1. Disconnect the battery

2. Place a socket wrench in the belt tensioner and turn it up. This lets you slide the belt off of the alternator.

3. The alternator is held on to the engine with four bolts which need to be removed.

4. On the top of the alternator you will see a wire plug. Remove the plug and loose the bolt that is holding it in place. Then simply remove the alternator.

This is pretty easy. I am far from a mechanic but it only took me five minutes to do this.
