I'd say it depends if anything else has to be removed to get at it. Other than that, if you have the tools, you can do it. Most accessory/drive belts are easily removed nowadays because they use a spring loaded tensioner pulley. The alternator is pretty straight forward, tape the wires as you remove them one-at-a-time to show you where to put them back.
Make sure before you remove the drive belt you make a good diagram or take a picture of how it exactly goes, many people get this far and run into the problem of how to route the belt.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse spider gt won't start after I change alternator belt and steering belt when I try too start is making whyning noise it won't start

Make sure battery is good, battery terminals and cables/connectors connected to alternator correctly and belts adjusted to manufactured specifications. Check to see where the whining noise is coming from, if still present. If not the belts or pulleys it could be the starter.

I can only turn my AC on when my 2001 mitsubishi eclipse spyder 4 cylinder 2.4 liter is in motion. If I come to a stop my car shuts down, any help?

Check your alternator or your battery. Something is draining electricity in your system. this can be a number of things like a bad battery, not working alternator to generate electricity, and/or faulty wiring.

How much is it to fix the turbo on a 1998 mitsubishi eclipse?

average price to have a turbo rebuilt is about $250 but some place charge as much as $400. if your talking about taking to a regular auto repair shop to have the work done you'll probably be charged $200-250 labor and shops usually mark up the parts at least 2X what they pay for them. A performance shop may be cheaper and they can probably find you a good used turbo for cheap.

Replaced all air conditioner parts and still blows cool air NOT COLD. Guy that just replaced evaporator said it could be a sensor that needed to be reset by mitsubishi. Is this true????? this is a 2001...

no dealer has a reset for the a/c system by you mentioning that you replace everything it means the a/c compressor,air dryer,and the most important the orfice tube. if you hadnt replace the orfice tube wich converts the liquid into gas when it gets hot thats your problem.alot of mechanics wont change it as an a/c mechanic will.
