Disconnect the battery

Remove the air snorkel and upper half of the air box. You may have to remove the engine cover to get at the clamp for the air snorkel at the throttle body.

You will see the serp belt tensioner on the drivers side of the engine. In the center of the pulley will be a bolt head. use the appropriate sized socket and ratchet to rotate the tensioner using the bolt head. Once the tension is off the belt it can be removed from the alternator pulley. You do not need to remove the entire belt.

Remove the three bolts holding the alternator to the bracket. A 15mm socket and possible a swivel should to the trick.

Remove the plug in connector from the alternator and remove the nut holding the battery cable to the backside of the alternator.

Make sure the new alternator is the same amperage, has the same mounting brackets and the same pulley size and the same number of groove. Essentially make sure it looks identical to the old one.

Then reinstall. It should take you about an hour tops. Good luck!

Find the tension pulley. Use 1/2" drive socket to loosen the belt. Disconnect the battery cables. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove the three alternator bolts and remove the alternator. Replace with new alternator and reverse the process. Make sure the belt is tight when finished.
