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. The alternator has three bolts one on side facing you just above the pully its' a 12mm. at the rear bottom is a 14 mm retainging bolt you will have to feel for it as it can't be seen. the last one is another 12 mm tensioning Bolton the left side of the alternator as you face it loosen until belt comes off. reverse procedure to install.
