Question about 2006 Toyota Avalon Touring
Removed upper and lower alt. bolts. It's stuck and won't come out. Drive belt is off. Battery disconnected. Trying to replace AC compressor and need to remove alt., but it's stuck.
This gave me some trouble too as there is not a lot of room in this area to see what is going on. Turns out there is a 3rd bolt on the inside of the lower alternator arm ... but it is too difficult to reach in place. Fortunately, it attaches to the engine block via an "L" bracket, so just remove the 12mm bolt that fastens the bracket to the block (use 6" extension) and remove the alternator with the bracket still attached. Transfer the bracket to the new alternator before you install it. Go slowly, as you may find another electrical cable zip tied to the back of the alternator.

Loosen bolt A (pivot) and B (lock-bolt), then adjust C to loosen the belt so it can be removed.
Then, having routed the new belt as the old one was, tighten C until the belt has ~1/4-1/2" deflection with moderate thumb pressure. Then tighten down bolts A (torque to 38 ft-lbs) and B (to 15 ft-lbs).

SOURCE: need to replace broken lug bolt
If you have room behind the broken lug you can usually drive it out with a good smack of a sledge hammer. To re-install, use a stack of washers between the nut and flange and draw the lug into position. (plenty of oil on threads to avoid galling)

the fuse link is bolted in from the two side in the fusebox.you have to un bolt the whole fusebox so you can raise it and if you look at the sides there are two side panels that can be moved down so you can get a socket or spanner on the two bolts apprx 10mm. undo them and raise the fuse out and put the new one in and tighten up the bolts again. hope this helps.

you have to loosen the mounting bolts on the fuse panel and on the bottom side the fuse is held in by 2 8 millimeter bolts.
