Remove the alternator from below the vehicle. 1. Disconnect the positive battery cable. 2. Disconnect the 4P or 3P connector from the alternator. 3. Remove the terminal nut and the WHT wire from the B terminal. 4. Remove the adjusting bolt and through bolt nut, then remove the alternator belt from the pulley. 5. Pull out the alternator through bolt, then remove the alternator. 6. If necessary, remove the mount bracket bolts, and the upper and lower mount brackets. 7. Adjust the alternator belt tension after installation. The deflection should be between 6mm to 8.5mm for a new belt.
