I recently replaced the alternator on my 99 Malibu. It is fairly easy. First loosen the belt using a 3/8 breaker bar on the belt tensioner. Using a 15mm socket, remove the bolt from the front and side plus a nut on the side/rear (use deep socket or wrench). Remove the single wire bolted to the back of the alternator and unplug the wire harness and the whole thing should be ready to remove. Installation is simply the reverse. With the right tools, it only takes 10-15 minutes.
