Disconnect the battery. Unplut the altenator, disconnecting the plug and taking off the belts. Unbolt the altenator, and bolt the new one on. Reconnect the belts, then the plug and finally reconnect the battery. Voila! You replaced the altenator!

Tools required: 7mm, 10mm, and 15mm sockets and 15mm box wrench or adjustable wrench.

Tips - for easier access, first remove the jack assembly, and the passenger side tension rod.

1. Disconnect the battery. 2. Release tension from the serpentine belt by loosing the bolt located to the left of the power steering pump (2.5L) - uses 15mm socket. 3. Belt should now easliy lift off of the alternator pully. 4. Unbolt the alternator - 15mm socket. 5. Disconnect the 5 power connectors - 7mm and 10mm sockets. 6. Remove alternator. 7. Install new alternator by reversing previous steps.

Have a new battery on hand, most likely the old one will be dead as well. Also, the serpentine belt must be VERY tight. You shouldn't be able to flip the belt over, or flex it much at all. If your engine squeals at low RPM's - tighten the belt.

I do not think so, my 89 YJ had a normal alternator belt, but my 97 TJ has a serpentine belt, so aside from any mounting differences the drive system would be different.
