I got a 96 XE and it was trouble fcor a while. There's a pinch bolt facing forward on the top bracket to the alt. Loosen this pinch bolt, then loosen the long bolt going through a bracket and through the alternator. You may have to remove the splash guard under the engine to reach it but it will let the alt. pivot. Third, move the alt. to loosen the belt by turning the longer bolt next to the pinch bolt. Yhis will move the square piece. To tighten I would tighten the long lower bolt enough to barely move the alt. by pushing with a little force. Then tighten the bolt through the square piece which will tighten belt. Check belt tension while tightening the pinch bolt. Readjust as necessary to achieve proper belt tension. Lastly tighten the lower long bolt securly. I used some loc-tite to keep from vibrating loose.
Such an easy belt change! I learned how after overtightening and cracking the upper bracket and bending the bolt as well. I wish "I" had asked someone first....
