What steps should I follow when removing the alternator from my 92 Suzuki sidekick?

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Loosen adjusting bracket nut or bolt and the bottom bolt, then loosen the long adjusting bolt while pushing down on the alternator. Remove the belt.
Unplug wire from top of alternator.
Unbolt the wire from the rear of alternator. Completely remove upper and lower bolt from the alternator. Pry the alt away from the brackets. You may have to use a hammer to tap the spacer back in its hole about 1/4 inch. This is located in the hole where the large bolt went through. Reverse procedure to install.

O.k. I have the bottom bolt off for the alternator and the belt off the wheel but i cant get to the top pully what do i do to get the top pully off to get to the top bolt for the alternator

By the "top pulley" you would be referring to the water pump pulley? This is held on with 4, 10mm head bolts. Make sure you have disconnected the battery and then removed the battery cable from the back of the alternator before continuing.
