This is a tough one. Remove the alternator and the bolt and be sure the threads on the engine block and the bolt are clean. I generally spray the bolt tip with a cleaner or wd40 to help it start.
Be sure the surface is clean, you can try hanging the alt from its bracket to help pivot into place and support some of the weight but it has to have enough play to the slide up or down against the block. This one is more trial and error, just turn the bolt with your fingers until you feel it bite. Best of luck its a tight spot.

Timing marks on 1999 rx 300

usually the timing marks are on the front pulley.another way to replace the cam belt,is to mark the belt and each pulley with correction ink[white] and then just transfer the marks over to the new belt and then align each pulley to the marks.thats easier if the old belt hasnt moved or jumped a tooth.most *** motors have the timing marks for cambelt replacement easy to spot with corresponding raised bits of ali pedestals next to them

How do I remove Head Light assembly on my 1999 Lexus RX 300

After removing the top and side bolts (which are obvious) Go to the fender liner. Remove all but the top screw . You will find (by flashlight or shop light) two bolts coming out of the headlight rear. With a socket wrench and 10mm socket, remove the two nuts on the headlight and pull out the headlight from the front after insuring the bulbs are removed and identified for reinstall. Take your time. It is not difficult.
