1.Disconnect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt in a counterclockwise direction with a 10mm socket wrench. Disconnect the terminal nut on the alternator by turning it counterclockwise with an open-ended wrench. Store the terminals away from the battery.
Disconnect the Intrigue's serpentine fan belt by pressing on the tension pulley arm firmly then working the belt out from underneath the idle pulley. Release the tension pulley arm so the belt will have enough slack to be removed from the alternator pulley wheel.
Remove the mount bolts by turning the nuts counterclockwise, holding the bolt head with a socket wrench. Slide the bolts out of the mount arms. Replace the alternator with a new unit by positioning it into the mount arms and sliding the bolts through the mount holes. Tighten all nuts securely.
Replace the drive belt by wrapping the belt around the alternator pulley wheel then pressing on the tension arm to slide the belt back underneath the idle pulley. Release the arm and the belt will tighten to an automatic adjustment.
Reconnect the alternator's wiring harness connection by placing the terminal over the connection bolt and securing the nut clockwise with a small wrench. Reconnect the battery by turning the terminal bolt clockwise with a 10 mm socket.
