Well it's a bit tuff , if I remember your air cleaner tubes got to come out, there is a lock that is between the two bolts , do one at a time , much easier, unhook outer tie rod remove the bolt for that side then remove it from wheel well , change bushing install then do other side
If you have air, fuel, and spark. It very well could be the timing belt. To check this, you will see a black cover on the passenger side of the engine. Take the top bolts out, so you can pull the cover back. You should see the belt. Have someone turn the ignition over. Check that the belt is turning. If not, It needs replaced.
The timing belt is not on the outside of engine. What you are describing might be the belt tensioner. The bolts you speak of in alternator are the mounting bolts. If the "smooth" wheel is vibrating, then replace the wheel. That is the belt tensioner.
you have to remove the belt . you can use a long3\8 ratchet to pull up or push down on the tensioner pulley. then just remove the bolt that holds the tensioner to the side of the motor.replace it with a new one and reinstall the belt
Forget trying to get at it from the top, go underneath. Take off the plastic shroud inside the passenger side fender. It's held to the frame by three bolts (10mm?) and a couple of quick fasteners. Once it's out of the way you can see and work fairly easily. I did not need to jack. Locate the flat pulley, it's obviously the tensioner. Loosen, but do not remove, the nut in the center of the pulley. Then locate the bolt head on the end/tip of the bracket that the pulley is mounted to. That is the adjuster. Loosening that bolt loosens the belt and vice versa. The power steering belt tensioner is very similar. Enjoy yourself!!
