The alternator on your 1999 Nissan Maxima can be found on the front of the engine. The alternator will be on the right hand side of the engine.

You can find the alternator on the front, right hand side, of your engine. Remove the cables from the alternator. Remove the belt. Remove the retaining nuts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
