The bracket that holds the alternater, and the belt tensioner is in the way and I'm trying to remove it. I've removed 3 or 4 bolts with 15mm socket and does anybody know where they are all at???? I removed 1 from the back and 2 or 3 from the front....does one of the head bolts also hold it???

I think you have to take tensioner bolt out. I just complete the job on the Pontiac and that was my second car I've done this job on, and both times I unbolted the tensioner. the idler above the tensioner does not have to be unbolted though.
