replacing alternator belt on 1991 honda civic

hello- i was just curious if anyone has replaced an alternator belt on a 1991 honda civic lx- 1.5 liter motor before. i went to start it this morning on my way to work and the belt squealed for a second then broke. there might be a possibility that the alternator is seized up or something. i havent had a chance to really look at it yet but it looks like a tight area to work in and I was just curious on the easiest way to attack this problem. thank you for your time!

There is not a lot of room as you can see, but most Honda's are not too bad to replace the belt. There will be a plastic splash guard at the bottom of the wheel well. Often removung the tire and the splash guard make it a lot easier.

If it squealed be sure to check the alternator as it may have seized up.
