You first undo upper adjuster, remove completely, then you must undo the 3 allen bolts on the alt mount to engine block, of course after disconnecting battery. There is not room to remove lower pivot bolt.

How do you remove the tensioner pulley on a 1998 Saab 900 SE Convertible 2.0

Disconnect the Negative Battery Cable
2. Remove the air breather/cleaner and hose from between the air breather/cleaner and throttle housing
3. Remove the strain of the belt tensioner off the belt and pry off the belt
4. Remove the right front wheel
5. Remove the belt cover & Disconnect the battery Cable and the red alternator power wire.
6. Remove the two Alternator Bolts that secure the alternator to the bracket
7. Remove the three bolts that hold the header pipe up to help give room to remove the alternator
8. Remove the converter bolt from the converter bracket and mover the converter over to aid in the alternator removal
9. Refit in reverse

Working from Top down:
disconnect battery 2) not necessary to remove airfilter box but does give more breathing room for belt removal/instal 3) un-tension serpentine belt with a 1/2" drive long extension in the square of the tensioner & pull towards the front of the car to release the serpentine belt 4) lock tensioner with about a 4mm pin(Allen key will do) by pulling forward with that 1/2"drive extension & pinning the tensioner with that hole 5) remove tensioner with 8mm Allen key or drive(not necessary to remove R side engine mount & raise engine) and be careful to not knock and cause to release the tensioner-they hurt when they snap! 6) remove upper alternator bolt(8mm Allen key/drive).

Working from Bottom of the engine bay:
disconnect cables at alternator(13 & 8 mm nuts) 8) remove R wheel/inner fender skirt that covers the harmonic balancer(10 & 8 mm heads)/ tie back flex hose to strut 9) remove lower alternator bolt(8mm alley key/drive) 10) wedge/rotate out alternator of its mounts 11) disconnect exhaust pipe rubber hangers at catalytic converter and mid section of exhaust 12) you can bend(and later re-bend into position the hanger studs) (OR undo front header studs/nuts to free up the front part of the exhaust) to push over the exhaust and pull out the alternator(pulley nose down)--be careful when getting the alternator out as the downstream O2 sensor is right there(a good precaution would be to remove it)......reverse procedures to install.

Directions on how to remove the alternator on 1989 900 Saab. Does anything have to be removed to be able to get the alternator off. Also, any tricks to get belts off first?

Removing the alternator isn't the easiest job on this car!

The long bolt that allows the alternator to pivot to adjust belt tension ISN'T the bolt to be removed; remove the two bolts that hold the mounting bracket to the engine block. One is at the end of the alternator (away from the belt), the other is above the end of the adjusting bolt, not far away from the first bolt. Slacken the tension off the belt by loosening the adjusting bolt, then undo the two bolts holding the bracket to the engine block.

While you have the alternator off, check the bushings of the tension adjusting bolt; if worn/sloppy they should be pressed out and replaced; it'll extend the life of the alternator bearings.

Good luck!
