Get a rent a tool from the parts store, release the tension and pull the belt, let the tensionor hit the stop and unbolt it.

not that easy on the 05+ tacoma's

yeah you can do that then you'll have to un bolt the alternator and a/c compressor to gain access to the mounting bracket bolts, i haven't done it but it looks like a nightmare

Thumbs down I gave up !!!!!!

I was under/over the truck..releasing tension and taking off belt is easy part..removed alt (easy part) A/C compressor sits on 4 bolts..removed 2 on top but 2 are at bottom and is almost impossible to access as the frame is right under it and i could not use impact or even hand wrench..tried and gave up..put it all back together to take it to a mechanic. I was quoted C$120-130 for installation..its not worth fighting over it.
