1986 Cadillac Fleetwood • 90,000 miles

Belt broke. How do you loosen the alternator so that you can put the belt on?

Loosten the retaining bolts on the alt to alt bracket. The top bolt is on a slide. Push the alt toward the engine to loosen. When replacing, pull the alt to tighten belt. See attached picture.


Is this a front or rear wheel drive?
