Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Release the
tension on the accessory drive belt so that you can remove the drive
belt from the pulley.Take off the mounting bolt on the right side of the
alternator with a socket wrench and remove the bracket for the power
steering hose. Remove the mounting bolts on top of the alternator, the
front passenger wheel and tire assembly and the front fender splash
shield. Remove the alternator splash shield with a socket wrench and
take off the inspection cover for the torque converter. Mount a tool to
hold the flywheel so you can remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and
crankshaft pulley. Lower the alternator so you can unplug its electrical
connections. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and Oxygen
sensor connector. Remove the lower alternator mounting bolt and B+
connector nut to remove the alternator. Install the new alternator
assembly by reversing the above procedure. Use a torque wrench to
tighten the B+ connector nut to 71 inch lbs. and the lower alternator
bolt to 18 foot pounds. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 74 foot
pounds, the upper alternator bolts to 18 foot pounds and the nut for the
power steering hose bracket to 13 foot pounds
The car should be turned off it should be cool.Then follow this procedure.
Park the car on flat surface.Block the back wheels of the car from getting rolled because the front portion of the car has to be jacked up.But before doing that disconnect the black wire of battery.Its necessary for safety reasons.Then raise the car by placing jack under the cross-member.Then after this the passenger side wheel has to be removed.Once the passenger side wheel is removed you will see the belt.Locate the tensioner to remove the belt. The tensioner is located under the alternator. Loosen the bolt with a socket wrench and this will loosen tension on the belt. Take the belt off the alternator pulley and the air conditioner pulley. Unbolt and remove the tensioner to make proper space to remove the alternator. After that there are few more parts that are to be removed to remove the alternator.So remove the air conditioner ,its fitted by two bolts easily seen.Remove this bolts.No need to remove the ac wires or any ac lines.Just lift the ac unit out and then remove the alternator cable from its back.You will also have to remove a nut bolt holding the wire.So remove that nut also,this will help to loosen the alternator wire.Then carefully wiggle and pull the wiring harness to the voltage regulator at the back of the alternator.Now the alternator can be removed.But its connected to the mounting bracket.The alternator is fitted by 3 bolts on mounting bolts.Once you remove this bolts the alternator can be lifted out from the bottom of the car.--------------
This is the procedure to remove the alternator.But for no problem while fitting the new alternator,i suggest you mark the location of each part with marker so that you dont face any kind of problem while refitting this parts again.You can also take a picture of each part before removing it.so that will help for any kind of alternator problem in future also.Do it slowly ,carefully and at day time ,so this will give you exact access of the parts.---------------Thanks.Helpmech.

Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA
A 1996 Buick Lasabre is a front wheel drive (FWD) car, so the front of the motor is facing the front passenger side wheel of the car. That said, the power steering fluid reservoir should be close to the front passenger side wheel tower.
