pathetic attempt at 300e alternator removal

First of all, thanks to all of you adept persons who have answered questions for the rest of us who are without a clue.
My problem.
How many bolts to loosen on the alternator and in what order?
Does the fan need to come out first?
Thanks,
Lazlo

removal is straight foward .Before starting locate the belt tensioner on front of engine between p.a.s pump pulley and waterpump pulley .LOOSEN THE BOLT on front of tensioner bracket from front of engine (19mm if i remember correctly) before turning tensioner adjusting bolt (13mm) located on top of engine next to pas pump reservoir lid.The adjuster bolt is gold in colour and approx 2 inches tall, turn anti- clockwise and check belt is working loose (just enough to slide over alernator pulley). And on the alternator there is one bolt through bracket from front of engine and a nut and bolt under alternator both accesible from top of engine.On completion refit belt to pulley adjust (13mm) and lock (19mm) lockbolt on front of tensioner. Check belt is located corectly on all other pulleys before starting.
