It is not a very hard install at all. Should take you no more then an hour if you have proper tools. Make sure the belt goes on the smae way as you took it off. If you forgot look at the belt schematic in the engine bay. Good luck bro.

Wrong. The install is simple. Disconnect battery (mucho important). Take off the belt. Draw a picture of the route if there is not one under the Hood. Take off the alternator by disconnecting the electrical stuff first. Then take out the bolts that are connecting to it. If you do not know which ones to take out, I'll look under my Hood for you man. Then take the impact to the nut on the pulley. Then reverse for install. Should take around an hour, give or take on your abuility, so give around 2 hours free time just in case. Something always happens if you know what I mean?

It should be the normal way. Counterclockwise for removal. When you do it...don't just hold the impact. Tap it, or that pulley will start jumping like crazy. Does that make sense?

so most likely it will come off quick, no need for somebody to hold the pulley?

NO. Do not let anyone hold that pulley. It will spin right through whatever they are holding it with. You wil be able to figure it out once you are doing it.
If its being stubborn, you may have to get someone to hold it with a towel or really big pliers or something.
