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.

Which feul switch is for the sensor for the 2005 Saturn relay

ok, your other question was too vague or you posted that question by accident without the specifics

this fuse for your fuel pump for your 2005 Saturn Relay minivan is in your owners manual, i'll link a pdf version in case you don't have one in the glovebox

page 5-12 shows you where the fusebox is under-the-hood. you want this one vs the other one inside the passenger compartment.

goto page 5-100 for the diagram of the fuse locations. you should also have this same diagram printed on the fusebox cover.

fuel pump fuse is postion #2 on that diagram
fuel pump relay is next to the horn relay

I have a 2005 saturn relay that vibrates when I brake and is really bad when braking on the highway.

Sounds to me like your brake rotors are warped. I would suggest replacing your pads and rotors.

Altinator belt

The belt, most likely is shot...just get it replaced. Your car comes equipped with a "tensioner" pulley that keeps the belt tight all the time. Unless you have mechanical experience, I really do NOT recommend trying this job at home...Just DON'T GO TO THE DEALERSHIP!
Good Luck
