normally I'm all about DIY and I appreciate the help. And if I had an engine where the alt was easily accessible, I would do it. but i have the 3.4 liter V6, and the alternator is buried under the engine on the right side and you have to take apart half the front end and who knows what else.

hmm been searching and found this thread that gives step-by-step instructions: http://www.w-body.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30225

Still don't know if I can do it though, never taken apart a vehicle like this. after my last final in 30 minutes I'll check and see if I can follow the steps described, just by looking and thinking through it.

For most people alternators should not be very hard, but it will be very frusterating for some. The belt is what people hate doing the most I think...as 95hondo said you just need a little patience, it is quite easy in most cases.
On a side note, I love older cars with a lot of space under the hood where you can swap alts in a matter of minutes.
