Question about 1989 Acura Legend
There is a 10 bolt on the left which does the adjusting it is behind a "U" shaped alignment washer midway down the stud that you took the nut off (that held the middle of the 3 cover holdowns). This bolt goes through the left alternator 12 nut/stud and you will also have to take out the 14 bolt on the right. Turn the bolt clockwise and it will take the tension off the belt so you can get it off the pulley. To get the alternator back on point the 12 stud at an angle to receive the left side of the alternator while keeping it against the engine removal flange and in the "U". Drop the alternator into position on the right and put the large 14 bolt through. Now put the 12 nut onto the left stud and count how many times you drop the nut. You can tape it to a screwdriver and get it into position where you can get a quarter turn on it. Replace the belt (if new you will need to support the engine and take off the left side mount) and tighten the 10 until the belt has 1/2" play at the middle. Not too tight but not loose enough to move the pulley by hand. Tighten the 12 (left) and 12 (right) and replace the wires and covers. Get bandaids for your wounds.
