SOURCE: 1990 nissan 300zx nonturbo - change alternator belt how?

If you look at the front of the alternator, behind the belt, you'll see a curving grooved metal track - that's the adjuster track for the alternator. There's a bolt going through the groove into the alternator, which holds the alternator in place. You need to loosen that. I believe it's a 14mm bolt. You may also need to loosen a couple of the 12mm bolts that mount either the bracket or the alternator, to allow it to move. You'll probably find that it's easier to cut the old belt off (so it's out of the way) and then do the bolt work with a little more room to spare. Belt changes are always a pain on these cars - stick with it even if it takes awhile. If that doesn't get the alternator loose, loosen or remove other bolts on the alternator mount or on the track mount, and it will move eventually - not much, but it'll move. You may find that you can partially seat the belt on the alternator pulley, but can't get the belt fully onto the pulley. If that's the case, get it as far on as you can, and then put a 27mm socket on a long breaker bar, put the socket on the crank pulley bolt, and with the car in neutral, rotate the crank pulley by hand. This will pull the belt onto the alternator pulley.

SOURCE: replacing alternator on 91 nissan 300zx

first jack up car then look on the passenger side of the car to find the alternator. there is a bracket right next to the crank pully going to the alternator. it is only one bolt. undo it. there is i believe a 15 mill bolt on top of the alternator with a lock nut on the back almost out of reach from the bottom. undo the bolt and the alternator will drop down into your hands. there is the tensioner bolt to tighten the belt on the bottom of the alternator you can loosen it up to make things easier on you. when the alternator is loose pull out gently as there is one clip connection and two ground bolts on the back of the unit itslef. undo all of these and slide your alt out the front. it may be easier to remove the clutch fan on the water pump pully first. (4 nuts)
