From underneath the car so I suggest putting the car up on a hydraulic lift.

don't know why you are removing--but you should put a cover over it before you reinstall.

1) Put the car up on ramps...or on a lift of you have one
2) Disconnect the negative cable on the battery
3) Remove the drive belt
----working under the car now
4) Remove the engine under cover...11 10mm bolts hold it on
5) Disconnect the terminal wire on the alternator
6) Undo the two bolts that hold the alternator on

That should be it, although it may take a while. Good luck .
