Take the old one out, put the new one in, it's kind of a no brainer. Whatever you do to get the old one out, do it in reverse to put the new one in.

THe parts store may ask you the amperage of your old one, so if you have it out and can bring it in that may help. Make sure the mounting tabs are the same too.
Removal
1. disconnect the negative(black) battery terminal
2. loosen up the 2 mounting bolts, slide the alt towards the belt to loosen it up. (pull belt off the alt pully.. no need to remove it all the way)
3. Disconnect the 3-4 wires on the back (they use little nuts, but a new one usually has them brand new) Make sure you remember what goes where!!!
4. Remove mounting bolts all the way
5. Slide out alt
Install

do the opposite, except if you can install the wires before loosely bolting it in place it MAY make it easier (depending on the hand room behind alt)

Good luck.

Don't tighten the nuts on the back of the alternator (that the wires go on) as tight as you can, or, you'll probably break them off or something bad.
