The Alternator is held by "two bolts" located at the top(12mm) and bottom (14mm). Remember to disconnect positive side of battery. First loosen 10mm nut that holds positive cable at back top of the alternator, then unplug wire harness on back. Second remove the 12mm bolt at top form the back. Third remove 14mm bolt at bottom form front. When you remove these bolts you should be able to loosen and pry out with a flat screw drive.

Toyota Previa 1991 how do you fix knocking engine problem?

Try and get someone to read the ECU codes, that will tell you if the problem is from the "Knock Sensor". If it is you will need to buy a new one and replace it. They are very expensive and can only be got from a Toyota Dealer. To fit your self Drill a hole under the front seat(Directly above the sensor) and replace from there. If you dont want to drill a hole you will have to drop the engine and that is not a cheap option on a previa.
