If it's like my 96 eclipse then the alternator is on the back of the motor bottom passenger side... hard to get to but if you jack the car up about a foot you should have a decent amount of space back there... just disconnect the wires and unbolt the alternator... make sure you unbolt the one on the adjuster side first so nothing pops out so to speak

ANswer:

Depends on the motor, on the 4G63T its on the Diverside under the Power Steering pump. theres a tensioner bolt on the bottom and a bolt in the bracket (12MM) and a bolt on the bottom that is just a guide pin. once you loosen the bolt in the bracket and the tensioner the belt comes off then pull the pin, the electrical connector and you should be ready to install the new (please remember first step is diconnect the battery!)
