Exclamation Need Some Help Real Quick w/belt change

I'm working on changing my alternator/fan belt on my 1996 2.4L KA24E. I have loosened the alternator bolt thing, but it won't budge. Do I need to loosen another bolt? I shouldn't have to. Where could it be stuck? What should I spray with PB blaster? I don't want to have to remove the alternator entirely.

Did you loosen the bottom mounting bolt?

There are two bolts on the adjuster, the adjuster itself and a lock bolt. Then you have to loosen the mounting bolt.

Where is the mounting bolt? I loosened the lock bolt and the adjuster bolt (of course).

So is it the one that is in the bottom-left corner of the alternator itself?

There are 3 bolts you need to loosen. The first one is at the top and has the bolt head facing forward. The second one is at the bottom and has the bolt head facing forward as well as a nut on the back. The 3rd is the bolt on top that has the bolt head pointing to the passenger side.

Thank you. I'm changing the thermostat because the engine temp level gauge is stuck at dead-cold. Also, the fan clutch is shot, so I'm replacing that, and the belt while i've got it all apart.

Sometimes I've had to loosen the bolts that hold the adjuster bracket to the timing cover, so the alternator will move far enough in to fit the belt on.
