Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
I do not have a GS , but for the most part the unit is similar to my RX. First detach, both positive and negative battery cables.
Look around on the alternator to locate the large mounting bolts, I believe 14mm , may be 3 of them. Generally you will have a visible clamp bolt on a bracket on top and one or two on the underside.I recall this being very tight access and needing a flex knuckle socket attchment to access the 1 bolt on the underside.
The underside bolt/ bolts are usually longer bolting into the engine housing and at least 1 allows the alternator to pivot for belt tightening.
You will also have a detachable wiring harness running to the unit. There should be a small rubber insulating boot covering a nut for the large wire and sometimes a push in connector. Remove these gently and note the location.
The mounting bolts must be fully removed from the engine block to release the alternator. I did not have to remove other items but on both my RX and my Previa, the alternator had to be wiggled in and out of pretty tight space.
Inspect the inside of your belt for cracks while you have the unit off. Best of luck. take your time and watch your knuckles. It's a doable job....if you're patient
