Replacing the alternator is not that difficult however the a/c compressor needs to be removed. Since the system is under pressure and filled with refrigerant special equipment is need to properly evacuate and recharge the system. You can have a shop do that part of the job then when your done with the replacement they can reinstall the refrigerant that was removed. I will send over the procedures.
