Can't be sure as I have a 2.1TD but I've just bought a 2.0 petrol and I'll check later today for you

As far as I know you need to slacken the bolt that the alternator pivots on then the other one (along inline with the engine) it should be a smaller size head, slacken it too.
Then there should be an adjuster nut beside the smaller one that moves in and out This one pivots the alternator in or out

You need to pivot the alternator right in, then fit the new belt and use the adjuster nut to pivot the alternator out until the belt tightens

Proper tension is when you can twist the belt thru 45 to 60 degrees from its normal rest position with a little effort. You do this on the longest straight run of the belt(i.e. Tight but not TOO tight as you'll run a bearing somewhere

A good Idea is to keep your keys in your pocket and not in the ignition as sprogs love jumpin in and playin cars???
