LOOK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ALT. YOU WILL FIND A 14mm BOLT HEAD, AND A 14mm NUT AT THE REAR. LOOSEN THIS BOLT, THEN YOU WILL SEE A 12mm BOLT AT THE TOP FRONT OF ALT. IN A SLIDE BRACKET. LOOSEN THIS BOLT, USE LITE PRESSURE WITH A PRY BAR TO MOVE ALT. AWAY FROM BLOCK AND HOLD IT THERE WHILE YOU TIGHTEN THE 12mm BOLT FIRST, THEN THE 14mm NUT AND BOLT
THAT SHOULD DO YOU.

BTW: CHECK VOLTS AT BATT. WITH METER AND FAST IDEL (13.5v - 14.5v)

Loosen from the bracket. There's two bolts for each, one to swivel on, and one to adjust belt tension. Loosen both these, and throw the belts on, and tighten back up.

The pully beeper is talking about is the adjusting one for the A/C compressor. You need to loose the nut on the idler pulley (not the compressor) befor you loose the bolt that moves the pulley. A/C compressor stays where it is.
The bolt that is used to tighten the adjustment bar fell out and I need to get a new one. Do you happen to know what size bolt I need?
