the blower motor is under the hood, passenger side, up high behind the alternator in the firewall. i am changing this today on my '92 corsica. unfortunately, after loosening it and trying to take it out i learned that the alternator will have to be removed first as there is not enough clearance. in these particular cars the alternator has no range of motion as the belt tensioner is separate so it will need to be removed first. you simply need to disconnect the ground and the power wire first by gently pulling them off. then loosen the (qty 5 or 6) 7mm screws that hold the motor in and it will come right out.

How do you loosen the slack on an alternator belt for a 97 Pontiac Sunfire?

If you're changing the alternator, you can loosen it's bolts to gain some slack, but you'll need more.This is done using the belt tensioner. It's a pulley looking thing in the belt path. On my '96, it's down and back from the alternator. It's surface is often very shiny and it has what looks like a nut on the front. If you put a wrench or socket on the nut, you can rotate the entire assembly away from the belt. That will let you get the belt on or off.The Haynes manual has a pretty good illustration.FriPilot

How do you loosen the tension on the alternator belt of a 1996 Cavalier?

My son just bought a '96 Z24 and we had to have the alternator rebuilt. I tried several tools to get at the tensioner wheel and came up with the following: I put a box end wrench on the bolt in the center of the tensioner wheel, then slipped a short piece of pipe (2 ft) over the other end of the wrench and used it for leverage to move the tensioner wheel and loosen the belt to slip it off the alternator.

How do you replace the alternator belt on a 96 geo prizm?

Under the front side of the alternator when you are facing the engine from the front. There is a bolt about 10mm. It is long and skinny. Loosen that and eventually it will give the belt the slack it needs. (WARNING : DO NOT LOOSEN ALL THE WAY, i made this mistake and unless you want to cut up your hands getting it back together, just don't) Then you have to loosen the larger bolt on the very top that the alternator pivots off of. Once that is done simply pull out the belt(careful to see what tracks it was in first) and slip on the new one. now tighten the skinny bolt and then the top one and you are done~!
