    I found the third and lst 12mm bolt holding back the Alternator from coming out. There is (1) upper bolt and (2) lower bolts securing the alternator in a 2006 Toyota Avalon Touring Edition. One of the lower bolts is well hidden. Total bolts to be removed = 3. Thanks to all that viewed my postings.on this issue.

    I have the same car '06 Avalon Touring), same problem. I can not locate the third bolt. Have removed the serpinted belt from alt & removed two bolts. Alt will slightly pivot but cannot remove. Is there a htird bolt to remove? If so, where the hell is is? Also looks like there is no room to get alt out once loose.

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.

SOURCE: I need details on how to replace 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)

SOURCE: Removing the 100 amp fuse link in a 1994 toyota corolla

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.
