Just do a search on google. (1995 2.4 v-6 Isuzu alternator belt diagram) There are plenty of diagrams showing the belt routing. Put the belt on all the pulleys you can. Take a wrench and pull back the tensioner, slip the last part of the belt over the last pulley. Then, release the tensioner arm and it will tighten up the belt. Turn it over and check it again to be sure it is on straight.
put the alternator on first without the belt and alighn as needed to replace the bolts use the belt tentioner to replace the belt or the sliding channel on the alternatonr mounts if there is no tentioner
short socket extension bar
adjustable wrench 250mm
tyre lever or long thin bar for levering out alternator
there are 2, 14mm bolts in front bracket of power steering pump loosen a couple of turns only then loosen stud nut at rear of power steering pump then you can move pump in/out by turning 14mm long bolt you see thread for just left of power steering pump pulley
then the alternator is a 12 or some times 13mm bolt at top front section to loosen then lever in and out, must hold tension on lever with belt on while doing this up (2nd person to hold lever)
Remove belt, fan, fan shroud and fan bracket. Remove timing covers, timing belt and water pump. Replace timing belt and the hydraulic tensioner with new ones. I suggest you get a mechanic to do this as you can easly get it out of time. Not an easy job.
You need to loosen the alternator so the belts become slack. Look for bolts on top and bottom that attach the alternator to a bracket or the engine block. Loosen them and the alternator will move. Since the belts hook to other accessories, you may need to loosen them too. To get them back and the proper tension, you'll need a large screwdriver or pry bar to put tension on them as you tighten the bolts. I suggest you get a Haynes guide for this model that will have photos showing how this is done.
from Yahoo answers
The alternator is located on the passenger side of the motor at the bottom. There is a bracket attached to the motor and the alternator. You need not take the bracket off to remove the alternator. Two bolts hold the alternator to the bracket. One bolt is on the front top of the alternator and one bolt is located on the bottom front of the alternator. The bottom front bolt is attached to the tension adjustment for the alternator. Loosen the tension screw then remove the bolt going through the tension adjustment. After you loosen the top, front bolt, the alternator should be loose enough to move side to side. Remove the top, front bolt. Now you must disconnect the alternator from the power supply. Behind the alternator is a screw with a wire attached via nut. Remove this wire. Nextly there is a series of wires with a plug on the end. It is plugged into the side of the alternator. Uplug this item. You can also access both of these from the passenger side front tire well. Something to consider is that remanufactured alternators in Rodeo's as well as the Honda Passport (which has the same engine as the Rodeo) do not work and the problem(s) associated with a bad alternator,ie; not charging, no fan blower, battery light and brake light on, still exsist after replacing alternator with reman. Use a factory original alternator if possible. It will cost a little more than a reman but will most likely save you a lot of time and headache!
