Loosen mounting bolt A, B, and C. Then unscew the d adjuster bolt counter clockwise to loosen the pulley then remove the belt. Sometimes when loosening the d bolt the pulleys will not loosen and you will then have to push the pulley counterclockwise to loosen the belt.


let me know if I can help further.

Good luck,
Bob

The diagram does not look like the engine. It might be the 1.8 with a/c. Is there a diagram on how to put on the alternator belt there are two belts

I know that i have to remove this belt in order to instal the alternator belt is there a diagram on the alternator setup. Right now the alternator belt is not on. It ripped off
Expert:  BigBob replied 7 years ago.
This is the only pictures shown for the lx with a/c and power steering. The alternator is called a generator in the diagrams.
