it is located on the bottom right if you are in front of the truck. make sure that you remove the battery cable the positive side go to the starter and the alternator before you do anything else. You will need to remove all of the drive belts (A/C, power steering, then alt belt). You will need to jack the truck up in the front and secure it on jackstands. Remove the 3 wires on the back of the alternator (2 10mm nuts and one plug connector). Then there are three bolts to hold the alternator. One on top in the back, one on the bottom in the front and one on top in the front (assessable from the top).

Pull the alt loose. You may have to remove your sway bar to get it out.

In is reverse of out.

Make sure you take you battery to get it charge up. Autozone- O' Reilly's can chage the battery up.

Loosen the tensioner bolt on your 1997 Kia alternator. Move the alternator to the left. The alternator belt will become loose and can be replaced.
