First, you'll have to remove the air box over the throttle, which is done with a ratchet by removing the 10 mm bolts. You'll also have to widen the hose clamp to take the box off. Once off, plug the throttle with a clean rag to prevent dirt from gettin into it. Once done, grab a light, and look to the left of the throttle. You should be able to identify the alternator by looking at the new one. Once found, you'll need to identify the right size wrench/socket to use to take off the bolts (1/2 inch) . Look at the new one to see how the bolts go in. The bolt heads are located on the inside of the two bolt tabs. They're really tight!!, so be sure to put a lot of pressure on the wrench to loosen them. Once loosened, remove the wire hookups on the back of the alternator. Then fully take the bolts out, the two in back and one in front. You'll have to hold back wires to get the alternator out, so it is best to have at least two people working on this. You'll also have to slip the serpentine belt off first by using a 15mm socket on the tensioner (you'll get to it easier by removing the passenger side tire). Once out, follow the above in reverse, putting the serpentine on last to replace. If it is a remanufactured alternator, you might have to take the bushing out and use the old one. You can do this by putting a bolt through it with a large socket on one side and a nut on the end, then tightening. Do the same to take out the old one, and to put it back in. You will also want to replace the battery at the same time, if you don't it will die very soon.
