Hi mate,

In that case, just loosen the bolts on the top and bottom mounts of the alternator, and then turn the alternator and the belt will come off. Put the new one on, tension it up do up the top and bottom bolts and your done. If you have trouble getting the belt over the bottom pulley, you can remove the drivers side wheel and get at it that way.

Hope that helps,
Alan

Dont forget to slacken the crankshaft sensor half way off to get the belt between the sensor and pulley!
