loosen bottom bolt on the alternator unit and push the alternator towards the engine block until you can remove the belt from the pulley on the alternator. Leave in the bottom bolt until you have removed the top bolt as it may need some levering with a small pry bar to pull the top of the alternator away, when the top is free remove the bottom bolt while holding the alternator so it wont fall, and remove the tension spring. This should only take about 20 to 30 mins!

Do you have to remove the mounting bracket when replacing the alternator in a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe?

No, you do not have to remove the bracket to remove and replace the alternator. There are the two main bolts under the alternator which thread into the bracket on the back side that hold the alternator in place. After that, only a 13mm nut securing a wire (back side) and a plug (bottom, back side) which has 4-6 wires. To loosen the alternator belt (which may be confusing you) you must put a wrench or socket on the tensioner pulley and pry counter clock-wise. This will allow you to slip the belt off of the alternator pulley (should be done first during removal, last during replacement)

Remove ground cable from battery. Start by jacking car up so driver side front wheel is off the ground. Remove that wheel. The only way to get the alternator out is through that wheel well. Remove the nut and bolt from the bottom of the alternator. Mine was frozen in and took a lot of effort to remove. Then remove the bracket that is attached to the engine block. This has to come off to get the alternator out. One more adjusting bolt at the top needs to be removed. This is accessed from above. Remove the small nut that holds an electrical connection on top of the alternator. Then remove the electrical plug that is in the side of the alternator. Take the alternator out from the bottom of the car thru the wheel well. Repeat for install.
