Learn to write and then pick up the service manual on the car. It will walk you through with easy to follow instructions.

1. First begin by disconnecting power source aka. Battery.
2. Then disconnect wiring from alternator (remember where the wires go, draw a picture if you need too.
3. Turn alternator belt tensioner counter clocke wise to release tension from belt.
4. Then remove mounting bracket bolts again remember where everything goes thats about it reverse procedure in the installation process. Good Luck.
:idea: Remember to think safety first, disconnect positive cable from battery first (+, red cable) and the negative cable (-, black cable) then reverse the order when reinstaling.
Don't ask me how to change a tire, cause i'd have to slap you :lol: just kidding.
