loosen the bolt that is holding the adjuster of the alternator. loosen the belt by pulling it and the alternator would slide in. remove and replace the belt.
do the reverse on installation.
remember to tighten all bolts of the adjuster and alternator after tightening the belt.

SOURCE: 1991 toyota 4 runner water pump
Ok, I haven't worked on a toyota four runner but im sure its closely related to some domestic SUV's I have worked on, First go to any auto parts store and buy your own water pump, It cheaper and wont cost you as much, for the timing belt also get it yourself, but you will need someone to correct the timing for you unless you mark the original places or have an timing belt gun, but you will have to remove the Fan, and harmonic balancer most likely, Oh go to the auto parts store and get a Chilton's manual to your nehicle cause it will guide you through the steps better than I can, You may have to drop the radiator, There possibly might be a timing belt cover so remove it and the timing belt itself cause the water pump is directly behing the belt, replace pump and timing belt,"also you will need a sealant for the water pump", then replace the parts you have taken off, For the hramonic balancer you will need a special tool to remove it so ask for it at your local Auto Parts store, I hope this is somewhat of help to you, Trying to make it as cost efeective as possible!!!

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

Zero tolerance means the valves may have hit the piston when the timing belt broke. I would suggest doing a cylinder leakage test to see if the valves are bent or not. If the valves are not bent then you can replace the belt and everything will be ok. If there are bent valves then the cylinder heads will need to be removed and repaired.

I think the terms "Throttle Positon Sensor", TPS and "Throttle Body" can be misleading at least in regards to the 04 Camry.
My 04 Camry gave a diagnostic reading of P2121 for my problem "Throttle PEDAL position switch D circuit". However, we changed out the complete Throttle Body/TPS (Toyota Part #22030-0H020) that did NOT fix problem.
The 04 Camry TPS Electronic Module "Throttle Positon Sensor" is factory assembled and riveted to the side of the throttle body. The only way to service/inspect it would be to cut off or drill out the rivets. Not sure you could open the darn thing if you got it off, but that seems to be the only way Toyota sells them!!
Hopefully a new Throttle PEDAL Position Sensor (Toyota Part # 78010-33010 PEDAL ASSY, ACC)
will fix it. This is located under the dash near the accelerator pedal.
So, now I would recommend FIRST to replace the "Throttle PEDAL Positon Sensor" (it is much, much cheaper) and then the Throttle Body/TPS assembly!! Unless of course, you get a diagnostic code as you did for "faulty throttle body!!
