John Mc :

Sorry, I had to take down christmas lights off the house.

John Mc :

This is actually a pretty easy job on your car.

First disconnect the battery. Now remove the air chamber that goes to the top of the throttle body. Now use a wrench to loosen the belt tensioner and remove the belt. Next remove the three or four bolts that mount the alternator to the engine. Now pull up the alternator and disconnect the wiring. The alternator comes straight up and out.
