Its kinda hard and takes some time.. dont knwo the specifics but i did it and you have to take off the belt that goes to the alt by losening the tensioner pulley i think its an 8 or 10 mm then disconnect the batter neg cable (black) and undo all wiring from alt. then remove hold down bolts and re-verse procedure to install, might be a good time to change alt belt too and make sure its tight but not too tight, about 1/4 inch play when pushing down on it
