    i havent taken the alternator off mate but when i did water pump i took my timing cover off and belt(obviously lol) easiest thing mate jack the car up remover o/s wheel another jack under engine and drop it off the engine mount you can lower it just enough to reach it all, the other way to get belt off is to get a rachet on tensioner but i couldnt do it as it was too close to chassis hope that helps. before anybody starts sayings its a bit rash dropping engine for alternator as im sure they will i did that for the timing cover and just saying it will make it easier

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    When I did my alternator on my old car (same engine as yours), I did it all from above. From memory, I removed the airbox, the front coolant hose to the radiator and a couple of small brackets and that was it.

    The belt is held tight by a VERY strong spring loaded tensioner, there's a small slot above the tensioner that you can "just" get a small bar into and lever the tensioner downwards to loosen the belt but be very careful you dont damage the tensioner. In the end it took two of us, one holding the tensioner and the other moving the belt off the pulley.

    If you were closer I'd do it for you, it only took me about 45 mins or so, start to finish. It's fiddly but not a massive job. Fingers crossed for you mate.

    Default alternator belt removed

    Did eventually managed to remove the belt, had to use a long enough piece of wood and put it under the belt tensioner and then jack the whole thing. not the best way but can be done in just about 5-10 mins.
