I looked in all the usual places and cannot come up with an answer for you. Couple of videos on Youtube show guys changing out their belts, but not actually removing the alternator. Unfortunately, the shop manuals are not longer available on line.

Look close at that pic and specifically at the further away bolt holes, the circles around them. Those are light pressfit bushings that the long bolt goes through, they pull up really tight when the bolt is tightened and then the alt essentially becomes locked in place to be part of the bracket. The task there is to pry or whack the alt without damaging it to slide those inserts back out a slight bit, then the alt will fall right out.

Fords have used that method for years; it holds alts in place really well. Make sure the new alt has the inserts pressed out to be even with the rest of the leg casting or the alt may not fit down in place. It will be super loose but the bolts pull those back up tight to tighten the whole thing up. I use a pair of vise-grips slightly offset to press the inserts back out.

As far as the shop manuals go, Nissan has a copyright on them and they were taken down off the internet. Every once in a while they pop up here and there, but don't stay up for a very long time.

Enroll for free and at the top of page. And quit making so much noise, or they will disappear again. It's all the whiners that likely cannot even use them but posting all over heaven and earth and over and over that alert people to those things. It's a network traffic thing. The quieter things stay the longer they last. I shouldn't have even mentioned it.
