\015 How do you remove the alternator on a 2.7L? How do you loosen the belt?\015
To loosen the belt look for a pulley that isn't running anything. That is your tension pulley and somewhere either in the center of the pulley or arm the pulley is bolted to there will be a square hole that is the same size as a 1/2" drive socket. Find your 1/2" socket and put it in that hole and either in tightening or loosening position you should be able to move the pulley so the tension on the belt loosens up so you can take it off the pulley. then remove the bolts of the alternator and the wire plug and you got it whipped.
You will need a serpentine belt tensioner tool any auto parts store will have one,then consult your manual for exact procedure
