i had asimilar problem with my espace appears that the battery going flat was enough to kill the altenator .
the altenator will be on one side of the engine linked by your fan belt fairly easy swop usualy two bolts & a tensioner hold it on then undo the wiring (note everything down which wire goes were) slip it off the belt lift it out
get a haynes manual (or if your a skinflint go to your library & fotocopy the page ) will show you in there ok
good luck .

depending on car the removal of alternator may be very time consuming as im sure driveshaft and exhaust require removal as alternator may sit between back end of engine and electrician should give a free bench test of alternator if removed and taken to thier shop and they will advise on repair, get haines manual and look for a charge relay that the failure of the alternator can cause this to fail if fitted, wiring could also be at fault id first check all fuses and for bad connections or broken wires.
