Best Answer

Loosen the serpentine belt by removing one bolt and loosening the other on the belt tensioner located in the top middle of the belt position. Remove the serpentine belt from the alternator. Next remove the 3 bolts holding in the alternator and unplug the wiring harness attached. The alternator should now be able to come free with a little coaxing depending on its condition. Repeat in backwards order when installing a new alternator.
