first you need to jack up your car and put it on jack stands, then remove the passenger side wheel, then loosen the two bolts on the back of the power steering pump and the pivot bolt so you can remove the accessory drive belt. Then you can loosen the two bolts on the front of the alternator, then if you look at the alternator through the wheel well on the left side of the alternator there is a bracket, on the backside of the bracket there is an adjuster bolt loosen it and then you can remove the alternator belt.

Remove the alternator from below the vehicle. 1. Disconnect the positive battery cable. 2. Disconnect the 4P or 3P connector from the alternator. 3. Remove the terminal nut and the WHT wire from the B terminal. 4. Remove the adjusting bolt and through bolt nut, then remove the alternator belt from the pulley. 5. Pull out the alternator through bolt, then remove the alternator. 6. If necessary, remove the mount bracket bolts, and the upper and lower mount brackets. 7. Adjust the alternator belt tension after installation. The deflection should be between 6mm to 8.5mm for a new belt.

take a 3/8" ratchet, insert it into the tension pulley (there will be a square slot on the outside), turn it until the belt loosens up enogh to pull the belt off the alternator pulley. unplug the wire that goes into the back of the alternator, and remove the bolts of the bracket, reverse to install. Thanks to the person above who answered this for me. This has been done. I started my car after puting the new one in and the light came on. It is a code 41 (field generator not switching properly). What exactly does this mean and what possibilities could be causing this? I did have the battery cables off while I was installing the new alternator. I am afraid of letting the car run for the battery to charge back up not knowing what else may be going on with the code 41.
