Are there any steps on how to change the alternator on a 1198 ford contour?
You go to a mechanic.
Ford Contour was created in 1995.
It's built into the alternator. If it goes bad, unless you're pretty knowledgeable about such things, rather than try to take the alternator apart and fix it yourself I would recommend you replace the alternator.
loosen the serpretine belt tension and remove the two bolt that hold the alternator
