1986 Ranger 2.3 Replacement of Alternator belt

Sorry that you keep seeing my name pop up a lot today,but that's what happens when you have 25 year old truck.

Ok. I've replaced my timing belt before, but the mechanic today noticed my alternator belt was cracked and ready to go. He wanted $90.00. The belt costs $15.00 @ Autozone. I never replaced this and wanted to know how difficult it would be. He only told me if I did it myself, I'd have to be really careful??? careful of what?

I bought this truck new back in '86, and it did not come with factory Air conditioning, but I had ARA install an after-market A/C about a year after I purchased the truck,which the A/C hasn't worked for years.

So is this an easy doable task? Thanks!

Can't say for sure on this model, but I can't imagine it being difficult
