I have a '99 Frontier 4cyl with a bad water pump. I started to replaced it when i was quickly haulted by not being able to break loose the ac and alt. belts. Each unit has a "pivot" bolt and another bolt that slides in a "sleeve". I'm lost on why they are not breaking loose. Any help would be great! Thanks!

I've done all belts on both my '98 4 cylinder and on a 2002 4 cylinder, both the same, so yours should be same as well. The AC and power steering belts are removed by loosening the nut in idler pulley center, then loosening the adjusting bolt. The alternator is loosened by loosening the lockbolt (points rearward, head to front of truck), loosening the adjusting bolt (points to driver side), and ALSO loosening the 14mm head bolt on the underside, then pushing the alternator towards the engine. I wrote in my repair book that these all take 12mm or 14mm wrenches.
