How do I replace the alternator on Acura 2007

My car has 197832 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Prior to contemplating replacement of the alternator, of course be sure that it has a mechanical (usually bearing) failure and/or is not charging at the factory specified voltage. Before servicing the vehicle, make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, and the navigation system, then write down the radio channel presets. Make sure the ignition switch is OFF. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery first, then disconnect the positive cable. Disconnect the A/C condenser fan motor connector and the A/C compressor clutch connector, then remove the reserve tank. Remove the two bolts, loosen bolt, and then remove the A/C condenser fan shroud. Remove the alternator drive belt. Disconnect the alternator electrical connector and the BLK wire from the alternator. Remove the bolt retaining the harness bracket. Remove the mounting bolt, alternator bracket mounting bolt and then remove the alternator. To install the new alternator, reverse the foregoing steps. Using only a calibrated torque wrench tighten the mounting bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (44 Nm), the bracket bolt to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) and the harness bolt to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm). OEM dealer supplied alternators are the preferred replacement part. If you are buying an aftermarket alternator, make sure it is a reputable, recognizable name brand.
