To replace the alternator on a 1995 Honda Civic disconnect the battery. Disconnect the wiring from the alternator. Loosen the adjustment bracket so the belt has slack. Remove the alternator belt along with the mounting hardware. Pull the alternator and replace it.
You have to find the alternator then look at where it is connected to the motor there will be a slide mechanism that you will have to loosen which will release the slack on the belt so you can get it off.

1. The first thing that you need to do is to disconnect the two wires that are connected to the back of the alternator. 2. Loosen and remove the upper bolt for the adjustment on the alternator. 3. Loosen the lower alternator bolt so that you can take the belt off of the alternator. 4. Move alternator forward so that you can remove the belt. 5. Take the lower bolt out and remove alternator from below. 6. To reinstall repeat steps 1 throw 5 in reverse.
I have a 97 Ford probe and when I had to replace my alternator... I had to pulled the passenger tire off and pull the whole assembly apart so I could get the alternator.. There are 2 bolts to loosen up and pull the belt out slide the alternator down by the exhaust and pull it out by the CV axle
The belt you have to first remove is the power steering pump belt. Loosen the clamp bolt, then the adjusting screw on the power steering pump until the belt is slack enough to remove from the pulleys. If you have air conditioning, you will also need to remove that belt too, by the same method on the A/C compressor. You can now loosen the clamp bolt (12 mm) from the alternator as well as the retaining bolt (14 mm) on the alternator. Once loosen, swing the alternator towards the engine block and remove the belt from the pulleys. Cheers Malcolm
First, disconnect the battery cables, Second, you have to drain some or all the coolant so you can remove the upper radiator hose, Third, disconnect the alternator cables, Fourth, loosen the bolt attaching the alternator so you can loosen the alternator belt, Finally, remove the bolt and angle the alternator to remove it. You might need to hammer the alternator from underneath, sometimes they are really tight. 'Hope this helps.
There are two bolts to loosen, one at the top of the alternator and a smaller one underneath on a bracket. Loosen these and push the whole unit down this will loosen the belt so it can be replaced then use a lever to pull up the unit while tightening the bolts
AnswerThere are three bolts involved. The top bolt located closest to the engine is your Pivot bolt. Loosen that bolt so the alternator will pivot downward when you unlock it. Speaking of unlocking, there is another bolt located on the bottom of the alternator, loosen and remove this bolt. Finally, on the front of the alternator there is a tension adjustment bolt. Loosen that until the belt clears the pulley so that you can remove it. You don't have to remove the tension bolt, just loosen it. Once the belt is removed make sure to disconnect any wire/plugs, etc from the alternator, remove the pivot bolt and viola! Installation is the reversal.
There should be a belt tensioner pulley that is able to slide back and forth to tention the belt. Loosen that fully then take the belt off that will also be the same for the alternator if it is a V-belt Drive. if it is a serpentine belt the one belt will release the pressure from All the Pulley's.
