1. Remove battery terminals and secure them away from the battery posts using nylon wire ties.
1a. Fine some comfortable eye glasses (clear or yellow) and keep them on. There are plenty of opportunities to get debris in your eyes during this procedure.
2. Spray "PB Blaster" (loosens bolts) on two bolts that secures alternator.
3. Jack-up vehicle on side to access alternator. Use a jackstand to support.
4. Using a 10mm open-ended wrench, loosen the bolt that swings the alternator. Screwing the bolt "in" or toward the engine will allow play to increase in the alternator belt. Loosen the 12mm bolt slightly next to the 10mm bolt (approximately 1.5" toward engine).
5. Continue to loosen 10mm bolt until there is enough slack in the belt to remove the belt from the alternator pulley.
6. Remove belt. It may be possible to remove belt without removing fan faring. Maybe not. If not, you will need to remove plastic fairing. If you must remove fair, go below fan fairing and disassemble connectors that hold together pieces of fan fairing. Carefully remove.
7. Install alternator fan from above.
8. Check that alternator belt is on all tracks (from below with a flashlight), and slowly tighten.
9. Secure 10mm and 12mm bolts. Recheck tightness.
10. Reassemble battery connection and run vehicle at idle for about 5 minutes. Check belt for proper tension.
11. CAREFULLY check tension of belt. Or disassemble battery connections and re-check belt tension.
12. Reassemble fan fairing (if not already assembled), re-connect battery terminals, and have a nice day. :-)

OK, you probably should have a lift if it is not on top. If on top, then you are in luck. Here we go...
Before you disconnect the battery, make sure you have a memory saver which connects to your OBDII connector, or you have the security code for your radio or you don't care if you lose all you memories on your radio AND there is no security code needed to make the radio work later once the battery is reconnected.
OK. Disconnect the battery.
Next, get a powerful flashlight or shop light and luminate the your work area.
Third. Put a large soft towel on your car as not to scratch the finish with your body.
WARNING : Never lean you weight on and area without knowing what it is! For example, alot of techs and mechs lean on a radiator, only to break the plastic radiator only to cause even more damage!
Next, find the way to loosen the tensioner to remove the alternator belt. Usually there are (2) 10MM screws. One loosens the tension, the second is the longer, threaded adjustment screw. Always loosen the smaller screw first!
Ok, you got the belt off. Now, there should be a 13MM or 15MM bolt that needs tp be removed. You need the lift for this one because the passenger side tire and splash guard needs to be removed to get to these (sometimes). Also, you may need swivel ratchets. The best on the market are my MATCO they have a set for about $400 that make this type of work a breeze, as long as you have a lift and patience.
This job should take about 1 hour to do. Do not oevrtighten or undertighten the adjustment screw when putting back together. If possible, I actually count the number of turns I make to undo an adjustment screw, so I turn it exactly the same number of times when I am reinstalling. Good Luck.
