These aren't to bad, you have to do most of the work through the wheel well on the passengers side. You can get to the electrical connectors from there and the pivot bolt on the alternator. Then for the top adjuster,I usually back it off a bit so the belt is a little loose and then pull the short lock bolt off.Here is a diagram that may assist you.I put a blue mark on the pivot bolt and a yellow mark on the short bolt to pull out.
Hope thishelps!
