First there is a long pivot bolt at the bottom of the alternator, then there is another short bolt at the top, remove theses bolts and disconnect the wiring to the alternator, always disconnect the battery before doing anything to the electrical system of any car.

I have the same Jeep model 5.2L V8, to replace the alternator, check the next procedure...

Once the determination is made that the alternator is at fault, off vehicle testing can be used to determine the defective component inside the alternator.
See Figures 1 through 11
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt.
  3. If necessary, remove any splash shielding for easier access to the alternator.

Fig. 3: View of the alternator electrical connections-(A) battery positive, (B) field terminals, (C) wire harness hold down, (D) ground terminal

  1. Tag and disengage the alternator wiring.
It may be necessary to remove the alternator and mounting bracket from the vehicle as an assembly.
  1. If equipped, remove the front alternator assembly mounting plate.
