Hi, you have to remove the power steering pump to get the alternator out. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive cable.
Remove the power steering pump.
Drain the fluid from the system as follows:
Disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir.
Start the engine and allow it to run at fast idle. Turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Shut off the engine immediately; don't run the pump without fluid.
Reattach the hose.
Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt.
Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove the pump.

Nothing is fast,but could be easy with the know how and right tools.Does it have a serpentine belt,thats one big belt that covers everything that turns...or 2 or 3 separate belts,,,,,,,,,serpentine belt is easy and faster.
Compare your rear knuckles to a non 4WS. You have to remove the steering extension shaft leading back there as well as the rear tie rods. The rear knuckles have to be locked so they don't steer. Might need to swap some of the components from a junkyard 88 89 90 91 Prelude.
i'm not 100 percent possitive but i assume you will have to loosen the tensioner to serpetine belt and it should have a adjustment and just loosen the adjustment. if thats the case you can jump the power steering belt off and back on by prying it with a screw driver and rotating the crankshaft pully
