You will have too take off outer belt to replace the alternator belt.using a 10mm socket remover front pully cover. Next use a 14 mm opened end or box wrench to loosen the top retaining bolt on the pump assembly. below the pully there is another 14mm bolt to loosen they should not be taken off just loosened. on the lower front of this assembley is 14 mm tensioning bolt loosen till you can slide off belt. know you can get to the inner alternator belt.

Why is your alternator belt continuing to break and snap on your 97 Mazda Protege?

I am having the same problem with a 99 Protege.
