They do not have a step by step. If you have mechanical skills you should be just fine. It looks by the pic you may have to go in from the bottom. Or, some vehicles have a removal panel in the fender well area that gives you access to all. I would look there....if so remove tire and press.
It also looks like you may have spacers so be careful to see what order they are.
I am giving you info for a EX model....is yours the EX or LX?
Also please let me know anyway the size of your engine in liter.

1. Place the alternator and insert a support bolt (Do not insert a nut this time.)
2. After pushing the alternator forward, count that how many spacers (a spacer thickness : 0.198 mm) should be inserted between the alternator front leg and front case as shown in "A".
3. After inserting spacers, insert and tighten a nut securely.
