Is this the bracket that has the power steering pump under the alternator? If so the power steering pump has to be removed to remove bracket. To remove power steering pump you have to remove the pump pulley with a special tool and then press it back on with another tool. Both tools can be rented at your local Advanced auto parts store.

If the bolt broke flush, you'll need to soak it in a solution of 50% acetone and 50% auto trans fluid. Then get a left hand drill bit taht is smaller than the bolt and drill it out. The left hand bit drills in reverse of a regular bit and will drill into the remains of the bolt and back it out as well. If it broke above the surface, get a MIG welder and weld a nut onto it and remove the bolt.

Use 6-point wrenches or sockets to eliminate slip. From your post:

"i went to go drill the bolt out i got it drilled out but i was putting a new bolt in the alternator bracket cracked so i need to know how i can get the ac compressor off..."

I cannot tell whether the bolt cracked or the bracket cracked from your post above.

Do you have any kind of small cut off wheel?

99 dodge stratus, battery hold down bracket. I broke 1 of the bolt how do I remove and replace.

The best way would be to remove the battery and try to heat the nut and use a pair of grip pliers to remove the broken bolt.
Another way would be the remove the nut, this nut may be welded to tray. you will need to chisel it off and then use a regular nut. the only problem would be you should put a small tack weld on the nut to keep it from spinning next time you need to remove the battery.
The last thing is if it does not have a welded nut but rather a clip nut, in which you can pry if off by breaking the clip in two and removing it.

I have a 1971 Chevy stepside pick up with the drivers side tail light broken off. How do you remove the old on?

If it is bolted to a bracket, just take the nuts lose and it should come off. If the bracket is broke, see if it is bolted to the truck or welded.

Replace alternator

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. To change the alternator; the factory procedure at the dealership says to drop the sub-frame from under the front of the vehicle. Then everything is accessable. The tech at the dealership told me how they do it: (Its not easy!!) 1. Remove the right front tire 2. Remove dust pan from right front 3. Remove the brake caliper and caliper bracket 4. Remove the 2 bolts from the half shaft support bracket 5. Remove the half shaft axle assembly 6. Remove the serpentine belt 7. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator in place 8. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator mounting bracket 9. Remove the alternator mounting bracket 10. Remove the electrical connection on the alternator 11. Remove the alternator by turning the alternator until it will come out of the opening 12. Repeat process in reverse for installation. I did this twice in two weeks because of a bad alternator. The studs that are spot welded on the half shaft bracket will try to keep you from being able to remove the alternator. The left stud on the bracket popped out, when we were removing the alternator and it seemed to make it easier to get the alternator out. I just put a lock washer on the back side of the stud when I mounted the half shaft and it worked fine. Good luck
