take the old one off first then put the new one on in the reverse of the old.

You need to move the overflow radiator jug out of the way, just pull up, then take off the cap of cruise control - if you have one. There are two bolts that need to be removed... the one at the top is a 14MM nut and undo that one. The other one is a 12MM bolt on the bottom and you need a flexible wrench to get at it. The exhaust probe is in the way and you will destroy it if you are not careful Last nut to losen is the tension nut below the belt. Losen this bolt a lot.

Once the two bolts are undone, use a rubber mallot and gently knock the alternator down. It will come out. Take the new alternator and slide it in. You can twist it around the belt and down or perhaps pull the belt on after... but its tight... actually a good idea to buy a new belt.

Then put in the 14MM bolt in, but don't tighten it. Put the 12MM bolt in, remember how it goes, from the exhaust probe to the cruise control. Tighten the 12MM bolt. tighten the 14MM bolt. Tighten the 10 MM tension back to where it was..... and... it should be fine.
