No problem unbolting them but you need to twist and turn it a bit to get it out and in. Sometimes helps to remove the bracket on the front. Make sure to disconnect the battery so you don't short anything out. Most come out from underneath.

How do you replace an alternator on 1991 Mercury Capri XR 2 turbo

Remove alternator, replace alternator. Get your self a service manual if you can't figure it out. They sell them at the same place the alternator is sold.

Going through starters and alternators?

If you keep replacing starters and alternators, they aren't the problem. Starters: check your battery's ground cable.
Alternators: Make sure you're also replacing the rectifier circuit. Alternators make alternating current and it must be converted to direct current. This happens in the rectifier, and arrangement of three diodes. Diodes are like a one way street for electricity. But sometimes, they fail and leak backwards.
Then they quietly drain your battery overnight. It drives a lot of people nuts figuring that one out.

I need to figure out how to change the belt on a 1994 Mazda Protege alternator

GO HERE. It shows the procedure for changing out the complete alternator, but the belt procedure is in there also. You don't have to remove all the stuff mentioned in the instructions. Just loosen the alternator bolts, disconnect the electrical connector and remove and replace the belt. No big deal. Good luck.
