How do I get the alternator off my 1999 2.5TDI 102BHP? I've had the belly pan off, found the alternator and removed all the wires. I can see how to unbolt it from the engine block, but how do i remove the AUX belt? I think I can see the tensioner at the top but can't see how to operate it. Is it easy (ie under an hours job) or do i take it to a garage.

Thanks

John

Had a quick look today (but got bored of being rained on so not too long!) I've found the mechanism but can't get a screwdriver behind it. Do you access it from above, or below with the belly pan off? Also, can I get the belt off and on with some gentle force or do I need to release the mechanism?

Found somewhere to overhaul the alternator for £60, just need to get it off first!

Thanks
