You're jokiing, right?
If it's the four cylinder (you don't say otherwise) couldn't be much
simpler.
The pictorial guide for changing the alternator belt is next to the
one for adding air to the tires.
Sorry.
It really is simple. The only caution in the factory manual, is to
align the ribs on the new belt correctly with the corresponding
grooves in the pulley, so the belt doesn't hang over slightly to one
side or the other. While this is fairly obvious, they do show a
drawing.
The only other item is to check the belt tension. Using a belt tension
gauge is best. That belt takes a fairly high tension, something like
110 lbs. "used" after being run for five minutes.
The alternator belt is right out front, so nothing else has to be
removed and there is a long adjusting bolt right on top to make
tensioning easy after merely loosening the clamping bolt.
Usually the alternator and power steering belts are changed with the
timing belt replacemnt because they need to be removed to gain access.
If the alternator belt is worn, you might want to check the last time
the timing belt was changed also.
Haynes manual has pictures for this and many other repair and
maintenance procedures and is less than $20.

thanks for the help, it really was simple to change the alternator
belt, but my power steering belt was also broken and haynes manual was
not helpful, i think i've figured out the pivot and adjustment bolts
for it but just can't get to them easily.

Lift the car with a hydraulic floor jack under the front engine
support cross member, (add jack stands) remove the right front wheel
and small plastic access cover.
Removing the power steering belt is not too challenging, it's
tensioning it.
Try using a wrench, or two combination wrenches "daisy chained"
together (open end linked to the box end) and pry using the square
section on the bottom of the pump housing. Even better if you can get
someone else to tighten the holding bolt when you're applying tension.
I had my 11 yr. old son do this using a long extension, and he thought
it was fun to use the fully polished ratchet handle.

One thing's certain. The steering wheel will be hard to turn.
Try turning the wheel before driving off, then decide.
Got to ask, how did you happen to have the power steering belt break?

power steering belt and i tired to remove as much as i could but it
was still stuck, when I replaced the alternator belt and tested it,

Back to my earlier point, since those drive belts are routinely
replaced with the timing belt - if the timing belt replacement may
also be overdue, don't forget that one.
