just buy a new one go to buy autoparts .com its cheap there for a Valeo.

To remove it....

disconnect the battery
remove the fan and upper air box panel

detention the belt, remove idler pulley, belt removed too

loosen the power steering pump, (you dont have to remove it, push it aside or pivot it

remove the 2 bolts, for the alternator, rotate it clockwise 20 degrees and it should come off.... pull it back a bit and disconnect the 2 wires and carefully navigate it out....
