Find the belt tensioner.There is a square hole to insert a breaker bar.Rotate the tensioner to relieve tension and remove the belt.There is a sticker with a picture showing how it goes back on.If you can find it changing it is straight forward. Just remember to disconnect the battery negative terminal.

Do yourself a favor. When buying a New Alternator have them check it before taking it home? I had a bad incident that I ended up with, 3 bad alternators in one day, 3 different stores. Last store check it before I took it home and everything was good. I ended up changing it 3 times. Make sure they also change the pulley.
