Toyota Repair/alternator belt


I have a 92 toyota pickup 22re 4wd 4 cylinder.  Just slipped my alternator belt and need to change it.  it appears that the other 2 belts will need removing to get to this one unless I'm missing something.  Some detailed directions would be great.

The a/c belt can be removed by releasing the a/c idler pulley center nut and turning the 14mm threaded rod on the bottom of the idler pulley bracket, the power steering belt comes off in the same way, just loosen the center 14mm nut on the pulley and turn the 14mm release bolt, the loosen the alternator adjustment bolt on the breacket and move the alternator until the belt can be removed.
