Has anyone replace an alternator? I have a 1991 MB 300 te and the alternator went bad (car starts on a charge but as soon as cables are removed car goes dead after a few minutes).

The alternator is mounted by two bolts and is run by the belt. I know there is a belt tensionor but I don't know how to adjust the tension on the belt to take the alternator off and then tighten the belt back up again once I get the new alternator on.

Anyone have any tips? Are there special tools needed? Thanks.
