What is a detailed, step-by-step way of replacing the alternator?

in Central City, IA on February 03, 2012
I only know what my altenator looks like. I have basic mechanic skills and was wondering how i could go about changing it myself with a step by step guide or detailed picture with it showing a step by step way. Or maybe if someone could give info on a site that would have what im looking for. Thanks a bunch!! -college student with a broke down car

There are two engine options for your car, my labor guide says an hour to replace I just looked at the repair instructions does not look complicated or need special tools.
There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
