Hey MIAH61068,

Replacing the alternator is not too bad of a job when you put your mind to it. Here is a guide and some diagrams to help you get the job done.

You will need to jack the car up and get under it

Hope the picture helps.

If you remove the oil filter and oil pressure switch, it may make it easier to get to lower generator bolt.

Remove it through the bottom of the vehicle. Also, you can gain access to it through the inner fender (passanger side).
