Best Answer

first remove neg cable from battery loosen the bolt on the top of alt. a gear wrench is the best. at this point remove the small nut from alt on back that holds heavy gauge wire, this is your charging wire. Also carefully undo the clip fro the alt this is your fielding or senser wire , there are two wires in one. Then next you must remove bottom bracket bolt. This all should come out under the front of engine. if you have trouble two bolts hold the bracket to engine and this will require some tonge twist and a spitual cuss to remove. Answer on mine I found it easer to hold the engine with a ratchet strap then remove the upper dog bone and then slowly and carefully let the engine tip forwarded just about an inch then remove the alternator out the top I guess that some of the fieros had a small removable panel in the passenger side wheel well to get to the alternator but mine is an early run 84 and dose not have this option.

What causes alternator belts to break and squeal on a 1984 2.5L SE Pontiac fiero?

Make sure both the top and bottom bolts are tight, if the bottom is loose the alternator can "wiggle". Also I have noticed that the top bolt may sink into the slot provided for alternator belt adjustment. I put a slightly larger diameter thick washer on the top bolt and it cured "the agony of the screech"!
