ok buddy , i am talking about 1993 Mazda mx6 4 cyl. when you look down you can see the one side of the alternator . put your hand on the back side which you can't see you will find a mounting bolt .you will feel it with your hand . that needs to be loosened first before you can loosen that the long tension bar . good luck , i just replaced the drive belts today ...ouff

Loosen the alternator bolt and lean it forward to relief the tension there. Find the lock bolt on the front end of the assembly (just follow the belts) and you need to unscrew the locking bolt and then unscrew the tensioniner....it's near impossible to explain this without pictures.

disconnect battery terminals. remove upper radiator hose and manifold on block, debuckle the radiator to allow wiggle. disconnect electrical wiring from alternator. release alternator tension on belt, and remove tensioning device. remove bolt holding alternator to block. twist and wiggle alternator up between abs mess, radiator and motor.

Remove the positive cable from the battery post. Remove the cables from the alternator. Remove the alternator wiring harness. Remove the belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
