First, the alt is located low on the engine near the firewall. As a result, work has to be done from both the top and bottom of the vehicle. When under the vehicle, make sure the vehicle is securly supported. Here is are the directions I was able to find.
With the ignition OFF, disconnect the negative battery cable.
Unplug the alternator wire harness connector and remove the terminal nut.
Remove the alternator adjusting bolt; loosen the nut on the mount bolt.
Swing the alternator towards the engine; remove the belt.
Remove the bolts holding the alternator bracket to the engine and remove the alternator with the bracket.
Install the alternator and bracket. Once in position with the bolts finger-tight, install the belt. Tighten the mounting bracket bolts and the alternator mount (pivot) bolt to 33 ft. Lbs. (45 Nm).
Let me know if you have other questions.
