It depends on what kind of car you have and the engine.

To replace the alternator on a 1995 Honda Civic disconnect the battery. Disconnect the wiring from the alternator. Loosen the adjustment bracket so the belt has slack. Remove the alternator belt along with the mounting hardware. Pull the alternator and replace it.

You have to find the alternator then look at where it is connected to the motor there will be a slide mechanism that you will have to loosen which will release the slack on the belt so you can get it off.

Loosen the tensioner pulley. The tensioner pulley will slide to the right. This will loosen the alternator belt. So it can be removed.

1. The first thing that you need to do is to disconnect the two wires that are connected to the back of the alternator. 2. Loosen and remove the upper bolt for the adjustment on the alternator. 3. Loosen the lower alternator bolt so that you can take the belt off of the alternator. 4. Move alternator forward so that you can remove the belt. 5. Take the lower bolt out and remove alternator from below. 6. To reinstall repeat steps 1 throw 5 in reverse.
