Disconnect the battery and remove the serpentine belt. Remove the rear alternator bracket. Disconnect the wires from the alternator. Remove the alternator bolts from the front bracket and remove the alternator. Pay attention to which bolts come from which holes. Install your new alternator in the reverse order. Snug the bolts, but don't overtighten them. If you need bolt torque values or run into any problems, write back.

Good luck and hope this FixesYa.
