I am replacing an alternator belt in a 2003 Impreza WRX. The cover is off the lock bolts are off and I still have no movement in any of the pulleys to get the new belt on. Do I have to loosen the alternator bolt as well?

Do you

Loosening the alternator bolt would make it easier. Pulling at the alternator belt should make the alternator move.
