Yeah just complted this task. As a very novice mechanic, it still turns out it isn't much fun. I followed most of the steps per Doc Honeydew, how ever i ran into the problem stated by bruce. How ever his solution is not the only one.
there is not enough room to go from the bottom of the vehicle. I went trough the front tire and successfully completed the project. It took removing the wheel, removing the fender liner and taking the break line loose.
the real trick to it was taking the alternator out before you take out the plastic cover. There is not enough room to get the plastic cover out first and once the alternator is clear, there is plenty of room to get the cover turned properly. The same goes for putting the new one it...alternator first, cover second.
I must say again, this was not a fun project and takes way more time then it should (at least for me). Good luck.....
