How do you replace the alternator on a 1997 Pontiac Firebird?

Hello, I have a 1997 Firebird V-6. It is right on top. Just remove the serpentine belt from the alternator, unplug the electrical connection on the back of the alternator, remove the mounting bolts and install the new alternator. I have not replaced one in my bird yet, but I checked the Hanes manual and it is the same. I am not a professional mechanic, but I have replaced a few in my lifetime. Good luck. John
