ALternator Belt

I have a 1995 Mazda MX-3, 4-cyl 1.6-L, who's belt broke the other day. I'm nto sure how to replace it. I just don't quite see how to get to the alternator... I found a link to the Chilton Auto Library, but their description wasn't very good for me. If someone can point me to a more thorough one, I'd be very thankful.

There should be 3 belts on your vehicle. Which belt broke? I will assume that the Alternator belt is the culprit as that is what you mentioned. Unfortunately the alternator is on the back of the engine towards the firewall on your car. There should be 2 bolts on the Alternator that you will need to loosen slightly and then an adjusting screw that you back off of to allow the belt to be removed (or in your case to allow you to put the new belt on).
Hope this is helpful to ya,

Yeah, I should have been a bit more specific. Yes, the v-belt for the alternator broke. I have a friend who knows a lot more than me helping me out. Thanks for the help.
