In order to remove the alternator you must first remove the belt. The alternator is held in place by two bolts and one will require a 13 mm socket to remove it and the other one requires a 13 mm wrench to remove the nuts while holding the long bolt with either another 13 mm wrench or socket. The alternator takes some force to remove it and pry bar might help. PRECAUTION: When using a pry bar do not use a pulley as a pivot for the pry bar, you will ruin that pulley!!!

You must unbolt the engine from the engine mount and jack the engine up to obtain clearance. You must do this for both the alternator/AC belt as well as with the secondary Supercharger belt.
autozone.com has free online manuals, i have gotten fuse box diagrams and component locations etc from them and they tell you step by step how to do it Bad answer! There is no manual available at Auto Zone. I have a '95 Buick Riviera and when my water pump went out I had to remove the belts, alternator, and most everything that was around it to replace it. Good luck!
