First, this should be done on a cool engine due to the risk of scalding, as the cooling system needs to be drained. Remove the fan impeller and fan clutch with a 32MM fan wrench (left hand thread) release the tensioner bolt (pop the cover off to access the bolt head, it's a Torx T-60) and lay the tensioner roller to one side, remove the bolts retaining the alternator and remove the electrical connections, disconnect upper radiator hose to ease removal. A residual amount of coolant will be present when the alt. Is removed. Also, disconnect the battery before repairs are attempted.
