Hello, I'm Danny.

I suggest that you should have your alternator load tested to see if the output is sufficient. Auto parts stores will test for free. Here are a few tutorials showing how to remove and replace the serpentine belt to gain access to the alternator as well as how to remove and replace the alternator:

I've attached picture steps below on how to remove and replace both the serpentine belt and alternator on your car for proper testing and replacement. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
