There are only two bolts. Loosen both, so that you can get the belt off. Then take them all the way out, and the thing'll fall right out, pretty simple.

Answeri do know on early 90's was over passenger side tire Now here's an update to the answer above from another user:If it is the 22R series 4 cylinder engine, Toyota has it on the driver's side. I had to replace an alternator bracket on an 82 Toyota - the salvage yard sold me an improved version off a 1992 Toyota truck. So this information is also good for those who have trucks from 1981-95 with the 22R series 4 cylinder engines.

With a wrench or socket in one hand and a big pry bar in the other, you must be a multitasker. Lossen the mounting bolts and pry to get tension, tighten while applying steady pressure to the alternator

The cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub and then the original cable runs up to a threaded end with an adjuster nut on it.

The headlight switch could be defective. Check all the fuses first and if any are bad, replace them. The dimmer switch could also be defective.

No, it wouldn't work because of the cyllinder combustion default levels.

Many possibilities. Check in theis order: Bad battery connections? Bad battery? Loose alternator belt? Bad alternator connections? Bad alternator? (Test at auto parts store.)

you need a 8mm and a 6mm hex wrench and maybe a 10mm 13mm and 15mm sockets. First release the tension bar from the alternator and then use the 6mm hex on the inside end of the alternator and the 8mm on the other side...spin opposite directions and the alternator should come out.,

You don't need an alternator to start your engine only to recharge the battery. You could start any vehicle without an alternator but that doesn't mean it will run for long. Newer vehicles would just run till the battery was drained.
