First disconnect the negative battery cable, then unplug the diodes from the alternator, (should be the only plug). Next unscrew the battery cable (waring, if u did not connect the negative battery cable this wire it hot at all times, so you can get shocked if its still connected) then remove the belt, remove the bolts and it wil come out, just put the new one in, bolts in, all wires back to the same place and the belt back on.

unbolt it
