On a 2.2L engine, do the following: (1) Disconnect the battery terminals!!! (2) Remove wire from the air intake duct by the air filter. Loosen the three hose clamps on the air duct, pop out the two plastic holding pins, and remove the upper part of the air duct. (3) Remove the air filter box. (4) Drain the radiator until the level is below the upper radiator hose. Put a rubber or plastic tube on the drain outlet at the radiator drain spigot, and catch the anti-freeze in a clean, sealable, container. (A clear tube works nice, so that you can see how it is flowing). You can put the anti-freeze back in when all done. Do NOT leave the anti-freeze where children or pets can get at it!!! (5) Remove the upper radiator hose. (6) Remove the bottom part of the air intake duct. (7)Remove the serpentine belt. Be SURE to use a correct tool on the tensioner pulley to remove the belt. (A long handled 3/8" torque wrench fitted directly into the provided hole on the tensioner works well). This would be a good time to replace the serpentine belt with a new one. (8) Remove the 3 bolts that hold the alternator. The front right one (driver's side) is very easy. The left front one requires lots of small strokes with a box wrench. The back one is reached from underneath with a socket wrench. There is a small rubber flap in the fender well that you can reach your hand through to get at this bolt very easily when you are lying under the vehicle. (9) Remove the 2 wires from the alternator. (10) Reverse procedure to install the replacement alternator.
