Default Replace an alternator on 92 lexus SC 300?

What size wrench or socket do I need to loosent the tension so I can remove the belt. Also, what size wrench or socket do I need to remove the pulley that is attached to the alternator?

Should be a 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Most vehicle I've changed have been one or the other. If you have a basic wrench and socket set you should be good to go. There are not that expensive either so if you don't you can easily go get one. Oh, and if you have never done this before relax, this is a fairly easy job. It's always good to have a book on your vehicle that you can pickup at your local parts store! Good Luck

If you get the right alternator you won't need to remove the pulley. It will come with the right pulley on it.

I don't know the size wrench or socket... But what ever wrench or socket you find is the right size make sure it is a six point socket or box end wrench.
If you have one belt running all components then you just need to put a ratchet or socket on the tensioner pulley arm. It will either have a square hole in it to insert a ratchet on it, Or a nut. You just push on the ratchet or wrench in the opposite Direction the belt is laying on the pulley to relieve tension. It's a no brainer once you've found the pulley And can get the right tool on it. You can only go one way to relieve the tension.. But then you have to remember the way the belt goes around the pulleys if your car doesn't have a belt routing diagram somewhere under the hood.
