I see it's been a week since you posted this question. Did you get it handled? I just looked at my '93 Dynasty and I'm not sure what the problem is. Do you have the 3.3L engine? My alternator comes off with two bolts, and the power steering reservoir is not in the way.
The Nippendenso alternator is extremely reliable, but if you diagnosed it as defective, the most likely cause is worn brushes. The brush assembly can be replaced without removing the alternator from the engine. The first one is a little tricky, but the second one is easy.
Holler back if you're having problems yet.
