Can someone please tell me the secret to removing my alternator belt? I have already removed the front most A/C belt, but the alternator and power steering belts remain (in that order) and I don't see any more tension bolts! How do I remove them???

There are only two belts; PS and AC/Alternator. Look directly under alternator for adjustment lock nut (difficult to access - use an offset closed end) and loosen nut 1 turn. Loosen alternator pivot bolt, and drive adjustment bolt from front of engine w/ a 12" extension + swivel + 12mm socket to loosen the alternator position. AC does not move.

You can get all this info and more from the 94-97 download manual on this site.

good luck
