Tip & How-To about Chevrolet S 10
Unhook the battery terminals. Loosen the tensioner pulley and remove the belt from the pulley (if there's no belt routing diagram under the hood, draw one first). * Unplug the 4 pronged black wire that goes into the back. Unscrew the 10mm bolt that holds on the positive lead cable to the alternator. Take out the upper and lower bolts on the alternator. Check the back and see if it still has the black support rod bolted onto it. If it does, then remove that bolt also. GENTLY pry the alternator loose under the lower mount (be careful these alternator brackets have a tendency to break if forced too much).
* Sometimes it's easier to remove the wires after the unit is unbolted and loose, just a matter of ease and preference.
If this pertained to your vehicle, please take the time to rate it, as I took the time to write it. Thank you.
