Here's a link to the alternator diagram:

Instructions:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Rotate the drive belt tensioner counterclockwise and remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the right lower splash shield.
  5. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness locators from the alternator splash shield.
  7. Detach the alternator wiring connector.
  8. Remove the positive cable nut.
  9. Remove the alternator splash shield and the alternator.
Here's a link to a website to put the serpentine back on, just insert the year,make,model, and engine size to get the "Routing Diagram" for your car.
