Hello,

In order to replace the alternator, you will have to lift the vehicle and secure it with jack stands. Then take off the passenger side front wheel. And disconnect the tie rod end on that side. This will allow you to access the alternator.

I have attached the alternator replacement as well as the drive belt instructions below.

Please let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
