench on the nut. tighten the filter mounting bolts to 10 ft. pounds. Connect negative battery cable. turn key on to pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks. If repairs on the fuel system are needed remember to release the pressure before opening the fuel system. Hope this helps. Good luck!

It sounds to me like the ICM ( Idle control motor )

Testimonial: "I am in the process of this... changing the ICM, I ordered one from Ebay at 100 dollars (cost range from 250 to 350) BUT the gasket was not included."
First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.
Alternator Belt Removal
6. Rotate the adjuster bolt clockwise until the belt is tight like it was before you removed it.
7. Tighten the lock bolt.
8. Install the new alternator belt
9. Rotate the adjuster bolt clockwise until the belt is tight like it was before you removed it.
10. Tighten the lock bolt.
11. enjoy life
