This will take you between 2-3 hours to do! I will suggest to buy 2000-2003 Neon Haynes repair Manuel You will need a 10mm wrench a 10mm,13mm, 14mm, & 15mm deep and regular sockets (1/4, 5/8, & 3/4 ratchets) a jack and stands PB Blaster 1: disconnect the negative battery cable. 2: loosen the upper alternator adjusting bolt and mounting bolt nut. 3: loosen the right front wheel lug nuts, raise the car and then remove the right front wheel. 4: remove the right front accessory drive belt splash shield. 5: loosen the lower alternator bolt. 6: remove the alternator belt. 7: disconnect the electrical connectors from the alternator (I suggest to wait on this). 8: remove the upper adjusting bolt and nut then the lower bolt & nut. 9: remove the lower alternator mounting 3 bolts. at this point turn the alternator sideways and remove the wires (push the red tab down until it slides and wiggle the connector). 10 : remove the alternator for under the car (this will take some time to get it out) before putting the new alternator in spray the lower bolt and nut with PB Blaster then the upper mounting nut bolt and adjusting bolt (it will make it easier to install).
