Place the water pump gasket (O-ring) on the block and install the pump. Tighten the mounting bolts evenly to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).Install the timing belt covers, making sure they are properly seated and not rubbing on the belt or other moving parts.Install a new seal (O-ring) on the dipstick tube and lightly coat it with engine oil. Remove the plug and install the dipstick tube and dipstick; secure the mounting bolt to 82 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
Using a new O-ring, install the inlet pipe to the water pump. Attach the clamps and bolts to hold the pipe in place and tighten to 7-9 ft. lbs. (9-12 Nm). Connect the water inlet and water bypass hoses to the inlet pipe. Install the water pump pulley and temporarily tighten the four pulley bolts. Install the drive belts on all the pulleys and adjust all of them to the correct tension. With the belts in place and adjusted, the water pump pulley will now resist turning. Tighten the pulley bolts to 16-18 ft. lbs. (22-24 Nm). Install the front engine mount (mounting insulator). Confirm that the draincocks are closed on the engine block and radiator. Refill the engine with coolant. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks.
The procedure to replace alternator is as follows:--
1) Determine which alternator your Toyota Corolla needs. Be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Corolla's engine.2) Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the gravel shield if you need to access the alternator from under the car. Remove the electrical connector and unfasten the retaining nut on the alternator terminal with a socket wrench. This allows you to remove the battery terminal wire. 3) Remove the drive belt. Unfasten the two mounting bolts on the alternator with a socket wrench and take the alternator off the vehicle. 4) Install the new alternator assembly. Use a torque wrench to tighten the smaller mounting bolt to 18 foot-lb. and the larger one to 40 foot-lb. 5) Connect the electrical harness and battery terminal wire to the alternator and fasten the retaining nut to the alternator terminal with a socket wrench.

loosen the bolts for the alternator, then lever the alternator away from the block to tighten the belt.you have 2 bolts holding the alternator and 1 holding the adjusting arm.(loosen both ends/lever/then tighten)
First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.
The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.
Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.
loosen the mounting bolts on the alternator, remove the old belt, replace with the new belt, slightly tighten the top mounting bolt, pull the alternator up until the belt is tight or if there is an adjustment bolt, crank down until tight (shouldn't bow more than 1"), and tigten other hardware.
OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
