First of all, "most" people say that it's not the alternator that has gone bad, it's the "Voltage Regulator" or something like that for $40. While this is true, you can usually get a nice refurbished BOSCH on ebay for around $50. Why not replace the whole thing -eh?

If you're going to do this, you might as well get all your belts changed. Belts are cheap. If your old belts don't look too bad, I will usually throw them in my trunk, because if these brake.. you're stranded.

This guide is in process, you can hit edit and finish it! But you basically

1. Take off the belt

2. Unscrew it

3. Un plug it

Replace unit

Replug it back in

Put belts on.
