Question about 2005 Saturn Relay
This may be difficult for what i am assuming is a front wheel drive vehicle with a 6 cylinder engine. There is probably not a lot of space to work.
1. Let engine cool down. (no need to worry about bumping into something that may be very hot)
2. Remove belt from alternator by loosening the tensioner pulley.
3. Unhook any wires or plugs connected to the alternator.
4. Unscrew any bolts and remove alternator.
5. Replace alternator with the new one and put bolts back on.
6. Reconnect any plugs or wires that were disconnected to the right place.
7. Loosen tensoioner pulley and replace belt.
This will be harder than it seems on these directions. Difficulty depends on location of the alternator, space to work in the engine compartment, how easily the bolts come out, and of course experience. Good luck.
