Two ways. First one... remove the air pump, remove the A/C and discharge the system, and then the alternator is right there and easy to get out. Takes about 4 or 5 hours this way and an A/C recharge. Second one.. The right way, requires patience. From underneath, slacken and remove the belt. Remove the adjustor bracket. Loosen the Power Steering hoses from the lower crossmember, and there is a plastic strap that hold the hoses you can't see that will probably break on the top of the cossmember.... no biggie. Now the hard part, remove the bolts on top of the alternator, 1/2" socket and wrench. There are two, front and back. The thing falls out.. sometimes the swaybar will need to be loosened on just the drivers side. Install is the reverse, with some patience. About 3 hours.
