I have replaced my alternator on my Z without a lift, and it can be done...getting it out is the east part...its getting it back on thats the killer..more or less the hardest part is getting the top of the alternator to fit back inbetween the mounts and getting the bolt through..this is the 2nd time ive had to take it out, and im stuck at this part again....GL!

there is a small pully on the top belt that has a long bolt on top loosen left turn and the pulley will go down . the alt .has 1bolt to pivit and a nut to tighten an hold .you will see when you look under car.
first jack up car then look on the passenger side of the car to find the alternator. there is a bracket right next to the crank pully going to the alternator. it is only one bolt. undo it. there is i believe a 15 mill bolt on top of the alternator with a lock nut on the back almost out of reach from the bottom. undo the bolt and the alternator will drop down into your hands. there is the tensioner bolt to tighten the belt on the bottom of the alternator you can loosen it up to make things easier on you. when the alternator is loose pull out gently as there is one clip connection and two ground bolts on the back of the unit itslef. undo all of these and slide your alt out the front. it may be easier to remove the clutch fan on the water pump pully first. (4 nuts)
