Hi Dave Dillen,

Thank you for the donation.

This is a straight forward job with no tricks involved.
Disconnect battery negative terminal.
Disconnect the wireharness coupler and main terminal.
Loosen adjuster bolt and pull on alternator belt to gain access for removing the belt.
Remove the holding and adjuster bolt and alternator can be taken out.
Reverse procedure for installation and adjust belt tension accordingly.

You're welcome.

The alternator bracket distance is equipped with a floating bush. Use a bar and hammer to tap the bush to enlarge the bracket distance to allow easier installation of the alternator onto its seat. That would save you the trouble of trying to wiggle the alternator onto its seated position.
