Don't drive it. Remove the old one. First, Remove air intake stuff that's in the way (dont be worried to pull out the two hoses connected to it). Secondly, take a 1/2" drive and insert it into the tensioner pulley (there should be a diagram under the hood that says which one it is). Turn clockwise and to take tension off and remove belt from alternator. There should be three bolts holding alternator, two on the bottom and one on the top going down. They are 10mm I believe. Remove them and lift the alternator up so you can get to the wires on the back. One should be red and you will need to pull back the rubber cover and remove the nut that holds it on with the 10mm socket. Then, remove the other two wires (you will probably need a screw driver to lift up the clips that hold them on, But don't break them!). Get a new alternator and do all of this in reverse and you should be good! Takes me about 30 min. Good luck!
(disconnect the battery before you do anything, by the way. )
