Default Belt change help - Not timing belt

So I will be changing my accessory belts tomorrow and the large belt seems easy enough with the tensioner, but I dont see how to change the Alternator belt. I saw one post saying there is a 13mm bolt that you have to locate. Is that it? Does it work like the other belt with a tensioner or do you have to remove the alternator? Or maybe just take out two bolts?

Any help is appreciated. I can do a lot mechanically. I had the left wheel off and the splash guard off, just cant see any tensioner for the alternator.

Thanks Steve

No tensioner on the alternator drive belt. Loosen the alternator lower pivot bolt, loosen the lock nut (upper), loosen the adjustment screw (counterclockwise) until you can slip the belt off of the alternator pulley.

Thanks Carl48

Just finished. I had to remove the bottom bolt all together to get enough slack on the Alternator belt to remove. Than that was the hardest part of the whole job, getting it back in. It took just over an hour total. Not too bad.
