i just removed the air con and can anyone tell me how to loosen altenator to fit new belt . i un done the tensioner but the big bolt under just keeps spinning ??

You undo the side bolt a little and then turn the long bolt anticlockwise to wind the alternator down. You need a belt around 820mm long incase you was wondering.

You could use a block of wood and a hammer to knock the alternator down if your stuck...
I use a rubber mallet, but it's the same idea... don't hit it too hard; I've broken some of the "fins" off mine.
