Remove serpentine belt, by loosening tensioner(15mm box end should do it). Tensioner is located above the water pump and below alternator. Remove the three bolts from alternator mounting bracket, install new alternator, then replace the belt. I've found it easier to use a large flat screw driver as a prybar, while turning the tensioner with a wrench, to place the belt over the alternator pulley.
