Changing an Alternatordissconect the battery cables........take off the serpentine belt remove the air cleaner.....drain the coolant.......remove the retaining bolts to the pully and water pump which is going to be about 5 bolts on the water pump.......reomove water pump....and scrape gasket off....reverse the order as you put it back on........to bleed the air out of the coolant system...there are 2 valves on the it....one sho8uld be on the the thermostat housing....and the other on a by pass line....open them up and when you fill it with the coolant........and then start the car.....and there should be a steady stream...coming out of it....

The manual says that you have to jack the car up and take off both front tires and then take of the serpentine belt and take out the coolant tank and reach threw the wheel well and undo the bolts and take off the heat shield if you have one and you also have to take the back exhuast manifold off to bring it down and out. But I have talked to some guys in the salvage yard and they said that if you jack up the car and put the body of the car on jack stands take both wheels of and then put a floor jack on the subframe and undo back bolts completely and loosen up the front bolts and then let the floor jack down it will give you enough acces to get the alternator out and put in the new one.

Depends if it is the 3.1 or 3.4. I have a 3.4L and I let the dealer do it. The car had to be raised and the engine lowered since the alternator is located on the rear of the engine towards the bottom. See question regarding the 1995 Cutlass Supreme . Same applies unless you have the 3.4 version of engine.
