You don't have to remove any of the bolts at all. There are only 2 pivot bolts on the alternator which have to be loosened, one on top and the other on the bottom of the unit. If you're standing in the very front of the car looking down at the alternator, tucked underneath it, there is a long 10mm bolt which you have to "loosen" but AFTER the 2 large pivot bolts in the front of the alternator are already loose. That small 10mm bolt is what will move the alternator in one direction or another. The easiest way to get to that adjuster bolt is to use quarter-inch ratchets, sockets, and extensions.

if it doesnt move by hand when its loosened, get a hammer and lightly tap it towards the motor, then simply pop the belt off.

you guys are lucky, you dont have to do shit to replace your alt belt. D series and B series, you have to loosen the timing belt mount and move the motor to get a ratchet in place, unless you have an angled gear wrench
