remove air intake, filter etc, remove 6 bolts on fan cover and remove fan cover, then slip off belt(i dunno how to do this part) remove screws holding alternator, disconnect..

somewhat accurate but not totally 1 disconnect battery 2 remove air filter box and set a side

3 release pressure from the belt tensioner with either a johnson bar and i believe 15 mil 3/4 socket be careful loaded pretty strong

4 onto the hard part three mount bolts 12 and 13 mil as well as 10 mil for the positive connection there is also a 2 wire plug that will pull off the alt there is a small gm clip holding this in place the lower alt bolt also has a nut on the back side of it which you can reach by hand to stop it from turning ,Finally there is a bolt thst mounts your dipstick to the rear of the alt and block this one is for little hands may be easier with the dog house off ,, hope this helps a bit more
