The simple version is this:

Disconnect the negative battery terminal
Make a diagram of the routing of your serpentine belt if there isn't a picture under the hood.
Locate the spring loaded tensioner pulley , and using a breaker bar or large ratchet, rotate it to take the tension off of the serpentine belt, then slip the belt loose off of the tensioner. disconnect the electrical connectors off of the alternator. Unbolt the alternator in two places.
To install, reverse the process

Make sure your battery is fully charged before starting the car.

How to remove a power steering pressure hose on a 1999 Mercury Sable

You have to discon the battery cable before you start. Remove the coolant expansion tank. Remove the drivebelt and alternator if you have an OHV V6. Raise the vehicle on jack stands. Place a drain pan below the pump. From below, remove the splash shield and discon any brackets or ties that hold the hose to the body. After draining, you may have to replace the pwr steering fluid filter, located in the fluid line, then replace the fluid. A crows-foot wrench may be necessary to remove some hose fittings. This is a job for a mechanic with a power lift to be honest. Whatever you do, be careful not to contaminate the power steering fluid. Bleed the system after replacing the hose. The pressure hose is held in place by threads and not a clamp as the other hose has. Get yourself the Haynes repair manual 36075 '96 thru 2005 Ford Taurus & Merc Sable. It has a detailed step by step description of this procedure. Good Luck
