Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!

Loosen the belts, unbolt the old alternator, bolt the new one on, tighten the belts back up.

It is on the rear lower of the belt side of the engine. You can find the alternator in the back by the firewall on the passenger side of the car. It is best to put the car up on ramps since it is not reachable from the top. You can follow the belts and one of the belts will lead to the back that is attached to the alternator.

I can't really say for sure about a '98, but I have a 99, and you just loosen the bolts on the alternator, move it forward, and switch old and new belts. Push the alternator back (with a rod) and retighten the bolts.

Begin by removing the alternator belt. Remove the wiring harness from the back of your alternator. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new Cadillac alternator.
