How do I replace my alternater belt in my Mazda 626 lx

If the alternator is on the top in the open, just loosen the alternator bolts a little bit. Then push the alternator to loosen the belt to remove it. Do the opposite to put the new belt on.

If the alternator is buried under a lot of other things, it's a lot tougher job.
Hope this helps.

How to replace an alternator on mazda 626 1999

OK, This worked well for me. Easier than some solutions I read on the internet.
This method does not require getting under the car.
1. Loosen the 17mm bolt on the belt tensioner pulley.
2. Turn the tension screw (10mm) conuter clockwise to losen the belt.
3. Remove the Serpentine belt.
4. Drain and remove the radiator. Catch the coolant, filter and reuse.
5. Remove the negative battery cable from the battery.
6. Remove the battery cable from the alternator and uclip the control connector.
7. Remove the top alternator support bolt.
8. Losen the bottom alternator support bolt. It will not come out. The support
bracket is a slot, not hole. The alternator bolt and all will slide out of the slot
directly toward the front of the car.
9. Lift the alternator out between the engine and AC condensor.
10. Reverse the procedure to install the new alternator.

Good Luck

Im trying to replace the alternator on a 1999 Mazda 626

Yes, I experienced the same thing with mine... you have to losen the 2 motor mounts on that side and lift the motor up about 3 ". I worked at a garage so I had access to an engine hoist. Try using a jack from underneath. Nice engineering from Mazda!!!
