The big wire on the back of the alternator under the cover of that wire is a nut. You will need I believe a 3/8 socket maybe a 10mm to remove the nut and then the wire will come off.
Just what he said,the nut holding the wire on is a 10mm,the 3 bolts holding the alt on are 13mm,use a long 1/2 inch ratchet with a cheater pipe to get the belt off(the cheater pipe just makes it easier). An alt will run ya between $160 to $200.
