I see the top bolt for removal of Alternator, but the bottom one is very difficult to get to and I do not see a head on it. Do I have to remove anything else to remove the alternator. Also I can't see how the tension works. Does the alternator move for the tension, or is there another adjustment.

The alternator is held by 2 long bolts: one on top and one at the bottom. Identify the location of these bolts. Lose the top bolt first, remove completely the bottom bolt. Use the top bolt as a pivot point to lift the alternator so the belt can be out of the pulley grove. After that take off the top bolt so the alternator can come off easily. Put in the new one in reverse from what you did. Good luck.
TO REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR YOU WILL HAVE TO DISCONECT THE BATERY AND RAISE AND SUPORT THE CAR FROM THE FRONT LEFT END AND REMOVE THE TIRE AFTER THAT LOSEN OF THE ALT BELT BY LOSENING AND REMOVING A SHORT 12MM HEAD SCREW ON THE ALT ADJUSTER ON TOP AND LOSENING AND REMOVING A LARGE 14MM HEAD SCREW ON THE BOTTOM AFTER THAT PRAY THE ALT WITH A BIG FLAT HEAD SCREWDRIVER AFTER THAT TAKE OF THE ALT SUPORT TO LET THE ALT COME DOWN THE SUPORT IS BOLTED TO THE ENGINE BLOCK WITH 2 SHORT 14MM HEAD SCREWS, AFTER THAT YOU CAN TAKE OF THE ALT CONECTOR AND B+ CABLE NOW YOU CAN REMOVE THE ALT .

Disconcet the positive cbl on batery..
Disconect plugs & wires from alternator..
Loosen the belt.
Pull out alt..
Put in the new alt..
Tighten bolts & belt.
Plug wires back in..
Re-conect cbl to batt..
it shouldn't be to difficult to do if it is accessible. Disconnect the battery first, then loosen and remove belt, remove wires and plug from alternator, then remove connecting bolts to the alternator, just go back in reverse order. Hope this helps!
There are 2 bolts that hold the alternator in position. One bolt is near the top of the alternator, the other is near the bottom. The bottom bolt threads through the end of the ADJUSTMENT bolt (which is at a 90 degree angle to this mounting bolt, and faces threaded end w/ adjustment nut to alternator). Loosen 2 mounting bolts, adjust tension at adjustment nut (near alternator), tighten 2 mounting bolts (upper bolt 33 ft lbs, Lower mounting bolt 18 ft lbs). countrycurt0
if you are somewhat mechanically inclined you should be able to follow these steps in order I put them. #1 Disconnect the negative battery terminal.#2 Disconnect the electrical terminals from the alternator.#3 Loosen the alternator adjustment and pivot bolts and remove the belt.#4 Remove the bolts and separate the alternator from the engine.#5 Remove the alternator bracket from engine.#6 Remove the fuel filter and any of the vacuum lines in the way.#7 Remove alternator from top of the car.#8 Installation is reverse of removal.
Loosen the upper bolt from the top and remove. From the bottom remove the adjuster bolt and remove. You'll have to remove the CV axle and remove the alternator from the bottom of the car. Not a very good design as you may already be aware of.
