Unfortunately this is a dirty job. You will need to raise the vehicle and support the front end as you will be working underneath for a portion of it.

You will need to pull the front right (passenger side) wheel. Than remove the 2 piece plastic inner fender pieces (mud guards). Be careful removing these as the locking tabs can break very easily.

Disconnect the battery.

From the right front where you removed the wheel and mud guards, you'll be looking at the bottom of the alternator which is directly under the Power Steering pump.

There is a plastic dirt shield over the back of the alternator, remove this. There are 2 bolts, one which is hard to find but working from the top down, rotate the power steering pump pulley so that it's on a hole and you can look through to the top bolt.

Remove the bolts holding it in place and lower down. Carefully remove the wires from the alternator, main battery wire (10mm?) and than a smaller one. Than you can pull the alternator out through the mud guard in the front right wheel well.

Reverse to install.

This job will take you roughly 45min - 1.5hrs.
