Its a pain in the but. but you have to undo the engine mount and take it off. try to put something under the motor to hold it up but be carefull of the oil pan. and it should be on the backside of the motor towards the back. also take the serpentine belt off. once you do that. there should just be a couple of bolts that hole it on, undo those, the wires, and wiggle it out. be sure to disconect the battery too to prevent any shorts from your alternator. now get the alternator tested. i had one that wasn't putting out charge, i did all of this to find out it was a little transistor (i believe that's what it is called) box that sits below the intake between the firewall and the motor. i just took out that box and we haven't had any problemswith it too. it'll also save you a lot of money. just go to autozone or a place with an alternator testor. they should do it for free
