Need help on this too......I've got the same question after mine going out on the way home, looked under the hood, and thought I'd purchased a foreign car, looks like a pain in the a$$ getting to that!!! Anyone with an easy way on this?????

EDIT: I just changed the alternator on my 2001 sonoma. I would imagine that they are similar. I had a 2.2L engine that included an AC compressor. You'll need 13mm and 15mm wrenches. Smaller wrenches will work better. Youll need to take off the large plastic air connector shroud that goes from the air filter. The radiator hose is in the way, but it can be pushed out of the way. Remove the passenger front tire for easier access to the rubber access flaps behind the wheel. Make sure you have some help with the belt tensioner.

Good luck. Youll need it.
